An original two-in-one monograph that serves as an ideal guide-book for beginners, Hindi for Non-Hindi Speaking People has sprung from Kavita Kumar’s long experience of teaching Hindi to foreign students of different nationalities. Useful as a classroom text, as well as for self-study, this book is designed to meet the requirements of the novice, gradually moving towards intermediate and upper intermediate levels of proficiency. It is, as a result, also useful for fairly advanced students of the language, helping to hone grammatical mistakes in speech and writing.
The book is a comprehensible and interesting course comprising a series of meticulously arranged lessons, taking the reader on a journey through the Hindi alphabet, including its vowels, consonants and phonetics, applying them to daily-life situations in India. It also includes practice exercises, lists of antonyms and synonyms, words and phrases, idioms and other grammar essentials.
Hindi for Non-Hindi Speaking People fulfils the long-felt need for a handbook on Hindi grammar for non-Hindi speaking people, inside and outside the country.
