Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I take this if I'm a beginner?
A: Yes! This course is for beginners in spoken Hindi.
Q: How is this course different from other online courses?
A: Instead of teaching through the easiest to most complex ideas like textbooks or YouTube videos do, we have taken a different approach.

We make the difficult concepts simple when providing context to help you communicate with ease and avoid fumbling, even with challenging grammatical manipulations.

A: You will be able to talk about what you are doing (first person) and ask questions about what other people are doing (second person) in present tense and future tense.
By the end of the course, you will have dozens of new phrases to use and practice in every day life and the tools to make sentences and questions on your own.
Q: Do I need to know Devanagari script for this course?
A: No, but I do utilize Devanagari references from time to time, so that those who already know how to read can make connections for pronunciation.
Q: Can I take this if I haven't taken your other courses?
A: This course builds on material from Hindi Hacks, but doesn't require you to take Hindi Hacks. I've designed them so you can take both without overlap.
