HindiCourse Taught In :
EnglishThe Good :
+ Has a good introduction to the Devanagari script.
+ Course consists of over 20 lessons covering basic Hindi grammar, expressions and vocabulary.
+ The first 9 lessons include a video with script as a teaching aid for listening comprehension.
+ All of the vocabulary lists are fairly extensive and include audio files.
+ Some of the lessons include useful cultural notes and some even include quizzes and exercises to test you on what you have learnt.The Bad :
+ There are a few too many dead links in the later lessons.
+ Romanization is not used and may be an obstacle for beginners unless they're willing to memorise the script first.
+ Some of the later lessons do not have videos or exercises and may be a little less useful for learners.The Verdict :
While this site is one of the more extensive Hindi courses online, learners may be put off by the amount of 'dead links' there are. Nevertheless, the consistent use of audio files and Hindi script throughout and the excellent grammar lessons should make this course ideal for anyone who wants to get a basic grasp of this important South Asian language.Tags : [hindi]
