First Hindi notebook attempt

 

Kal mera janmadin tha!
Main Georgia, USA men rahtee hoon. Main do bacce hain, dono ladkiyaan. Main bhi do billiyaan. Main pharmacy techncian hoon, men hospital. Main hindi seekhnaa chahtee hoon. Jab main thodee hindi seekhtee to main bhaarat aounga. Men ek saal.
Phir milenge!

My family and friends think I am crazy to learn Hindi. Why bother learning a language you will probably never use, they all ask. They think it is strange enough when I watch Bollywood movies, now this?!... but isn't learning ANYTHING new, a good thing?

Namaste

    कल मेरा जन्मदिन था!

    मैं Georgia, USA में रेहती हूं। मेरी दो बच्चियां हैं। मेरी दो बिल्लियां भी हैं। मैं अस्पताल में pharmacy techncian हूं। मैं हिंदी सीखना चाहती हूं। जब मैं थोड़ी हिंदी सीख जाउंगी, तब मैं भारत आउंगी - आषा है एक साल में।

    फिर मिलेंगे!

    Firstly, belated wishes on your birthday.

    I recieved the same reactions as you, when I ventured into the Russian language. There is no harm in learning something new - true. But there is more; learning a new language, for the mind, is like jogging for the body. Not exhausting but an engaging and essential exercise. And just like jogging, it benefits when done regularly. You have apparently gotten off to a good start. I guess you are already following a textbook. Please keep at it. Best of luck :)

    Main Do bacce hain

    Mere do bachche hein

    'Mere' instead of 'main' (Sambandh karak =>Genetive/Possessive case) and 'hein' instead of 'hain' because you are talking about two kids (plural).

     

    Main bhi do billiyaan

    Mere paas do biliyaan bhi hein (I have also two cats).

    Notice the same case in the sentence.

    'bhi' = also

     

    men hospital => hospital mein => in hospital

     

    Jab main thodee hindi seekhtee to main bhaarat aounga.

    seekhtee = > seekhongi (future tense) => would learn

    Similar words - karoungi (will/would do), gaaungi(will/would sing), khaungi(will/would eat),

    soungi(will/would sleep)

    In this sentence you used 'Jab'(When), this makes the verb conditional thats why - "would learn" instead of "will learn".


    bhaarat aounga = > bharat aaoungi

    'aaoungi' because you are female.

    Simple tip all feminine verbs ends with ई (pronounced as ee) and maculine with aa(आ). These are hindi svara(vowels). See some similar words above.

     

    Happy belated birthday and see you soon in India.
