    i am ready to teach you Hindi . Hindi is my native language.

     

    Namaste,
    Apart from Teacher's suggestion (it's good though), you may start with Devnagari Script / Hindi script. You may do without it too. In that case, you will have to follow Romaji - Hindi in English. Good method to start learning is Basic grammar, Sentence Pattern, Use of Tenses coupled with Conversation practice.
    I wish you ' All the Best '
    Keep it up.

    You can start off by reading a lot of Hindi books. You can begin with easier books like young adult or children's ones and then slowly progress to adult fiction and even non-fiction. If you are interested in the topic of the book, then it'll probably be fun to read! You should take notes while reading the book and if you have any questions, ask a native Hindi speaker if you have any questions.

    Another fun thing to do is to find Hindi music that you like and try translating it into your own language. Some easier genres of music to study are indie, pop, rock, and folk. Keep in mind that some of the phrases might not be used in everyday conversation, but it will help you build your vocabulary.

    Watch TV programs or movies in Hindi. They're actually a lot more helpful when you're trying to start a conversation, because they'll have a lot more common phrases than reading a book or listening to music will have.

    You should always look over what you've studied before or try to use it in everyday conversations with native speakers or people who are also practicing Hindi. Now that you know it, you have to practice it! :)

    Don't put all your time into learning Hindi, because practicing is half of it. If all you do is learn from a textbook, then it'll be hard to use when you're actually in America or another Hindi-speaking country. So be sure to put in a good amount of time talking to other Hindi speakers. Practice never harms you.

    =) Good luck!
