Still Learning Hindi

This is how I’m spending all my free time these days:

Yep, I’m still learning Hindi. As the screenshot shows, I’m currently at the top of the uppermost league in the system: the Diamond League!

It’s going to be a hard fought battle tomorrow between me and Rรกski as to who finishes on top, but being as he/she (anyone here from Hungary who can tell me a gender from a name?) goes to bed an hour before me, I think I have a good chance.

Hope I haven’t put a goat in my mouth by saying this.

    • Yes it is! But a rather frustrating one too. Someone once told me that you have to translate the whole sentence as a whole rather than try to get the meaning from translating each individual word. I’m struggling with that, but I’m sure I’ll get it with practice.

      • Definitely!! I struggled with Hindi at school and relied heavily on Google Translate which wasn’t a good idea๐Ÿ˜‚
        It’s quite a bit like English in that manner. You have to understand what it means from the context it is being used in rather than the word-by-word meaning. I watched cartoons to get the hang of it ๐Ÿ˜‚
        Hope it works out for you!!

    • Oh, it’ll be a good while before I can chat in Hindi. Two problems: every single phrase I know goes straight out of my head as soon as I get the opportunity, and: I just don’t know how to say the important stuff in Hindi, such as: ‘Holy crap, why are you speaking so fast!’ or ‘Could you repeat that please but say it as if you’re talking to a retarded turtle.’ ๐Ÿ˜€
