365 Days of Hindi


I’ve now been learning Hindi for a whole year on Duolingo!

Thing is, though, although I have several hundred words that I can read, write (sometimes), understanding and speak in Hindi, I have no confidence that I can use them conversationally. I just haven’t had that kind of practice.

I know quite a few people whose family are originally from India, but most of them are several generations away from those roots and so only know a few words of Hindi (or Gujarati or Malayalam). I’m all for integration, but losing the ability to speak in more than one language isn’t something I’d opt for.

Never mind, though – maybe in a few more years I will know enough Hindi to teach it back to them. I hope so. Wouldn’t that be fine!
