There are two places I recommend you to start at when you are beginning to learn to speak Hindi (after you’ve learnt to read). There’s another book by Rupert Snell called Complete Hindi, and there’s the Hindi University YouTube channel.
When I first started learning how to speak, I used Complete Hindi, and once I completed that (the book has become tatty with use), I began going through the more complicated lessons at Hindi University and also joining their free weekly live lesson.
If I were starting again from scratch today, I’d do both in tandem. I’d work from the book and watch the beginner videos at Hindi University. Then you get the benefit of the book and the audio/visual element of learning and hearing others speak which is so important.
Once you start getting more advanced, Hindi University is your best resource for improving as I haven’t found any book that can teach advanced and in-depth Hindi.
In the next post, we’ll talk about what will bind your learning to read and speak together, a teacher!
