Some Important Hindi to Learn

On my last trip to India, I found a marvellous book for learning Hindi! Yes I thought, finally I can speak the language of the country I love so much.

I was proud as punch of my new purchase and couldn’t wiat to test it out on my friends….. Apparently it wasn’t to be quite as useful as first thought.

Here are a few of the phrases from the book:

The buffalo is as impressed with your flute playing, your playing a flute in front of a buffalo.

Note, If you do want to learn Hindi – make sure to ask your trusted Indian friends. Or do a lesson in Hindi with actual teachers – don’t spend $8 on a book….my bad!
