View Full Version : I'm looking for a language program or course

I'm looking to learn basic Hindi and was wondering if anyone had a language course they no longer use or need. I'm not sure how much I can pay, money is tight but I would like to learn basic Hindi so I can better appreciate my Bollywood Movies

Wow! Hindi, while a major language by any measure, is probably going to be a hard one to find in Salt Lake City. Have you tried Rosetta Stone? They have programs on many languages, but I can't say whether they have one for Hindi.
Oh, you might also try looking into posting an ad at the bulletin boards, maybe especially in the School of Business, at your local universities. (Does BYU have a campus in SLC?) You might find Hindi speaking exchange students who might be willing to work out some kind of tutoring deal with you, depending on what kind of expertise you possess.

Audio is essential in something like Hindi. And since native speakers love to freely slip in-and-out of English randomly, it's confusing. If possible, befriend a native speaker who will help you. Written, "Romanized" Hindi transliterations vary person to person so you need to hear the cadence properly to recognize the inflections.

Have you tried 'Live Mocha?' It's a free website that is verry indepth and works pretty good IMO. I'm using it right now to brush up on my Spanish. I especially like how they put you in contact with native speakers of the language you are learning who are learning you own native language, that way you can help each other along the way. They do have Hindi. http://www.livemocha.com/

I do highly recommend you to check out Pimsleur audio-courses, which are available in a plethora of languages, including Hindi. I think they are THE BEST resource that actually covers essencial expressions in each language. - That's how I began to learn speaking Japanese, and I've never looked back ever since. :)
