Practice Makes Perfect: Basic Hindi is the ideal resource for starting your study of the Hindi language. This book is well suited for anyone interested in beginning to learn Hindi. Whether you are in high school, college, or graduate school or simply want to explore Hindi, this book is the perfect place to start. It can be used either as a primary practice text to accompany a Hindi course or as a supplement to bridge the gap between other Hindi resources. With eight parts, twenty-five chapters, and more than sixty individual sections, this is a user-friendly workbook that has a variety of features—script practice, accessible grammar, sufficient explanations, practice exercises, categorical vocabulary sets, and cultural information—all in one place. The content is presented in an easy-to-follow sequence that develops from elementary information to complex grammar over the course of eight chapters. In the first part, a step-by-step approach and specially tailored practice spaces are provided for an easy grasp of the Hindi script. In the second part, user-friendly explanations demystify the complexities of diacritic marks and conjunct characters and enable you to begin reading, writing, and understanding Hindi words. In the next six parts, functional and organized vocabulary sets and tables build a practical vocabulary for day-to-day use. Interwoven with the vocabulary are basic Hindi grammatical tenses and concepts that are explained in an easy-to-understand manner and applied in a variety of exercises. At various points throughout the text, the Hindi language learning experience is also enhanced by useful cultural notes and insights. Also, for leisure reading, an optional reading and writing practice is given at the end of each part, along with a glossary of new words and relevant cultural information. You can read these at your own pace. Answers to all exercises can be found in the answer key at the back of the book.
