Health in Hindi

You never know when you might need to talk about health in Hindi. Maybe you’re travelling in India and need to visit a drugstore. Perhaps you’re traveling elsewhere with a Hindi-speaking family member who needs a doctor. Either way, we hope you never need to use them, but check out this free audio lesson – it doesn’t hurt to be prepared!

Do you know the Hindi words for different parts of the body? What’s the Hindi word for “pain”? How do you tell someone to call an ambulance, or explain that your head hurts? After this lesson you’ll be able to describe your symptoms in Hindi, and know what to say in an emergency if necessary. Let’s get started…

Pronunciation help for talking about health in Hindi

As hard as you try, without helpful feedback your Hindi pronunciation is never going to be the same as a native speaker’s. If you've found it difficult to perfect the way you say Hindi words and phrases, this lesson will help you.

Using the blue Rocket Record buttons you can record the way you say each greeting or farewell, and compare it with the way a native speaker of Hindi does. That’s right, with Rocket Languages voice mapping technology you can record your voice as many times as you need until your pronunciation matches the Hindi speaker!
