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!

I wish there was a second level Rocket Hindi course for after I complete and review and review this first one. It's great that my account still gets all of the improvements and updates that occurred after I purchased it. It makes me feel like Rocket Languages really is focused on their customers learning the language and not on getting people to continuously pay money for upgrades etc. Thanks!

Some of the words and structure are a bit old fashioned but you can't beat the price. Also it's great to be able to access all content through different apps so I can do lessons on my phone without downloading them first.
