Questions in Hindi

Here are some essential questions in Hindi to know before you travel. When does the bus leave? When does the train arrive? Where is the bank? The restroom? After this free audio lesson you’ll know how to ask 'when' and 'where' in Hindi, and some other useful vocabulary.

Need to exchange money? Looking for a tourist information center? The Rocket Hindi team is here to help!

Listen to the pronunciation, and practice these common questions and Hindi words aloud. We’ve made it real easy to follow and you'll never have an excuse to be late or lost in India.

How to pronounce questions 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!

Congratulations, you have completed this lesson. Don’t forget to practice your new vocabulary as much as possible. I always find that writing words or phrases on post-it notes and putting them up around my house is a good way to memorize them. Put a series of words or phrases on the bathroom wall and practice them as you brush your teeth each day!

फिर मिलेंगे ।
Phir Milengae,

I love learning Hindi with Rocket Languages! The program couldn't be easier to follow. I listen in my car on my way to and from work, then I take the quiz at home. I love learning languages and I can't wait to master Hindi and brush up on my Italian. The badges really help keep you motivated- I like having something to work towards. I can't wait to show off my Hindi skills on my next trip to India.

You should try as many resources as possible when learning a new language. Prior to Rocket Languages, I consulted a textbook, Rosetta Stone software, and Pimsleur audio lessons. The Rocket Languages program is the most balanced approach, when it comes to learning styles.

Textbook
+ Index and dictionary
+ Many opportunities for explanation and background information
- Very linear
- Not immersive

Rosetta Stone
+ The most vocabulary
+ Visual reinforcement through images
+ Very slick interface
- No English
- No explanations
- Images are bad at expressing multiple ideas
- Images are bad at expressing time and use of tenses
- The grading scale is unhelpful

Audible
+ Efficient explanations
+ Easy progression in small steps
+ Lots of repetition
- The reading lessons are tacked on at the end
- Poor exposure to the written word
- Poor explanation of tenses

Rocket Languages
+ Listening, Reading, and Speaking functionality is strongly integrated
+ High quality audio
+ PDF handouts and downloads make it easy to learn away from the computer
+ Curriculum offers multiple definitions, when appropriate
- The progression is a little fast
- Needs more repetition within the audio lessons
- Maybe pair the audio lessons with a slideshow for visual reinforcement?

Rocket Languages is the best value, when compared to other learning solutions. I will go to Rocket Languages first when I try my next language.

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!
