Hindi pronunciation tip: There are some sounds in the Hindi language that are not represented by letters in the English alphabet, so in your Rocket Hindi lessons we use a mixture of capital and lowercase letters to symbolise them. For example: "hooAO." "hoo" sounds in the usual way, and the combination "AO" produces a nasal sound thus giving the correct "Hindi sound."
