little book, November 11, 2004
The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that the Hindi script is
very difficult to read to the untrained eye. If I wanted to take one of
the translated sentences and write it myself for practice, I'd have to
check a more legible book for exactly what the characters should look
like, since the ink in the book bleeds a little and the type is so

This book is great for beginners learning Hindi. My husband is Indian
and when I received this book and starting saying the words and
sentences he was impressed on how quickly and correctly I could speak!
Of course, I'm not even close to fluent...but it's nice to start out on
the right foot! I recommend this if you want to start learning Hindi.
It's a small book so great for sticking in your purse and taking it with

I just received this book in the mail and I love it. I work in a hotel
owned by Indians and up until now, communication has been difficult. A
clerk had been teaching me how to say simple phrases regarding
housekeeping, etc. I can carry this book in my pocket while I'm at work.
Already, I've been able to communicate better with the other workers and
to remember how to say the words because the pronounciations are all
here. If you want to learn Hindi, this is a good book for it.

This book is amazing. It has a ton of phrases and words. Also, the Hindi
words are spelled out the way they sound and written in English so you
can say them. If you still can not say something, it is written in Hindi
as well so you could show a word or phase to a Hindi understanding
person and they would understand you.

This book includes common questions and phrases one would need to
survive a trip to India. It's inexpensive price makes it a great
Expressions are written in both Devanagari and Roman transliteration.
The transliteration does a decent job of conveying how to pronounce
Hindi words, but keep in mind that Hindi sounds are softer than English
'teen' (Hindi for 3) sounds quite different from English 'teen.'
