Details: Product Description An original two-in-one monograph that serves as an ideal guide-book for beginners, Hindi for Non-Hindi Speaking People has sprung from Kavita Kumar's long experience of teaching Hindi to foreign students of different nationalities. Useful as a classroom text, as well as for self-study, this book is designed to meet the requirements of the novice, gradually moving towards intermediate and upper intermediate levels of proficiency. It is, as a result, also useful for fairly advanced students of the language, helping to hone grammatical mistakes in speech and writing. The book is a comprehensible and interesting course comprising a series of meticulously arranged lessons, taking the reader on a journey through the Hindi alphabet, including its vowels, consonants and phonetics, applying them to daily-life situations in India. It also includes practice exercises, lists of antonyms and synonyms, words and phrases, idioms and other grammar essentials. Hindi for Non-Hindi Speaking People fulfils the long-felt need for a handbook on Hindi grammar for non-Hindi speaking people, inside and outside the country. Review This book is a great book for someone who wants an overview of the Hindi language. In some ways it is similar to "Outline of Hindi Grammar" by Mcgreggor but much more accessible. This would be great for people already familiar with grammar terminology or for people who already have some basis in the Hindi language but would like a fairly complete overview of the grammar. This book is not for the absolute beginner to Hindi Grammar. For that I would recommend "Introduction to Hindi Grammer" by Usha Jain. --By A Customer on 28 August 2013 About the Author Kavita Kumar was born in Rawalpindi in 1936.
