Language Redo

Postby jacquemarie » Sun Nov 01, 2020 8:36 pm

My old language log is a mess.

Need to redo.

Resources:
LangCorrect.com (writing and being corrected by native speakers)
Hinkhoj (Hindi dictionary)
Wordreference.com (grammar rules, words in context)
Learning-hindi.com (free online lessons)
iTalki (tutors)
Reddit (r/languagelearning, r/spanish, r/hindi)
Hellotalk (not often, too many spammy people)
spanishdict.com


At A2/B1 Hindi. Just started spanish the other day and also will be learning German.

That's interesting!! I'll have to add that to my list of things I know. It's fascinating how the language evolves in different areas!

Need to post on here more often, but I have been active in learning still.

I successfully read and cooked a recipe in Hindi yesterday without studying the recipe beforehand and I did not burn anything while trying to figure out the next steps. A year ago, I attempted this with a different recipe and had to write it all out in English because I was too slow.

I am very happy with my progress so far.

I am also now able to construct fairly complex sentences in Hindi with only a little difficulty, mostly with intransitive vs transitive verbs and oblique cases. For example, "Mujhe lagta hai ki jab hum car mei tab hum sirf hindi mei bolna chahiye" is how I constructed it but it should have been "Mujhe lagta hai ki jab hum car mei HAIN tab HUME sirf hindi mei bolna chahiye" is what I was told. I sometimes miss "hona - to be" in complex sentences but I am not sure way "we should only speak in hindi" is in the oblique but I THINK it is because of chahiye. I think if I had said "hum sirf hindi mei bolte h" then I would have been grammatically correct and it would not be in the oblique (though then it would not be a suggestion and would be "i think when we are in the car we only speak in Hindi" which is awkward and doesn't portray what I need it too. (I think when we are in the car we should only speak in Hindi.)

I'm only an advanced beginner in Hindi, but I believe चाहिए always needs the oblique when used to mean "should". Otherwise चाहना means "to want" and the conjugation you used would be the imperative form (which doesn't make much sense).

thanks for the link --
I ended up talking with a tutor and they explained that to me ~ This is a very good website though, I've saved it! Hope your Hindi studies are going well.

most to least recent. it is amazing to see how far i've progressed. i no longer struggle coming up with most of the words and can keep a flow when writing, substituting the english word when i'm not sure about the hindi word and looking the hindi word up later

Had a small conversation and ordered my food in Hindi today ~ I received the correct order so did okay! My boyfriend and I eded up receiving free dessert from it too (Shopkeeper was excited that I was learning Hindi and wanted to congratulate me on my progress). Pretty neat what language can do.
