Tenses in Hindi

Tenses are essential part of learning Hindi.Tenses in Hindi give us idea about the time at which the action took place.  “I play”, “I am playing”, “I played” and “I will play” are  sentences in different tenses. To express a verb in different tenses, either the verb is slightly modified (addition of -ing or -ed at the end) or supporting verbs are used (use of “am” or “will”). These modifications either at the verb or in the sentences are done to express a verb in different tenses. This is what we do in English. Hindi is no different.  In Hindi also, the verbs are either modified or a new supporting verb is introduced to express a sentence in different tenses.

Instead of learning by memorizing tables, it is always better to learn through examples. Following lessons will take you to the individual page of tenses in Hindi. Each tense is explained with numerous examples and instant quizzes.
