  3. Good Day admin. I have only one thing based on my uncertainty. When is it necessary to say “Ho” and “Hoon”? I chronically make mistakes such as this and I am kindly requesting for your assistance in this problem. Thank you very much in advance administrator and I am patiently looking forward to your kind response. Have a very blessed day and week!

    Yours respectfully,

    1. ‘Ho’ is for second person. ‘Hoon’ is for first person. You can see the first 2-3 lessons on pronouns for more examples. Thanks.

  4. This is very helpful for me thanks a lot .Can i please know how do you say “we” in Hindi? And what does “aap acche hain” mean? Cant we say main bhuuk lage hoon since its i am? thank you once again for your help….

  5. This is a site to learn hindi for someone who does not know the language.
    But the exercises at the end of the lessons are written in hindi scripts. If one could read hindi script, they can very well speak it with these basics.
    Please make sense by putting together in english.
