We could win !!

In this Hindi tutorial

You will learn the usage of auxiliary verb “could” in Hindi.

Learn to make sentences like “I could speak Hindi” or “I could write” in Hindi.

“Could”  functions as the past tense of  “can”.

“I can speak” looks very similar “I could speak” very similar in English.  Only “can” is replaced with “could”.

In Hindi we don’t do anything different.

We replace “सकता हूँ / सकती हूँ ” with “सका /सकी” for first person pronouns. These form changes with different pronouns.

The following table includes some examples which will make you more clear about the usage of “could” in Hindi.
