Book Description

23 Sep 2011 Lonely Planet Phrasebook: Hindi, Urdu & Bengali

Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher

Hindi and Urdu are generally considered to be one spoken language with two different literary traditions. This means that Hindi and Urdu speakers who shop in the same markets (and watch the same Bollywood films) have no problems understanding each other. Bengali is spoken by approximately 220 million people, ranking it as the fourth most spoken language in the world.

This book gives you the practical phrases you need to get by in Hindi, Urdu and Bengali, as well as all the fun, spontaneous phrases that can lead to a better understanding of its speakers. Once you've got the hang of how to pronounce the language, the rest is just a matter of confidence. Local knowledge, new relationships and a sense of satisfaction are on the tip of your tongue. So don't just stand there, say something!

Lonely Planet gets you to the heart of a place. Our job is to make amazing travel experiences happen. We visit the places we write about each and every edition. We never take freebies for positive coverage, so you can always rely on us to tell it like it is.

Authors: Written and researched by Lonely Planet, Richard Delacy, and Shahara Ahmed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but tedious to use 20 May 2013
By Sabrina
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has everything you need, however I find it quite difficult to dip in and out of.
It is very cluttered and the spellings are often more confusing than need be.
I would recommend "Making Out in Hindi" (Making Out Phrase Book Series) which gives extremely useful and conversational hindi. This book of mine is tattered and torn with overuse. This Lonely Planet guide is still in pristine condition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful for the basics 20 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for the Bengali section in particular and it will be helpful when I am out and about in India. It has the basic phrases in it and is well laid out and easy to use. Really pleased with it even though I will only use a third of it.

2.0 out of 5 stars You won't learn enough 21 Jan 2013
That one soon will be chatting and joking with the locals after having read this book is hyperbole. It may be useful for pointing to words and sort of make oneself understood, but considering that the three languages covered each use alphabets with characters that change shape according to context in ways that are not explained in the book and that grammar is covered rather summarily one soon realises that one's ability to read signs or engage in conversation is going to be quite restricted. I think I next time will go for a more serious book, perhaps "Bengali for foreigners", which I saw in a store and stupidly did not pick up.
