Book Description

Making Out in Hindi is a fun, accessible and thorough Hindi phrase book and guide to the Hindi language as it's really spoken.

Tumhari sundar ankhen hain. Phir se milen?—(You have beautiful eyes. Shall we meet again?) Answer this correctly in Hindi and you may be going on a hot date. incorrectly, and you could be hurting someone's feelings or getting a slap! Hindi classes and textbooks tend to spend a lot of time rehearsing for the same fictitious scenarios but chances are while in india, Nepal, or anywhere else where Hindi is spoken, you will spend a lot more time trying to make new friends or start new romances—something you may not be prepared for.

if you are a student, businessman or tourist traveling to india and would like to have an authentic and meaningful experience, the key is being able to speak like a local. This friendly and easy-to-use Hindi phrasebook makes this possible. Making Out in Hindi has been carefully designed to act as a guide to modern colloquial Hindi for use in everyday informal interactions—giving access to the sort of catchy Hindi expressions that aren't covered in traditional language materials. As well as the Romanized form of Hindi, each expression is given in authentic Hindi script (Devanagari), so that in the case of difficulties the book can be shown to the person the user is trying to communicate with.

This Hindi phrasebook includes:

  • A guide to pronouncing Hindi words correctly, including vowels, consonants and nasalization.
  • Explanations of basic Hindi grammar, such as, male vs. female, formal vs. informal, loan words and synonyms.
  • Complete Hindi translations including Devanagari.
  • useful and interesting notes on the Hindi language and indian culture.
  • Lots of colorful, fun and useful expressions not covered in other phrasebooks.

Titles in this unique series of bestselling phrase books include: Making Out in Chinese, Making Out in indonesian, Making Out in Thai, Making Out in Korean, Making Out in Hindi, Making Out in Japanese, Making Out in Vietnamese, Making Out in burmese, Making Out in Tagalog, Making Out in Hindi, Making Out in Arabic, Making Out in English, More Making Out in Korean, and More Making Out in Japanese.

From the Back Cover

Making Out in Hindi is a fun, accessible guide to contemporary Hindi as it's really spoken. It's the perfect phrase book for everyday interactions, and includes lots of colorful colloquial expressions not covered in other phrase books.

Making Out in Hindi also features a pronunciation guide, notes on the Hindi language and Indian culture, and guidance on male and female usage. With Making Out in Hindi you'll be able to express yourself when:

o Making acquaintances

o Sharing a meal

o Going out on the town

o Getting hot under the collar

o Flirting and developing a romantic relationship

o And more!

Each expression is also shown in Hindi script to enhance your experience of the language (and in a pinch, you can show the book to the person you're speaking to). Making Out In Hindi even includes occasional references to Bollywood films, so even if your travels take you no further than your cinema or TV, this is the phrase book you won't want to be without.

This book is fantastic. The name is misleading, as in fact it is more just everyday conversational Hindi rather than to do with 'making out'. Having said that there is indeed a couple of chapters on relationships and getting up close and personal.
However the most useful sections are all the rest, which allow me to punctuate my English with common Hindi colloquialisms and integrate much better with my Indian counterparts.
A fantastic book, that I've been looking for a very long time.

Some good useful phrases for socialising, emphasising colloquial Hindi. It would have been even more useful if it had more on shopping and numbers 1-1000 etc

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome 8 Dec. 2011
By hzlbluiis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My fiance's mom and dad are from india and they have always wanted me to take up there language since i am studying to be a linguist. I have a couple of other "Making out .." books and still enjoy going back to review them. I thought i would order the hindi book and see how it goes..opened it up memorized a phrase, and as soon as my fiances mom was around, i shocked her w. some hindi phrases. So i'd say it's a pretty good book as well. The front pages has the hindi alphabet with english words next to it to show you how to pronounce them. The shipping quality was awesome as well. I will def. be ordering more in other languages after i become more advanced in the one's i am currently learning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool, but not always "appropriate." 24 April 2012
By Donald A. Hays - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have a couple friends who are needed Hindi speakers, they laughed a lot when I used some of the phrases in this book. Sometimes because it was just funny to hear a white guy say them, and other times because they would never have said things that way.

This book is good for learning certain phrases. But some of the phrases, I'm told, are not always in mood appropriate.

This book does teach you a lot of informal phrases, however. So if that is your goal, this book will help you achieve it.The book is physically quite small, so it's easy to carry around.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good starter guide but not that much about making out 3 Aug. 2015
By Honest Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Its a good basic starter guide to learn Hindi but if you are looking for serious making out phrases then this is not for you.
