It is easy to use and, as you continue to use it, it will adapt to your writing style.

How does lipik.in work?
As you type, suggested words will appear on the screen which you can easily select to compose correct sentences. lipik.in will learn from your style of writing over time and tailor its suggestions. You do not need to install any new software and if you create an account with us, you can save your documents online for free and easiy access them from any computer connected to the internet.

Comparing Some Hindi Books and Sites

A Door Into Hindi http://taj.chass.ncsu...­

WEBSITE: Excellent site: coordinated w/ Teach Yourself Hindi, quality sets and camera work. FREE. Covers first year very well. Better than most of the books or CDs out there--the ones you pay for.

WEBSITE: HINDI BOLO Has higher level material--and a LOT more fun stuff--cartoons, songs with translations and info, backup--will have podcasts. VERY, VERY GOOD. http://hindiboloblog....­

Book & CD Teach-Yourself -Hindi The best--at least for a book and grammar--sets the standard, though it moves very fast.

DVD: Rosetta Stone: Good approach. Pretty expensive. I think it is worth it.

CD: Pimsleur: Sorry, I don’t think much of this set. It is quite costly and the reverse of the Teach-Your-Self series, which move very fast. Maybe too fast, but how much can you fault Teach-UR-S for giving you too much? Pimsleur is...slow. They spend a lot of time on pronunciation, which perhaps they should, but if you are selling CD’s to grownups, can’t one go over things over and over and imitate by oneself? By the 13th CD we have “Aap kahan ja rahe hain” By the 16th CD, the Pimsleur program tackles the devanagari alphabet at the end and is up to “Listen and repeat--’chaa--chhaa’ “or “try to read no 5: ‘dhancha’ “

I don't use iTunes normally because I'm not really a Mac-head, but today at work I searched for "Hindi" in the iTunes Store and came across a number of podcasts, including this one:

Learn Hindi From Bollywood Films:
http://itunes.apple.c...­

It's an informal way of learning Hindi, via famous dialogues from Bollywood films, old and new. It won't substitute for more formal instruction but it is a nice addition to the resources. At the very least you will be able to reproduce the famous dialogue from Sholay on demand :)

Not yet a Hindi resource but it does look promising:

A few more resources I've come across:

A Door Into Hindi: http://taj.chass.ncsu...­
A very comprehensive site. Free.

iTalki.com: http://www.italki.com...­
One-on-one online language lessons with a real human being. Various prices.

SunoSunao: http://www.sunosunao....­
Seems to be focused mainly on kids, but for absolute beginners this may be just the ticket. Free to try, or $69/year (although they seem to have a half-price sale on now).

Learning Hindi: http://www.learning-h...­
Started by George Stone in 2010 as an online diary of his own adventures learning the language, this has grown into a great website. Free.

I Speak Hindi: http://www.ispeakhind...­
Learn Hindi through a podcast, with more than 500 online so far. Free.
