Hindi: A Spoken Thesaurus

Which word is the best fit for a particular meaning and context? How do I express everyday ideas in colloquial language, avoiding the bookish style found in dictionaries? What’s the actual difference in meaning between the ‘synonyms’ that dictionaries offer? How do I build up phrases and sentences around a particular word? The Hindi Thesaurus addresses such questions in a series of lively, unscripted Hindi-medium conversations about groups of words of related meaning. Concentrating on selected mainstream words and phrases, we help you to broaden your active vocabulary by encountering styles of language appropriate for everyday speech. The conversations are between Rupert Snell (Hindi teacher and perpetual Hindi learner) and Neha Ladha (mother-tongue speaker of Hindi). Glossaries for each podcast can be read online or downloaded in PDF format.

Customer Reviews

A terrific resource for intermediate Hindi learners!

There are many useful resources, including podcasts, for beginner students of Hindi-Urdu, but few for the intermediate-level learner. This podcast helps fill that gap. A must for any serious student of Hindi. It is an outstanding podcast by one of the leaders in Hindi instruction, Rupert Snell. Thanks for this very helpful resource!
