I'm also looking forward to using the Hindi course - and communicating with others who are doing the same! I'm impressed by what I've seen so far and am working my way VERY SLOWLY through the beginning lesson. I once knew the devenagri alphabet but have forgotten all that I ever knew. Hope it'll come back. Namaste!

Re: Welcome and a question about devanagari script

I have a question about the first lesson and the devanagari script. The directions seem to be different from the example given for the word HINDI. Since the "I" comes before the consonant even though it is pronounced AFTER the consonant, shouldn't the first two letters go like this: हि, then have the rest, which makes sense, follow?

I do remember those vowel marks from my now forgotten hindi lessons...don't want to get it all wrong.
