Description

This Hindi book will help you learn the vocabulary you need to socialize with other young Hindi speakers and enjoy cultural attractions such as nightlife and Bollywood movies.

Making Out in Hindi is a fun, accessible guide to the contemporary Hindi language as it's spoken in real life. It's the perfect phrase book geared towards everyday interactions and includes current slang and street expressions not covered in other phrase books, accompanied by line art illustrations.

Making Out in Hindi also features a pronunciation guide, notes on the Hindi language and Indian culture, and guidance on male and female usage, so that you can learn Hindi both quickly and accurately. With this Hindi language phrasebook, you'll be able to express yourself when:

Making acquaintances
Sharing a meal
Going out on the town
Flirting and getting amorous
And more!

Each expression is also shown in Hindi script to enhance your recognition of the language (and in a pinch, you can even show the book to the person you're speaking to). Making Out in Hindi also includes occasional references to Bollywood films, so even if your travels take you no further than your art-house cinema or your TV, this is the phrase book you will want to have.
