Phrasebook (India)

India has the world’s second highest number of languages, with 23 official languages and many more unofficial languages and dialects. Hindi is spoken widely across many regions and so we’ve included some basic vocabulary and phrases here for you to practice before you go. We have added space at the end for you to write down any other words you may need; ask your National Escort or Local Guide for a word and then write it down and you are set to go.

For each word or phrase we have given the English followed by the phonetic version in Hindi that should make it easier for you to pronounce.
