!!! Let's Learn Hindi Consonants !!!
The consonants are the bricks out of which the words and sounds of a language are composed! In Hindi, we have 33 consonants, which form the basis of the language, as they combine with vowels to create words.
Since Hindi is a phonetic language, so learning the basic sounds, which are the vowels and consonants, is absolutely critical and also very effective. Once one understands the basic sounds, building upon those is quite easy, since more complex words and phrases are derived in a very systematic way by combining these basic sounds.
Of course, one could learn how to listen, understand, and speak the language without necessarily learning how to read and write the vowels and consonants – which becomes a breeze by using our Talking Board. However, even if you don’t learn how to read and write the vowels and consonants, it is preferable to at least learn how to say and pronounce them, and become familiar with their sounds, because that will help your spoken language. Therefore, it is worth investing the time to at least learn the sounds of the vowels and consonants.
This is why we have devised a 3-step learning process, which makes this task a breeze!
!!! Learning Process for Consonants !!!
Learn with Pictures!
We believe that you can easily learn the consonants by singing, using the Consonant Song that allows kids to become familiar with the order, number, and sounds of the consonants. Songs are easier to memorize, due to their rhythm, which naturally appeals to kids, helping them learn rapidly, without even realizing that they are doing so!
Then by repeating the consonants with our own daughter Urvi (who learnt using this very same system), the repetition helps kids to internalize each individual consonant sound. Plus, on seeing another child perform with them, kids come away with a feeling of “Hey, if she can do it, I can do it!” This boosts self-confidence and spurs them along the learning path.
Finally, when learning with pictures, kids get to associate the sounds with a mental image (of a fruit, or a vegetable, a tree, a plant, or an animal), which helps with retention and recall! This solidifies the learning further.
This is why we have a 3-step process for learning the alphabet – vowels and consonants.
Following this, we’ll give you a chart that you can click and print, and use as an aid when you’re not on our site, thus reinforcing memory and learning.
To top this all, we provide you our Talking Board for consonants. This Board allows kids to learn the pronunciation of the consonants, at their own pace, by clicking any consonant and hearing its sound spoken by a native Hindi speaker. The Talking Board is, thus, a fun, simple, and extremely effective way for kids to associate the right sound with each consonant, and repeat this as often as they like! This is something that slightly older kids (say 6 and above) could experiment and play with on their own, with little parental supervision. Having the letter-sound association reinforced like this, is a great way to kids to effortlessly solidify their learning of the consonants.
