Bluejay Teach Yourself Hindi aims at helping a learner teach oneself Hindi step-by-step, moving slowly and gradually from the very basic to somewhat complex sentence structures. Learning of the Hindi script is advised. However, with Bluejay Teach Yourself Hindi, it is not a necessity. While the book is primarily designed to cater to the needs of elementary students, it will serve as a good guide for those who have already learnt the basics but tend to falter in speech or writing because of uncertainties. The book could be profitably used by teachers engaged in teaching Hindi as a foreign language at various language schools and Hindi departments at various universities or colleges.
