This series is designed to help you learn the basic vocabulary of Hindi. It is based on the vocabulary introduced in Teach Yourself Hindi; but can be used independently of any book, and should be useful for anyone beginning to learn Hindi. We give the Hindi equivalents for common English words and expressions, show how they can be used in context, and drill some of them. The idea is simply to make the words come alive as you hear them pronounced; you’ll also pick up some useful phrases, and reading the words on screen will help you develop your recognition of the Hindi script. Occasionally we throw in a little conversation or a little grammar. Just listen and absorb; pause the recording if you want to repeat something, or to jump in with the appropriate Hindi word before you hear it!
The speakers here are Rupert Snell and Neha Ladha. Transcripts for each glossary can be downloaded at glossaries.hindiurduflagship.org

Best way to learn Hindi! Couldn’t recommend it more

I’ve looked at Hindi books, tried immersion without knowing much vocabulary, listened to Hindi videos on YouTube/hindipod101 - none of them have really gotten anywhere in learning to speak Hindi. This podcast is amazing - Each glossary introduces a word into a sentence, repeats that word/sentence and shows you the sentence structure through example. You also learn grammar by hearing the way the speaker changes words for plurals - a lot easier than trying to learn it from a book! The sentence structure is easily replicable - so as you learn new words, you can simply switch them out with the sentences you already know. The repetition also helps you to remember things - it’s not just say one word and move onto the next (which imo is the best thing about this). Hindi has masculine and feminine words too, and from episode one you start to understand how that affects the rest of the sentence without knowing the rules directly. Fantastic!
