LESSONS ONE TO 17 CONCENTRATE ON SIMPLE CONVERSATIONS AND BASIC GRAMMATICAL CONSTRUCTIONS. LESSONS 18 TO 40 ARE DESIGNED TO ACQUAINT THE STUDENT GRADUALLY WITH MORE COMPLEX CONVERSATION AND WITH LITERARY STYLE. EACH LESSON CONTAINS PATTERN DRILLS AND TRANSLATION EXERCISES FROM HINDI INTO ENGLISH AND VICE VERSA. THE CONVERSATIONS AND PATTERN DRILLS ARE TRANSLATED INTO EQUIVALENT ENGLISH SENTENCES. HINDI-ENGLISH AND ENGLISH-HINDI GLOSSARIES ARE APPENDED. AFTER LESSON 17 THE STUDENT IS READY TO READ IN THE ORIGINAL (NAGARI) SCRIPT.
