Beginner Hindi #003 – Consonants – Part 2 (July 3, 2007) (sound level needs to be increased)

Beginner Hindi #004 – Consonants – Part 3 (July 4, 2007) (sound level needs to be increased)

 

This reminds me of a project that I started on last year, but have not completed.  A Hindi letter and sound quiz program.  It randomly chooses between 6 vowels and three different speakers.  It shows the speaker and plays the sound,  the learner has to choose from among the 6 letters.

What I want to do is to create a library of speakers saying each of these 6 vowels:

अ आ इ ई उ ऊ

The program should introduce the first two: अ and आ.

Then quiz the user on these two.  When the user can get each one right 5 times in a row without getting it wrong, then introduce the next two:

इ ई

Quiz on these two by themselves.  After they get them right 5 times in a row without getting it wrong, then quiz them a few times on a combination of these four.

Continue likewise with उ ऊ

Then introduce the first two consonants क  and ख.  Have the user get each of these right 5 times in a row.  Then introduce how the letters go together with the vowels.  क् + आ = का, etc.  I think this should be a top priority getting this functionality on the site.  Once people understand all the letters, then it will be much easier for them to learn.
