Consonants in Hindi

Welcome to this free less on Consonants in Hindi!

There are 33 consonants in the Hindi Language. The first step to learn any language is to start with the alphabet, similarly in Hindi too, we will start with the basics.

Consonants and Vowels are the most basic things in the Hindi language. In this Free lesson, we will introduce you to the Hindi Consonants. For your better understanding, we have also added one example with each consonant.

You will notice that ङ and ञ do not have any examples, this is because these two letters although part of the Devanagari script are not part of any Hindi words. They are used in other languages such as Sanskrit and Marathi, which are also written in the Devanagari script.
