Chalo Hindi Bolay : Learn Hindi Fun Way

"Chalo Hindi Bolay" is a DVD made for kids to teach them Hindi. It's geared towards NRI kids who need a boost to learn and speak Hindi.

The DVD has some very interesting graphics, good music and lively songs. It will definitely catch the attention of your little one.
Subtitles in English are also available.

The best part of the show is the alphabet song. It shows the alphabets, how to pronounce it and also teaches a word that starts with that alphabet.

In addition to the alphabet song, the DVD teaches the colors in Hindi. It also has a body part song and the number song.
The body part is a Hindi translation of the song "Head, shoulders, knees and toes" . It's a pretty good song, but it's very hard to identify the words that stand for each body part. It's entertaining, but does not do what it is meant to do. It would have been better if, after the song, they could have just pointed to each body part and said it's name in Hindi, so the kids could make out the words.
The number song is good too. Kids hold up the numbers from 1 to 10 and say it in Hindi.

There are Hindi translations of popular English nursery rhymes like Itsy-Bitsy spider and Twinkle twinkle little star. But we don't think a kid can understand any words out of that song that will help them learn Hindi.

They have some interesting games too, like which picture is different, what letter does these words start with etc. But they have only one game in each category. We would have preferred to see more of the games. Here, they ask the questions and then they give the answers themselves. It would be better if the kids could select the correct answer on the controller by themselves. That would help them learn better.

They do show some pictures of animlas, fruits etc during the games, but we would have liked to see a section of common Hindi words like animals, birds, fruits, places, things around the house etc., which will help the kids relate to the everyday things that they know in Hindi.

Overall, I give this DVD 3 stars out of a possible 5. It is only good for people who know some amount of Hindi already. And it doesn't teach a lot of new concepts or words, other than the alphabets, numbers and colors. But if you just want to get your kid interested in Hindi, and give them an introduction to very basic Hindi, then we would suggest that "Chalo Hindi Bolay" would be a good choice.
