Hindi language, though spoken by a large percentage of the country’s population, is still having its slackness in popularising among those who are non-Hindi speaking people and foreign nationals. Seeing the importance of the language in India as well as at international level, GOYAL Publishers & Distributors comes forward to making Hindi speaking easier than expected with the release of Aao Hindi Sikhen – Vol 1&2 including bonus audio CDs. Written by
Dr Bharat Singh and Keisuke Kato, foreword for both the volumes is written by none other than Prof Ashok Chakradhar, vice chancellor, Kendriya Hindi Sikshan Mandal, Agra.
