How learning online works with Berlitz

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

The short answer to this question is yes! Hindi and Urdu are variations of the same language, known as “Hindustani”. A speaker of Urdu and a speaker of Hindi would be able to have a conversation and understand each other, therefore are mutually intelligible.

However, each language has its own separate writing script, which means a Hindi speaker reading Urdu wouldn’t understand the words if they didn’t know Urdu script - and vice versa.
