Learning Hindi Swar (vowels) is easier than English vowels. In English, the pronunciation of a word changes depending on the placement of vowel in a word. However, in Hindi, the pronunciation of the vowel remains the same irrespective of its position in a Hindi word. Let your child learn the interesting Hindi language with effective learning resources such as Hindi worksheets for Kindergarten, Hindi vowels worksheets for Grade 1, etc.
What is Hindi Swar (Vowels)?
There are 52 letters in the Hindi language. In the 52 letters, 36 are Hindi consonants and 16 are Hindi vowels. Your child can easily learn the Hindi consonants and vowels through classroom lectures, Hindi Swar worksheets, and other study materials.
Below are some of the commonly used Hindi vowels that your child needs to know:
अआइईए ऐओ औअं अः
Why the knowledge of Hindi vowels is important?
Here are two key benefits of learning Hindi vowels for your child:
- Right meaning with the right matras
Understanding how to use the right matra is necessary for the correct use of Swar in Hindi. If you use the ‘O ki matra’ instead of ‘Ow ki matra’, the meaning of the word changes. To enable your child to understand the correct matras for word formation, there are free printable Hindi worksheets for Kindergarten available online. These worksheets allow your child to learn and master one matra at a time.
अ a ki matra for ‘accha’ (meaning Good/Okay)
आ aa ki matra for aam (meaning Mango)
इ i ki matra for imli (meaning Tamarind)
ई ee ki matra eenaam (meaning Prize)
- Conversation skills
With a good grasp of the Hindi vowels, your child can communicate fluently in Hindi. While using Hindi vowels worksheets to practise writing, your child can read out the letter and practise the correct sound of each vowel.
For example, let’s take two words formed from using the Hindi vowels ‘e’ and ‘ai’ in a conversation.
ए – ek (meaning ‘One’)
ऐ – ainak (meaning ‘Spectacles’)
If your child confuses the use of ‘e’ with ‘ai’ then the Hindi conversation of your child won’t be clear. Your child may end up using ‘aik’ for ‘One’ and ‘enak’ for ‘Spectacles’ in conversation. That’s why, worksheets are useful in teaching Hindi vowels. Worksheets carry colourful pictures that allows your child to visually connect a vowel to an object. Also, you can correct your child calmly if you find mistakes in the sound of the vowel during your child’s reading practice.
To conclude, learning Hindi vowels (Swar) is necessary for using the Hindi language correctly. You can simplify the learning process for your child with free downloadable Hindi vowel worksheets that are created by Hindi experts.
