Orient Blackswan Hindi-Angrezi-Hindi Shabdakosh [Hindi-English-Hindi Dictionary] is a learner’s dictionary of Hindi language with English help provided throughout. It is specially designed for the students of non-Hindi and English medium schools of the country.

Hindi and English languages are very important in a school curriculum across the Boards in the country. Teaching of both these languages is compulsorily included in all schools. People especially children whose mother tongue is other than Hindi and also if the medium of instruction in the school is also English, such children have often found it difficult to get the meanings and usages of Hindi words, their nuances and phrases right and thus find the learning of Hindi cumbersome as a subject. And most of the times the parents also are not able to help their children with their Hindi language problems at home.

Orient BlackSwan Hindi-English-Hindi Dictionary is specially designed for the students and parents who find learning of Hindi difficult at the school level either because of their mother tongue is a language other than Hindi and/or who have to pursue their study at the school level through the English medium but have to study Hindi as a subject.

This dictionary provides solutions to both of these kinds who find Hindi difficult at the learning level.
