Strategy For Hindi Medium Students

Ravi further said that if you are a student of Hindi medium then you may face many types of problems. Very good study material is not available in Hindi, so you should also check your English notes.

If you do this then your work becomes even easier. If you are going to have only Hindi notes then there may be some shortage of the material. so my suggestion would be to read English notes also.

He said that if you are able to translate from English to Hindi, then you should translate the material from English into Hindi. That is, you must know good English because you get very good content in English, whereas it is a little difficult to do so in Hindi.

Therefore, all Hindi medium students should also pay attention to their English so that they can translate English contents into Hindi also.
