Hi everyone, I’m a undergrad student and I’m trying to learn Urdu for a research project but I haven’t been able to find much online learning materials in regards to Urdu grammar. Nevertheless I did manage to come up with a couple of verbs to get an idea of Urdu grammar. My original goal was to translate the English sentences below into Urdu so I can so how Urdu grammar patterns work however because a lack of online learning material I only managed to translate some of the verbs. I was hoping the you all here could help me translate these sentences properly into Urdu since you all are fluent in English and Urdu. The main thing I’m interested in is the verbs. I am able to understand Hindi at a basic level and I have heard that Urdu is a bit similar to Hindi. So, if you don’t want to translate the entire thing, then the verbs alone will suffice. But please type them in the Nastaliq script if possible. otherwise naskh is fine. Well, here goes. [FONT=Wingdings]J[/FONT]
