The Hindi language

Hindi is counted among the Indo-Aryan languages. It is spoken in most of the states of northern and central India. Hindi is closely related to the Urdu language that is primarily spoken in Pakistan. For all intents and purposes, the two languages are almost identical. The crucial difference is in the writing system. Hindi is written in Devanagari. On the other hand, Urdu uses the Arabic semiotic system. Distinctive for Hindi are the many dialects. These differ, sometimes strongly, from one another due to the country's size. Hindi is the native language of 370 million people. An additional 150 million people are proficient in Hindi as a second language. With that, Hindi is among the most spoken languages of the world. It is in second place after Chinese. So it comes before Spanish and English! And India's influence in the world is growing rapidly!
