Your introduction in Marathi…….

speak marathi language free how to name place like

 The first chapter was about learning ” I ” and  ” My ” of Marathi. I assume that you know how to  tell your name and you know the difference between माझा , माझी &  माझे. Now I want you to learn a few more words. Words or rather verbs which will help you to explain something more about you. 

Learn “How do you give your introduction in Marathi”. This introduction is nothing but answers of :

  1. What is your name ?
  2. What do you do ?
  3. Where do live ?
  4. What do you learn ?
  5. What do you speak ?
  6. Where do you work ?

Answers of all these questions will form your first ever introduction in Marathi.

Let us start

माझे नाव बराक ओबामा आहे.

(Maze naav Barak Obama ahe)

मेरा नाम बराक ओबामा है |  My name is Barack Obama

मी डॉक्टर आहे.

(Mi Doctor ahe)    

मै डॉक्टर हूँ | I am a doctor.

माझा फोन नंबर ५५६६२२ आहे.

(Maza phone number 556622 ahe) 

मेरा फोन नंबर ५५२२६६ है | My phone number is 556622

मी TCS मध्ये काम करतो .

(Mee TCS madhe kam karto )

मै TCS मे काम करता हूँ | I work in TCS.

मी मुंबईला राहतो.

(Mee Mumbai la rahato) 

मै मुंबई मे रहता हूँ |  I live in Mumbai.

मी मराठी शिकतो.

(Mee  marathi shikto)   

मै मराठी सीखता हूँ |  I learn Marathi

मी हिंदी बोलतो .

(Mee  hindi  bolto)   

मै हिंदी बोलता हूँ | I speak Hindi.


Is this getting too big to digest ?

Worry not. Don’t memorize . Just read them once and observe its similarity with Hindi sentences .

We can actually say that Hindi and Marathi are daughters of Sanskrit. So it is quite natural for these two sisters to look similar.Hindi almost exhibits 1 : 1 correspondence with Marathi. As  I have been repeatedly telling, Marathi words when twisted a little become Hindi words and vice-versa. “बोलतो”  is बोलता हूँ ”  and “राहतो”  is “रहता हूँ”.  That is why Marathi is easiest language to learn if you know Hindi.

In Marathi, there is a difference when a lady speaks  and when a gentleman speaks. Unlike English, you can actually find out the gender of the author whom you are reading. Verbs slightly modify themselves to suit to the gender. Same is the case in Hindi. See the picture below. It is all self-explanatory.



As the picture tells us, the suffix of the verb is different for masculine and feminine gender. For masculine: all verbs in present tense end with “तो”  and for feminine: all verbs  end with “ते”.

Lets have a quick recap of  what we just read:

You learned 5 new verbs in Marathi. 1)Live 2)Speak 3)Learn 4) Work  and 5) Is (be verb)

and you learned how to use these verbs to give your first ever introduction in Marathi .

So , before closing this page and going to surf other not-so-important websites please take a quiz and solve exercises . This will help to grasp what you just read so the  hard-work of  last 10 minutes does not go waste.

  10. N Vivek Iyer says:

    Amazing website sir.. having been in Mumbai for a while now, I can understand Marathi.. but wasn’t very sure when it came to conversing.. this is surely a very simple and effective way to learn.. in fact.. such websites for all Indian languages will help overcome the language barrier that we face when travelling through our own country. Kudos!!

  25. Vijay says:

  26. Ram says:

    I have a doubt.
    In the exercises it says “maaze naav sachin aahe”. Isn’t mera = maaza? So shouldn’t it be “maaza naav sachin aahe”?

    • Akshay says:

      mera is maaza
      in Marathi we say mere naam that is maaze naav .

      • ravi says:

        please translate this in Marathi

        my name is ravi
        I lives in Varanasi
        I came from Varanasi
        I completed my graduation from Allahabad university and post graduation from bhu
        presently I am working as teacher at chs , which is a part of bhu.

        • Akshay says:

          Hi Ravi,
          The first two sentence you should be able to translate on your own after reading first two lessons. The other two I am translating for you.
          I came from varanasi = मी वाराणसी चा आहे. (It is like I am of Varanasi)
          I completed my graduation from Allahabad university and post graduation from bhu =
          presently I am working as teacher at chs , which is a part of bhu. मी माझे graduation अलाहाबाद विद्यापीठातून केले आणि post graduation बी एच यु मधून . सध्या मी सी एच एस मध्ये शिक्षक म्हणून काम करतो आहे.

  27. Hemlata Tiwari says:

  30. Anil Kumar Mishra says:

    A fantastic site. Today is my first day of tutorial and I thoroughly enjoyed and mastered the lesson. Thanks a lot……

  31. Zaid says:

    मी मागर्पत्ता मध्य काम करतो 😉

  32. Ajay says:

    maaza nav Ajay aahe
    Me pune-la madhe raahto
    me marthi sikhto
    me engineer aahe
    me hindi bolto

    marathi sikhto (ke liye) ek numbe site aaye,

  33. Amit Choudhary says:

    This is a wonderful site and a lot of effort must have gone in to make it. Really appreciate the hard work and the good intention to promote a language.

    Above all keeping it free takes the cake. My heart felt thanks to you. I am learning Marathi as Marathi literature is very rich and I was always dependent on the translated books. After this I can read them directly without depending on translations.

    I wish this site grows in the coming days and is recognized as the fountain of learning Marathi language.

  34. Deep says:

    Appreciate your hard work that you put in to create this wonderful site & helping others so that they can learn completely new language very easily.

    I have gone through the above examples but little bit confused . In example “Maze naav Barak Obama ahe “. Here you use Maze for My but in the other e.g “Maza phone number 556622 ahe “. Here you use Maza for My Phone no.

    Where to use Maze & Maza

  35. RUPAM says:

    nice work done…helping me a lot to learn marathi…love the language !!!

  36. Rajan says:

    Good it is helping a lot to learn marathi

  37. Ram says:

    We said “maazaa naav gabbar aahe” initially.
    But here it says “maaze naav baraak obaamaa aahe”.

    Why “maaze” in this case, even though the usage is in the same sense?

    Thanks for this wonderful site—I love the language and I am eager to learn it!

  38. Ram says:

    Ooops! My mistake! It does say “maaze naav” in the previous lesson. Sorry!

  39. back pain says:

    Thanks for introducing me to a very fine Marathi. Now I can say to my friend Mee Marathi Shiktho !!!

  40. RAJ says:

    Dear Akshay,
    As in someones reply , you have mentioned that the sufffix -la means “to”.
    Then what does ” ME MUMBAILA RAHTO ” mean.
    please reply

    • Akshay says:

      Hi Raj,

      English and Marathi do not hold one is to one correspondence.So,it is not always that “to” of English is “la” of Marathi.There are no rules,it is only a way of teaching.


  41. biswajayee says:

    Wonderful website. I have trying with a few books. It was really very difficult. I wish we had more akshays in all languages who take such a pain to make the language learning so much easier…..

  42. Godwin says:

    Hi Akshay,
    My Marathi friend says if I have to say ‘I live in Mumbai’ it needs to be:
    Mee Mumbait Rahto
    rather than: Mee Mumbaila Rahto, which according to him mean I live AT Mumbai which is ofcourse grammatically wrong.

    Please clarify.

    • Akshay says:

      Hi Godwin,

      First, Mi Mumbai la rahato doesn’t translate to I live AT Mumbai.Do not go by word to word translation.

      Secondly, Mee Mumbait Rahto and Mumbai la Rahto both sentences are correct and they both mean ” I live in Mumbai”. Their usage depends on the situation.
      If you are Delhi and want to tell someone that you live in Mumbai, You will say : Mee Mumbai la Rahto
      If you are Mumbai and want to tell someone that you live in Mumbai then you can say : Mee Mumbait Rahto.

      Hope I cleared your doubt.

  43. satish says:

  48. Anonymous says:

    wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. its great. its easy way to learn marathi

  49. Isha says:

    Awesome method. I wanted something which can help me learn Marathi with basics and not just big flashy list of words which I couldn’t frame into a sentence. Hope to Learn Marathi in 30 days! Thanks!

  50. Srinivas says:

    First of all, I appreciate your efforts. It is very friendly, the examples are very good.
    One problem as I feel is, in Quiz, it is not clear who is the gender to fill the blank. For example “मी TOI मध्ये ______________.(work)”, we don’t know who is this party in terms of gender. As a visitor I may be girl or a boy so you have to mention that it is related to which gender or you have to accept the answer for “काम करतो” [Male] or “काम करते” [Female].

    Please let me know your views.
