    be careful if you are learning hindi, not english

    I am sure this is a great source for those who speak Hindi and want to learn English, but it makes it difficult if you are learning it the other way around. You definitely can't just look up any English word you want to find the translation, you have to know what the Hindi at least sounds like and try and find it with their alphabet.
