It depends on what level of language you would like to achieve.
Are you aiming for eventual fluency in hindi, or to handle basic conversations, phrases etc?

For basics I would really recommend using Memrise, as it covers everything you need as a beginner (I'm not sure how many courses are available for Hindi though).

Good luck

Most people learn a language with a view to speaking to other people in that language rather than to reading things written in the language, so phrases which are useful in social interaction are a good start.

Hello, how are you, my name is, goodbye, thank you, please, words like that.

Choose a small number of words and listen to how they are pronounced online so that your pronunciation is good.

What brought you to choose Hindi?

I want to be fluent in it but I don’t care about learning how to write In hindi because ik it’s not like the English alphabet.
Thanks

Do you have some good learning materials? If you are keen, you could start to understand some of the grammar at this point.

If you're learning a modern language then definitely learn things that you would actually use in everyday speech, like greetings, asking questions, colours, numbers etc.
The stark difference between modern and ancient languages is honestly hilarious. In our first spanish and french classes (and hindi which I also speak) it'd always be that sort of thing, and then in Latin and Greek our first words would be 'master', 'slave', 'to guard', 'to kill', 'to chase'...

No need to be sorry x

I don't completely disagree with you on that, but I think it depends on the person and the crowd.

Yeah you’re right, I’ve learnt greetings and stuff like thank you, sorry, yes, no etc.
