I think enough of the serious discussion about grammar. :) :) 
Let's start with simple sentences. Before starting I want to clarify few things.

1) Examples given below follow the rules we have discussed so far. So grammar is not explained again. I would request you to read each sentence carefully and identify how the form of particular word or verb is created.

2) Wherever new concept or exception is introduced, I will try to explain it there.

3) Please note the Marathi translation may not be exact word-to-word translation.
e.g. when asking about someone’s height in English we say  “How long are you?“ but Marathi sentence will be similar to asking “What is your height”.
So you should sense the difference.

4) You know that form of verb changes depending on gender and multiplicity.
So wherever applicable I have mentioned gender in brackets followed by corresponding version of sentence.

5) Because of British rule in India, English is learned and used widely throughout India. So use of English words is quite common. In many cases,  English words are natural choice than original Marathi words !!

6) In Marathi to say something with respect, the sentence is formed using plural.
In English when telling about a friend you will say ,"He goes to work". While speaking about and elderly person with respect you will still say "He goes to work". But in Marathi second sentence (with respect) will formed like saying "They go to work".
To Indicate this I have marked such sentence as "To Man" or "To Lady". So these are "with respect" versions. 

Listen below given sentences online at

So below I have given few sentences which will answer questions likem How to welcome guests in Marathi", "How to speak with guests in Marathi" etc.

Let’s start

    2. Thanks for replying.I found this on another post of yours:
      In Marathi we did not write "माझा नाव". Instead of "माझा" we used "माझं".
      This is because, In Marathi, there is third gender नपुसकलिंग. Like in English we have neuter gender.
