You get to learn something new every day
Now, many people in India have studied in a Hindi medium school and have grown up talking in Hindi.You must be well versed with all the words in Hindi but translating the same word in English can be a challenging task.

A bilingual dictionary is helpful in the initial stage
When you are new to a language, it is always a better option to opt for a dictionary that helps you in understanding the word in your native language. This way you can follow the context better.
Suppose, you come across a word say “evaluate,” now when you check the meaning in an English to English dictionary you will find meanings like “form an idea of the number,” ‘assess,” etc. Did it help in making you understand the meaning of “evaluate”? Not really. Now switch to a bilingual dictionary and find the meaning. Understanding the meaning in your mother tongue language will help you remember it for a long time.
Spelling. Grammar. Pronunciation.
