I'm a beginner with no history of hindi and Prajakta has worked with me to tailor the classes to meet my needs. My expectations were to be somewhat conversant and to pick up on basic conversations. I'm about 1/2 way through my beginner class series and am excited to see the progress I am making. Looking forward to the second half. Prajakta has been patient and flexible. And she doesn't over correct my bad accent which i know I must have.

There are three modes of Hindi learning that are offered by me - spoken only, elementary (including foundational reading, writing, listening & speaking) and advanced (for academic enhancement of language skills).

Each class is well-structured according to individual needs and paced accordingly too. I often tell interesting facts about the language, the life of the common man speaking it and the culture of the region.

My students feel at ease and look forward to their classes because they are interesting and incorporate things that they relate to. This way Hindi literature remains contemporary and relevant to new generations of readers.

My teaching style is inviting of student participation, supportive and gentle.

About Shuchi

I offer spoken Hindi classes to navigate social and professional situations effortlessly. I recommend that you learn to read and write the language but it is not compulsory to be able to speak it, though it would help immensely with accurate pronunciation of sounds that are unique to Hindi. I use st

I am experienced to teach both written and spoken Hindi . I can make classes fun and easy going and adjust the mood based on the students interest.
While learning Hindi they can also learn about the Indian cultural and the cooking style. This can be a complete class if someone is also interested about India or if the interest is in learning only language then that can also be achieved in a very simple easy going class

Students can take lessons to learn just conversational hindi. They will be able to speak basic sentences from first lesson and in 15-20 lessons, should be able to have a good small conversation. They can learn to read and write, the way I teach students can start reading words from the very first lesson. They should be fluent reader in 15 lessons.

"I have spent a couple years trying to tackle Hindi. A language that I thought was “impossible” to learn if it wasn’t your native tongue.
However, 13 classes with Prajakta and I’m starting to do more than just grasp the language. I have never had such a good experience with a class. She makes things easy to understand, really helps you gain the confidence to speak another language. I will continue to go to Prajakta as long as she will let me. I have gained more confidence to speak to my future in-laws in Hindi as well as watch more movies with less subtitles.

If this is a language you are looking to learn, she is somebody you should let teach you. Because you will make strides in no time."

In 1947, Hindi became one of India's primary languages and is one of 23 official languages in the country. There are a total of 1,600 languages spoken around India today. In spite of being one among many, over half a billion people speak Hindi and most are native speakers. 

Along with English, Arabic, Chinese, and Spanish, Hindi is one of the world's "big five" languages. Hindi is considered fairly accessible to native English speakers because it can be written using our Latin alphabet. Most teachers however, think it's worthwhile to learn Hindi's alphabet - the Devanagari script.

With India's large population, its economy is set to become a world player. In many ways, the country already is, thanks to its global outsourcing companies. As a result, business endeavors are also a great reason to learn one of the world's most-spoken languages. Now that we've piqued your interest, keep reading to find out what you'll learn in Hindi classes near you.

What You'll Learn in Hindi Language Classes Near You

Studying with a private tutor puts you at an advantage over students in larger classes. You'll receive prompt feedback, individualized lessons, and your tutor's undivided attention. While studying Hindi, you'll learn the Devanagari script, Hindi grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. Plus, you'll receive an introduction to cultural nuances and customs.

One of the primary benefits of working with a private tutor is that you’ll learn with course materials customized to your unique needs. For example, the topics covered in Hindi classes for kids will differ from those taught in Hindi lessons for adults. Our private tutors also tailor classes to their students' individual interests and goals. 

Sample Hindi Lessons for Beginners

If you're new to Hindi or have very little experience, beginner lessons are just right for you. In these classes, everything you learn will set you up for success in higher level courses. When taking Hindi lessons for beginners, you'll receive an introduction to the following:

  • Nouns, pronouns, and postpositions
  • Adjectives and the negative case
  • Verbs and tenses
  • Sentence structure
  • Survival Phrases
  • Introduction to Devanagari script

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Hindi Lessons

  • Transitive verbs and additional tenses
  • Grammatical particles
  • Devanagari script and handwriting
  • Intermediate vocabulary
  • Intermediate conversation and forming questions
  • Pronunciation and accent reduction

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Hindi Lessons

Advanced courses are designed to help you achieve fluency. You'll greatly expand your vocabulary, improve composition and comprehension, and start conversing like a native speaker. Lesson topics at this level often include the following:

  • Urdu consonants and vocabulary commonly used in Hindi
  • Idiomatic language and colloquialisms
  • Inferences and nuance
  • Advanced conversation and composition
  • Listening comprehension
  • Cultural discussions

How long will it take to learn Hindi? It depends on the student's previous experience, study time, and frequency of lessons.

With a private tutor, you'll overcome challenges quickly while staying motivated and focused.
