"Prajakta is my Hindi teacher! I was nervous about online lessons but she is very warm and patient! The online class works very well as it’s convenient timing from your own home. The format is constant interaction, reviewing word lists or practicing typical conversation phrases and topics. Even though it was my first class I was reciting entire sentences and phrases by the end of the first hour! Prajakta Repeates each word several times so I can pick up the correct accent and is patient as i sound out words and recite them a few times. She writes words and sentences on the whiteboard for me to note down spelling. We focused on spoken Hindi and I began learning the alphabet so I can read and write. Glad I signed up and can’t wait to see how fluent I am in 3 months!"
