As this is basics of English for beginners i would start with English grammar the first topic would be "Noun". A noun is a name of a person,place,animal, or thing.It is classified into Singular(single/one} for example book, cup, chair etc and Plural {more than one} for eg books ,cups,chairs etc.for the plural of most nouns add 's'.There are many other rules to make plural like add es ,some nous have different plural forms, we learn all of them as the classes progress.

Prajakta is a very precise and concise Hindi tutor. She is punctual, thorough and detail oriented. Her method of writing out words with her students is very helpful!
Chetna
My son has been taking lessons with Prajakta for few years now and we are very happy with his progress. It’s really amazing that he can speak with almost no American accent now. He’s come a long way in his understanding of hindi since he started his lessons. She has a lot more patience then a parent would:)
Allison H.
I wanted to learn Hindi to be able to communicate in my husband's native language with him & his family. I barely knew anything when I began lessons with Prajakta and have now grown to know a lot of daily vocabulary and grammar. Continuing my lessons to be able to have full conversations! Prajakta takes the time to make sure you are understanding what she is teaching and provides a well rounded curriculum. Definitely worth trying if you are interested in learning Hindi!

"From the beginning, Micah proved to be exceptional! She was the only teacher who took the time to answer my long list of questions. She was clear and honest. Classes are planned according to your specific needs. She makes you want to learn more, motivates you and guides you in the best possible way. She also has a lot of patience and knows how to explain the lessons properly. Her teaching techniques have been very useful to improve my English pronunciation and I enjoy doing homework (cause it's fun and doesn't seem like homework at all). I highly highly recommend her!

If you're looking for the perfect English teacher online, Micah is your girl!"
