I took my first lesson with Prajakta and it was awesome! She is very thorough easy to understand and has a lot of patience to work with the older student. Helps you to understand a day-to-day conversation and not just throw words at you. Look forward to my next lesson
Ben & Lucas D.
Prajakta is very good at starting with the basic with my children. She is concerned if they are understanding and having a good time (which is difficult to do with a 5 & 6 year old). We will definitely be continuing with Prajakta throughout our Hindi speaking journey!

My 6 year daughter had her first Hindi lesson with Ms. Prajakta today. She loved it. She is new to Hindi but eager to learn. Ms. Prajakta was extremely patient with her and gave her the time she needed to work. Pace was good and my daughter really enjoyed it. Look forward to future lessons.

Private Hindi Teacher

Hindi is the National Language Of India, most of the Indians in the USA are willing to teach their children Hindi as an foreign language . This makes me feel more patriotic to teach Hindi to our next generation children.

About Ashwini

Hindi being a National Language Of India. Most of the parents in the USA are willing to make their children Hindi literate along with communication. I take the privilege to help them to reach their goal. As Hindi is a foreign language, it will certainly help high schoolers to raise their credits.

Excellent and engaging. Had fun.

Ashwini assumed that I was married upon meeting her, and asked me when I was getting married as soon as she learned I wasn't married. She also asked where I was getting married, even though at the time I wasn't engaged. Even when I made it apparent I wasn't engaged, she continued to refer to my boyfriend as my fiance.

She would send me political things going on in India, even though I have no interest, and it has nothing to do with the lessons I was taking from her. She asked me if my boyfriend was voting, and many personal things that shouldn't be asked of a student learning Hindi.

She often moved my scheduled time around without asking, which meant that I needed to move my schedule around in order to attend her sessions.

As a teacher she was pretty good, but some things disappointed me there too. For instance, I made a sentence in which a jeweler was a woman, and she stated that can't be correct, because there are no woman jewelers. I'm a woman engineer, and it's really sad to see such a sexist thing. Even when I attempted to ask about how you would say something about a woman jeweler, she said it was impossible. Later she said nurses could only be woman.

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 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.

About Tarun

My name is Tarun B. and I am a native Hindi speaker. I have been teaching Hindi to kids and adults from last 15 years. I love teaching Hindi and try to make it fun. I teach conversational Hindi as well as reading and writing. I use storybooks, games, hands-on materials, flash cards so the students

Very good Hindi Instructor! Very patient with her students!
Yuj & Veer K.
Taruna seems very good at getting kids interested in learning. My kids had their first session yesterday and she kept the conversations a mix of Hindi and English - that probably was a big reason my kids felt comfortable and ready to continue learning with her. Also, she is pleasant and welcoming.
German C.
I've had a wonderful experience learning Hindi with Taruna. I went to classes for over a year, and learned more than I would have imagined.
She has multiple academic resources to help make learning experience easier and fun, as well as helps students practice different skills in each class.
She covers all areas (speaking, reading, listening, grammar, writing) with a well defined methodology, that help to learn gradually but steadily.

She wrote the books used for the sessions, which I find very intuitive because they grow in complexity as you read.

I also found quite helpful that she was flexible with the hours available, otherwise it would be very challenging to find a good time for the class due to my job requirements.

Thanks!

Namaste everyone

Being here from eastern India I know how difficult it is to make kids understand the value of hindi. With me I make the subject interesting and beautiful with them. I have taught hindi to various age groups here. I will teach them grammar, how to connect different words to form a sentence and various other things.

I hope I will be able to share my knowledge and experience with you all and keep my good work.

I've had about 3 lessons with Amrita so far and she's really great. Accounting topics that professors talk about in class that can be hard at times Amrita breaks down and makes it really easy to understand. She definitely knows her stuff and you can definitely depend on her to teach you and help you in every way. I highly recommend her!!! :)

Dr. Nupur is the best teacher ever, we feel lucky to have found her at takelessons.

Her background is impeccable and in addition, she is a teacher who cares. She cared about my daughter, her progress (high school, chemistry) and well-being. My daughter's progress in less than 1 month was amazing: she went from 'we're a bit concerned for your grade' to the point she was helping others in class.

Dr. Nupur is the kind of teacher you wish your kids to have. I recommend her highly.

I aced my MCATs. Thank you Dr. Pande.

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

Hindi Classes Near You

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. 

Reasons to Learn to Speak Hindi

For some, intrigue into the Hindi language begins with Bollywood (Indian film) fandom and a disdain for subtitles. Many become interested in Hindi through regular yoga practice or come to it in their love of Indian cuisine. Others choose to learn Hindi to get in touch with their heritage or converse with new in-laws.

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

In intermediate lessons, you'll build upon the basics so you can advance to the next level. You’ll gain a firm grasp on Hindi and be able to hold your own in casual conversations. Lesson topics may include the following:

  • 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. The Foreign Service Institute estimates that students need 44 weeks (1,100 hours) of deliberate study time to master Hindi. But don't let this intimidate you! With a private tutor, you'll overcome challenges quickly while staying motivated and focused.

Finding a Hindi Teacher Near You
