· Hindi · Online Extremely fun and engaging lessons...but also very challenging! Prajakta is adaptable to my areas of concern and can quickly tell where I need more focus or less.

· Hindi · Online Prajakta approaches the lessons based on your desired level of fluency. I am interested in learning conversational Hindi first, and Prajakta has provided helpful sentences, common vocabulary, and the basics of vowels and consonants. Each lesson is varied and builds upon the last, introducing new sentences and phrases that are commonly used. She's very thorough with pronunciation and generally friendly and pleasant to learn from. Highly recommend!

· Hindi · Online Prajakta is a great instructor! I like the fact that she is tailoring my lessons to me and my skill level. I also like that she has homework assignments for me so I can keep on practicing and studying in between our lessons. She's very enjoyable to learn from and I can't wait for the next lesson!
