I have been studying Hindi with Prajakta for less than 2 months and I have already learned a huge amount. She is a very effective teacher. As a retired professor, I especially appreciate the organization of her classes, the knowledge she brings to the table, the perfect mix of repetition, reinforcement and novelty in every class, and the way she maintains my interest (and her enthusiasm) during a whole hour. Thank you!

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!

Prajakta is a great teacher! My son has been taking Hindi lessons once a week for the last 1 year with her. Over the last year we have seem him understand pieces of our conversation and ask questions about the words he didn't understand. This is a huge step forward for him, because earlier he didn't seem interested in Hindi at all.

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.

I had my last 15th class with Prajakta-ji today and feeling sad that I have to take a break. I will really miss our classes. Not only she gave me a lot of grammar and talking practice, (much more than I hoped to get), but also her warm and motherly personality, very patient and strict too. She doesn't waste a single minute in a class for chit-chatting, she goes straight to the subject and doesn't let you get away even with slight mistakes. She will correct every single one and keep repeating the grammar rules for you until you get it. I am very happy that I was able to learn so much and very grateful to Prajakta that she was able to break my barrier to speak. Of course, one cannot learn the whole language in 15 lessons, but she covered a lot. I am hoping and intending to take more classes with Prajacta in the nearest future. And definitely, I will highly recommend her as a Hindi teacher. It is great to have a personal tutor and Prajacta is a very professional one. She herself is always well prepared and one can tell she enjoys her job. It makes her happy to see that her student is making good progress.
Thank you Prajakta-ji for your efforts, patience, and love. See you soon!

I have learned so much in just a handful of lessons! Ms. Prajakta is so patient. She is great at answering questions and clearing up pronounciation issues. I usually feel very self conscious speaking in a foreign language in front of others but I don’t feel that way with her. I am working to become fluent in Hindi since my fiancé and I live in India.

Please be advised of the following: Prajakta is an incredible Hindi instructor! I was rather apprehensive of not only taking the Hindi language but furthermore, I questioned my ability to grasp the fundamentals of the alphabet and the.structure of the sentences! Prajakta put my uneasiness at rest by using a method of ying and yang! For example, “Good, your pronounciation was very good!” “Beverly, why do we use the feminine ending? “ Well, not quite!” “Think about it!”
I love that kind of teaching. Prajakta engages in my journey of learning and that denotes a good teacher. Thank You!

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!

We had a less than satisfactory experience with Prajakta after taking several lessons for our son. She appeared vey rigid and inflexible in her teaching approach and not at all open to feedback. Rather than teaching young students a version of hindi that could be used in everyday context, she has a syllabus that consists of rote memorization of several lists of words several of which will be used extremely infrequently (I am a proficient hindi speaker and many of the words I would never use myself). Also, for some inexplicable reason she was very against using the TakeLessons classroom software which made our experience very troublesome. Seems like she does not have her hardware setup for providing lessons figured out. Our son takes lessons from few other TL teachers and never had any problems with the TL software - however, for every lesson with Prajakta we had to scramble to find alternative such as Skype, FaceTime etc leading to chaos. When sometimes there were technical issues due to the scrambling she was less than cooperative. All in all, of all the TL lessons our son is taking, this was the least favorable experience because of which we discontinued the lessons.

My 6 year old son is very resistant to Learning Hindi. Prajakta did a great job of keeping him engaged. There is a bit of writing in the lessons which required me to be part of the lesson as my son doesn't write that well yet. He learned letters, numbers, words and even sentence formation.

Prajakta is absolutely the best! I am so glad I chose her to be my teacher. I had a very short amount of time to achieve an Intermediate Mid rating on the ACTFL test and with Prajakta's help I was able to achieve it. She went above and beyond to help me, and she passed on as much knowledge as she could. She developed a custom curriculum and would send me stories and worksheets to increase my vocabulary and improve my grammar. I would highly recommend choosing her as your Hindi teacher.

Prajakta is an amazing instructor. She sends you charts, walks you through them and helps you to pronunciate correctly along the way (in a way that YOU will understand). She makes the lessons fun and not too serious. She speaks english perfectly and therefore can apply Hindi in a context if your understanding. Best Hindi teacher ever. Highly recommend!

Prajakta is a great instructor and I'm enjoying my Hindi lessons with her. I had tried to learn Hindi on my own but found it difficult because it was more about memorizing phrases than really understanding the language and structure of the sentence. Having an instructor like Prajakta has been very helpful as I can ask questions and her lessons are fun with a variety of activities to help bring everything together.

After several failed attempts to get my 5 yr daughter to speak Hindi, I looked to online classes for some help and signed up for a 5 lesson session with Prajakta.

Prajakta was always on time, and well-prepared with her lesson plan tailored to a 5 yr old. She also sent me coloring sheets and worksheets for writing practice so my daughter could stay interested and keep on practising. My daughter really enjoyed and looked forward to her classes.

These are serious lessons that include learning to read and write Hindi as well. The only note of caution I would offer to other parents is that I felt that it would have helped the pace of the lessons if my child had been slightly older and able to write better, since you do need to write down words and sentences in both Hindi and the English translation during the lesson.

All in all, I considered these sessions a good investment, because although she is still a long way from speaking comfortably in Hindi, the lessons served to kick-start her interest in learning the language. I am hoping we will be able to build on that foundation and encourage her to speak Hindi sentences more often.

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!

I really wanted to learn conversational Hindi for speaking and understanding with friends.

I've memorized the vowels and am working to memorize the consonants. She really helps to bolster Hindi vocab and stresses the importance of practice through handouts and reviewing them at the next class. Prajakta ji does a good job in trying to customize the lessons for the student's learning desires.

Primary to the course content was the necessary experience of being an online learner, which all participants gained in this completely online course. Course content focused on different facets of a successful online language course, such as creating community, national standards for course development, teacher readiness to teach online, and choosing appropriate technology tools for communicative-based activities. Participants experienced and developed a variety of online activity types (oral/written, synchronous/asynchronous) for the 3 communication modes (interpretive/interpersonal/presentational). In addition to exploring these aspects of teaching online, participants saw these concepts in action, modeled in the course itself and in a model Russian activity series. Participants created an ePortfolio with items produced in the course as a final project.
