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:)

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!

My kids ( 10 & 12 yrs old) started Hindi Lessons with Prajakta in July. My kids started with Prajakta as 100% non-hindi speakers. Our goal for them is to be able to speak conversational hindi. They have had 11 lessons so far with Prajakta and they are enjoying learning hindi. Prajakta makes the class fun and I always hear the kids laughing and giggling in their class. Prajakta has a good structure of teaching vocab and grammar and also reviews/tests them on knowledge from the last class, which makes them practice their Hindi in the week. If you are looking for a great Hindi teacher, I highly recommend Prajakta.

Prajakta is probably one of the most dynamic professors
that I have had the privilege of knowing! Her ability to convey to me the Hindi language in a manner that I do not feel intimated means a great deal. As a matter of fact, her sense of humor allows me to make mistakes, recover, and have the confidence to learn more of the language. I will, no doubt, continue with my learning experience. What a pleasure!

Ms Prajakta is a nice teacher. She taught my son Hindi from the basics. He is able to speak full sentences and name things in Hindi. One suggestion for Ms Prajakta is to talk to her students for 5 mins in her first class so that they get familiar with the teacher which will make them more comfortable. Not all kids are alike and for reserved kids to start talking to the teacher in the first class is bit challenging. Thanks for the time and effort.

I was seeking an instructor to help me with conversational Hindi— even though my name is India, I am not fluent in Hindi (yet). Prajakta is a patient and wonderful instructor so far, I look forward to being able to talk with my husband's family soon! I would highly recommend her classes for a native English speaking looking to learn conversational Hindi.

I was looking for a tutor to help me learn conversational Hindi so that I am able to communicate with my partner's family, as they only speak Hindi. My native tongues are English and Russian and I did not speak any Hindi prior to seeking a tutor, aside from a few words retained from failed attempts at learning Hindi through Duolingo. After just four lessons with Prajakta, I am already seeing progress and am able to say basic phrases to practice with my partner. Prajakta is excellent at explaining the grammatical concepts and conjugation so that I can understand them properly to build sentences on my own rather than strictly memorizing, and is patient when I ask questions or struggle. She is also great at providing the proper phonetic pronunciation using English letters, as I mentioned I would prefer to focus my efforts on learning to speak and understand rather than read and write in Hindi. I also like that she asks me what phrases I'd like to learn as well as giving her own suggestions, so that it is more applicable to what I'd like to know how to say in conversations with my partner's family. All in all I am very impressed with Prajakta's ability to teach Hindi to beginners like myself and tailor lessons to each student's needs and preferences and would highly recommend her as a Hindi tutor!

I have been studying with Prajakta for 3months now once per week. My HIndi was basic words I strung together in my own way. Prajakta has been patient with me, trying to undo years of bad Hindi is not an easy task! I can now form simple sentences correctly, ask simple questions and I am enjoying all that I am learning. Her lessons are always fun and challanging for me. I dont feel embarassed if I make a mistake, she explains why my answer is incorrect until I understand it:) I look forward to one day being able to have a small converstaion in Hindi!

Prajakta has been wonderful in my process of learning Hindi. I had some previous vocabulary knowledge, but was unable to form sentences and have a basic conversation. She has been welcoming of my blunders and politely corrects me and explains why I have it incorrect. I have had four lessons which are well planned and meaningful. I will definitely sign up for another group of sessions.

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!

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.

Prajakta is a great instructor and I'm enjoying my Hindi lessons with her.

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.

Transitioning to Teaching Language Online (TTLO)
Jul 2018

CARLA (Center for Advanced Research on Language Aquisition) University of Minnesota Startalk

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.
