Understanding and speaking Hindi are two different things. In this class students will build their vocabulary and formulate sentences to have conversations in Hindi.
Having fun is really important. Especially now, during these trying times. The more fun the students have, the more they’ll learn and retain.
Spoken Hindi; Not Reading and Writing
Our classes are intended for the South Asian diaspora with an emphasis on speaking – not reading/writing.
What Makes Us Unique?
Fun and engaging. Fun is the highest priority. If the students aren’t having fun, they won’t learn and it could stifle their interest.
Relatable. I faced the same challenges in learning Hindi that my students do.
Holistic. In addition to learning Hindi, the lessons incorporate other important skills i.e. active listening, presenting to others, creativity, drawing insight.
Personalized reinforcement. We create audio tools – many of which are personalized for each student – so that they can practice at home.
About Your Teacher
I grew up in Southern California in a household where my parents spoke Hindi and I responded in English. But I had a standing “date night” with my mom including: parantha + a Hindi movie. I actively engaged with the language. I’d pause the movie and ask about words that I didn’t understand, context, and pronunciation. And I kept getting better and better.
The best way to describe my Hindi-speaking ability is, last year I went to Mumbai > went shopping ALONE > and totally crushed it. Every dukaan wallah would ask me where I was from and I said, “Delhi”. Their response? “We can tell because you don’t speak Mumbai wallah Hindi.” They never suspected I wasn’t from India. #BrushYaShouldersOff.
I’ve been a Bollywood and Bhangra choreographer, dancer, and teacher all my life – another area where I have continuously applied Hindi (and Punjabi) language skills.
Thank you for your interest in Hinglish! I hope to see you in class!

What is the teaching style? Playful, cheerful, encouraging. The top priority is fun; fun = children want to keep coming back = sustained interest in learning the language and culture.
Is this live or pre-recorded?
Live; and the children will be able to see and interact with each other — important for their social-emotional development.
Are any materials provided? Yes. We provide materials so that each student can practice outside of class.
What happens if we miss a class? It’s recorded and we’ll send you the link, so you can make up the class on your own.
I don’t know Hindi, so how can I help my kids? We’re going to be doing a lot of vocab that you can easily incorporate into home life and practice together. Your kids will teach you! This is a GREAT way to get grandparents, aunts, uncles who sometimes don’t know what to say to kids over the phone/Facetime, involved.
“You are so patient with the children. My son KEEPS singing songs from class. I’m so happy!”
“Samta, you rock! You are 10x better than her teachers! Patient, thoughtful, and super engaging!”
“Thanks for the class! She had a blast. Still teaching her the flute dance.”
