Understanding and speaking Hindi are two different things. In this class students will build their vocabulary and formulate sentences to have conversations in Hindi.

Fun + No Pressure
I create a cheerful and encouraging class environment. Given how much the world has changed recently and the huge impact of the pandemic on adolescents and teens, the least we can do is create a space that is ripe for learning but also laid back and fun.

Ditch the Devanagari…for now
For most of our students, learning to speak is more important than learning how to read and write Hindi. Plus, learning to read and write is MUCH easier once you’ve learned to speak. Why? Because Hindi has many letters and sounds that don’t exist in English.
About Your Teacher
I think one of the things that makes my classes unique is that I relate to my students. Like them I grew up here in the US (Orange County, California) – balancing two cultures, 2 languages and Eastern and Western values.
And that relatability comes through in how I teach. More about me and how I started Virtual PreSkool, here.
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.”
