About me

Choose your right tutor after a trial lesson.

I am an experienced online tutor, currently teaching at a university.

If you want to make full use of learning another language, you have to speak it. In these lessons you're going to learn how to speak Hindi in a conversation without hesitation. This is vital because by learning to take part in conversations yourself, you are going to teach yourself to respond aloud in real, spoken Hindi.

Even if you already know some Hindi, this course will be a great revision and may even teach you some things that you don't know. This course teaches you Hindi in an innovative, comprehensive learning package based on how people actually say things. Work through the lessons, listen, speak, and learn!

Qualifications & Experience

Let me share my passion for the Hindi Language with you!

I am a fully qualified and experienced Hindi Language Teacher. I have an MA in Hindi and have been teaching for 18 years.

I have 6 years experience of teaching online to US, UK, Australian and many other country's students. I have 100% positive feedback so far. Currently also teaching at a reputed company.

Teaching Approach

I teach through a virtual whiteboard where the lessons are recorded to revise any time. I add audio-visual presentations to make learning interesting.

There are many things that you can do to improve your pronunciation and your speaking skills:

Listen to spoken Hindi as often as possible. Listen to how speakers pronounce various words and phrases and "model" your pronunciation on what you hear.

Learn the phonetic alphabet. Use the phonetic alphabet page as a guide to pronouncing new words and don't forget to learn the word stress of a new word. Every Hindi word has its own stress, or intonation. Word stress is important. In fact, it is more likely that someone misunderstands you because of wrong word stress than because of the wrong pronunciation of a sound.

Work out which sounds cause you most problems in Hindi. Depending on what your first language is, you may have problems with certain sounds. For example, French speakers have difficulties with "th"; speakers of Mandarin have difficulties with "r" or "l", and Arabic speakers have difficulties with "p" and "b".

Practice the sounds you find difficult. A useful exercise is a "minimal pair" exercise. For example, if you have difficulty distinguishing between "p" and "b", try practising pairs of words which are the same except for the sound "p" and "b"

Be aware of intonation and sentence stress. Not all words in a sentence have equal stress, and generally only the "information" words (nouns and verbs) are stressed.

Learn to recognize spelling patterns. There are often many ways to pronounce a particular spelling pattern, but it certainly helps to know what the variations are.

Don't rush. If you speak too fast, the danger is that you could skip over some words, fail to pronounce them completely, or mix them up. If you speak too slowly, you might end up sounding unnatural. But it's better to speak slowly and clearly than too quickly.

Sincerity and devotion to learning a language is the keyword. Speaking the right Hindi is a task. Once there is mastery over the language and when your inner voice tells you that you were effective, this serves as a confidence booster. Continuous efforts are required when learning anything and this applies much to the Hindi language.
