Personalized & Interactive 1-on-1 classes
Like any language around the world, you can learn to speak Hindi only when you start practising it often. Of course, you'd need to learn the basic vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. For learning that, the ideal method is to learn directly from a teacher. Either in-person or online. If online, teachers take live classes that give live feedback. This is often regarded as the fastest way to learn to speak the basics. Simpler alternatives include watching Hindi movies, TV shows or Youtube videos with English or native language subtitles. Though this is a cost effective method, it can take a lot of time to learn the structure of the language. Instead, after learning the basics directly from a teacher, you can then rely on watching movies, TV shows etc to practise what you have learned. There are also other methods to learn Hindi, including tandem learning, where you can learn from a native Hindi speaker, while you teach your native language to your tandem learning partner. Several such services are available online. However, customized lessons taken directly by a teacher online still remain to be the most effective method.
