Namaste friends ! These days I am teaching hindi to two students from Germany .these two students are students of Berlin University ,Germany.they are students of south asian study programme .
They came to know about me through internet.theirs name are Carolin and Shabina. however they know some Hindi .Shabina could speak better than Carolin.
As they are here just for two week so they want to learn as much as possible.mostly we are talking during the class.during our conversation they are very much interested in knowing about Indian culture such as cremation rituals and its performance.they also wanted to know how a “”DOM”” ( a cast who cremate body at the ghats) is important for Hindus rituals.
They are learning two hours per day and in this class they are reading and translating story book.some time they are also doing exercise for practice
They need a certificate for showing in the university so that they may obtain credits.I will be writing the details of hours they learnt and their performance during the class
For two weeks I am teaching Gabrila online through skype .she is my old student from the vision of India semester programme of where there be dragons.she lives in New york city in U.S.A.she wanted to continue her Hindi as she is studying international development.how ever it not my first experience.I have already taught some of my old students from vancouver Canada and states.First day I had great experience with skype as there was not any problem but one the second day there was a little problem with Internet.
Now she is taking four hrs in a week.every Friday and Saturday we meet on 7.30 pm according to India time.I have already sent some teaching stuff on her email address and which she has got the print out and we work both together.how ever i have recommend her teach yourself by rupp snellbut once she will have confidence in speaking Hindi
