What is your mother tongue?

English (grew up in a Punjabi-speaking family)

Practice speaking Hindi and corrrect my grammar by learning from others. I'd also like to meet other people in the area who have similar interests.

What level is your Hindi? (Fluent, proficient, understand but can't speak, beginner)

Proficient - I can get by in conversation but grammar is definitely an issue!

Parents are from Punjab. husband from Delhi


Namaste! I started this group originally in NYC, back in 2004, eager to speak and learn Hindi. The group quickly gained momentum- I even got invited to the Meetup headquarters to speak about the group! I then moved to DC and started the group in '07.

What Amita J. is saying about this Meetup Group

Everyone I've met has been very friendly, outgoing, and interested in learning or practicing Hindi.
