Swaagat hai! This group is for increasing and practicing our Hindi language skills. It isn't a social group per se... so don't expect lots of fancy events! We concentrate on learning and practicing the language. But of course, we are social in the process. We have fun doing it and meet good people. :-)
We are friendly and informal, and we speak some English too. We meet in different parts of Los Angeles.
If you are advanced/fluent in Hindi you are welcome, just be patient with us who are beginners/intermediate. Perhaps you can give us some friendly tips and corrections. if you are a beginner... Taking beginner lessons at home or with a teacher is important. And then you can practice with us. Our meetings are not actual lessons, although we do often briefly go over some kind of grammar, Hindi resources, or vocabulary.
Meetings are about half desis & half people from all over the globe wanting to learn or practice their Hindi. Each meeting is different, we have different levels coming.
If you would like to host a meeting at your home, please let me know.
Look for a possible Devanagari study group starting soon. If you are interested in Anshu's beautiful and helpful Hindi script flash cards with script letters and sample phrases, please let me know.
Anshu Jain is an experienced Hindi teacher. She teaches summer classes at UCLA. She's a wonderful teacher and person! For those of us that want lessons she has online lessons but also occasionally offers live group classes in Cerritos. Once in a rare while, she will make it up to LA and we'll have a meeting with her. We will occasionally have a meeting down in Artesia when she can make it. http://www.ilearnhindi.org

Mitta Vicki Wise I am an intermediate Hindi speaker, so I'm glad that Anshu and Zubin are able to help. I go to India every year and sometimes Nepal and am involved in India with an ashram. That's why I am so committed to learning Hindi. I also offer private and professional guided meditation journeys, reflexology, essential oil, toxin free lifestyle, and empowerment coaching sessions. As well as various workshops, and events, businesses and parties.
