Advantages of learning Hindi

Hindi is the national language of India and is spoken by almost half a billion people in India and in rest of the world by migrated Indians. Hindi is the second most spoken language in the world after Chinese. It allows one to communicate with a far wider variety of people in India than English which is only spoken by around five percent of the population. Hindi became the official language of India on 26th January, 1965. Hindi is an Indo-European language, of the Indo-Aryan subfamily. It derives much of its formal and technical vocabulary from Sanskrit. With independence, a common language had to be decided. The matter was put to vote and Hindi won by a single vote. Hindi, however, was only one of the many regional languages of India. Various famous epics and plays were written in the Hindi like Ramacharitamanas, Bhagvad Gita and the Mahabharata. Today, Hindi is widely spoken in almost all the states of India, especially in the states in northern and central India. Hindi is spoken exactly as it is written so it is very easy to learn and read. Hindi is normally spoken using a combination of 52 sounds, ten vowels and 40 consonants. There are 11 vowels and 36 consonants in Hindi. By the knowledge of Hindi, you can easily know about Indian culture, religion and current affairs. English also continues to be an administrative and official language of the central Government, besides Hindi. Although you may not be stuck up anywhere in the country if you are familiar with English, but it is always desirable and enjoyable to know a few words of the local language – in this case Hindi – to communicate with the common people of India.

Indo Vacations offers different courses in Hindi in association with experienced instructors in India and abroad. The courses are of different time duration that can be designed as per the interest of student / course participant and the availability of the teacher. The offered Hindi Language lessons are given by private teachers thus making the teaching sesssions as an individual one to one basis course. You are free to ask questions, take your time at the exercises and practice the sentences as long as you and your teachers are satisfied with the pronunciation. We would design the course and find the right teacher for you. Our teachers have experiences in teaching foreign students whose native language is not Hindi. We offer daily 5 hours classes which are divided in two sessions. One session takes place before Lunch and the other after lunch. We normally arrange your accommodation within 10 -15 minutes reaching time by walking to your teacher so that you both can coordinate the timings as per your convenience and you save precious time as well as money on travelling. At present we offer language courses in Jaipur, the capital of the famous colorful state of Rajasthan in India. Jaipur lies approximately 270 kms south of Delhi, capital of India. We would arrange your transfer from international Airport on nominal charges if wished so as well as would assist you for any other tour travel services needed by you. During the classes we recommend you to stay with an Indian family to experience the real Indian culture and Indian way of living. The cost of language courses will be informed to you once we have the wished dates from you as the cost of the accommodation vary season to season. The cost of the Hindi Language course with Home Stay includes the following:  5 days classes in a week (around 3.5 hours a day  with accommodation for one month at an Indian family with your own room with bath and WC, round the clock cold & warm water). This also includes breakfast, Lunch and dinner as well as Tea & coffee. Your laundry will be taken care of and use of internet at the premises itself is possible.
If you wish to take shorter course then one month, please send us your query and we would revert with the availability and applicable charges.

Namaste!

May I wish you and your family a Happy New Year! Thank you for the two pictures, they are lovely.

I had a good time in Jaipur, and your attentiveness to my needs was very efficient throughout my stay. I really enjoyed learning Hindi; the way I was taught was good, and my teacher really looked after me! As well as teaching me Hindi which was tailored to my personal needs, she also took me shopping, to the park, taught me some yoga, let me try new foods, and invited me for a meal on Christmas Day. I also enjoyed my trip to Ladli and being hennaed. The place where I stayed was lovely, and the location of it was so convenient. It was good to have the experience of living with an Indian family. All of the travel arrangements ran very smoothly.
I have attached a picture of me in my new sari!
I am already thinking about my next trip. I'm interested in returning to Rajasthan and visiting Gujarat as well.
Best wishes,
Lizzie

you goes to Mr. Sanjeev Minglani. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your very

Dear Suman, dear Sanjeev,

now I finally find some minutes to write you from Germany and to thank you again for the wonderful time I could spend in Jaipur.
Since I am back, university doesn’t allow me to enjoy any freetime. But anyway I enjoy my work. Right now we already started the preparations of my big fieldtrip and I am already counting the days until I can leave for Sri Lanka and India. It’s just three month and three days;-) But before there will be a lot to do...
But even beside my work, I found a possibility to continue (at least a bit) to learn Hindi here in Heidelberg. I am attending two hours per week a course that is called “Hindi for Anthropologists”. Right now it is just a repetition of the things I learned in Jaipur, but at least it helps me to keep things in mind:-) Further, my colleagues from India frequently check my knowledge (and have a lot of fun when I make some mistakes;-))
I should also greet you from my professor. He was really happy, that I got such excellent lessons during my trip and he was even more surprised, when I gave him your present. He really likes the pictures and they now have a special place in his office. Same with the beautiful picture you gave to me. It got a special place in my living room.
So, please say hello to everybody (to Ria, Veena, Prem, Ruci, Adi...). I miss all of you!!!

Take care & Hope to see you soon.

Best wishes,
Silke

(Uni. Heidelberg)

Lieber Sanjeev, liebe Suman, liebes Team von Indovacations,

ich möchte mich noch einmal ganz herzlich für meinen wunderschönen Aufenthalt in Jaipur bedanken! Meine Ausflüge waren immer bestens organisiert, meine Gastfamilie war einfach phantastisch und der Hindi-Kurs sehr effektiv (ich lerne jetzt fleißig zuhause weiter und stelle mir die üppigen Pflanzen der Pushpawali dabei vor...). Besten Dank auch für die vielen Geschenke zu Diwali und zum Abschied, für das unglaublich leckere Abschlußessen, für alle beantworteten interkulturellen Fragen und für Rat und Tat in allen Lebens- und Reiselagen...
Alles Gute Euch allen! Ich freue mich schon auf ein Wiedersehen!

Viele Grüße aus Bamberg,

Nicole Grom

Dear Sanjeev
 
Thank you for your email.  I had a fairly good trip home, and have been busy the last week 'catching up'!
 
I was very pleased with the classes provided by Suman.
 
I was planning on returning in October, but the weather for November seems to be much better (and nearer to February's weather), so I may return then instead.  Would you agree the weather is less hot then?

Namaste

Subject: Greetings from Germany

Hallo Sanjeev, 

Viele liebe Grüße aus Deutschland! Ich hoffe Dir und deiner Familie geht es gut. 
Es tut mir wirklich sehr leid, dass ich mich nicht mal früher gemeldet habe. Seit meiner (perfekt organisierten) Indien Reise vor einem Jahr war ich sehr beschäftigt und es ist sehr viel geschehen. 

Nach meiner Rückkehr nach NY hatte ich eine sehr erfolgreiche Fotoausstellung von meinen Indien Bildern. Dann habe ich meine Diplomarbeit über Indiens wirtschaftliche Entwicklung fertiggeschrieben und habe im Juni meinen College Diplom bekommen. Seit September wohne ich mit meiner Freundin in Berlin und studiere/arbeite hier. 


Auch wenn es schon ein Jahr her ist, muss ich mich einfach noch einmal dafür bedanken wie perfekt Indo Vacations die Reisen fuer mich und meine Familie geplant hat. Selbst in den abgelegensten Gegenden in Sikkim oder während dem Holi Fest in Varanasi habe ich mich immer sicher und gut beraten gefühlt!
Wenn Ihr Anfragen von potentiellen Kunden bekommt und eine Empfehlung braucht kannst du gerne meine Email weitergeben. 

Ansonsten hoffe ich, dass es euch in Jaipur gut geht und Ihr viele Kunden habt.
Ich vermisse vor allem das Drachensteigen in Indien. Ich habe zwar viele Drachen und auch Schnur nach Deutschland mitgenommen, aber hier gibt es niemanden der mich zu einem Kampf herausfordert :-) 

Ich hoffe, dass ich vielleicht diesen Sommer (August) mal wieder nach Indien komme, um wieder zu Fotografieren und noch mehr Hindi zu lernen. Aber ich habe noch keine genauen Pläne. Wenn es soweit ist werde ich bestimmt wieder etwas über Indo Vacations buchen. 
 
Viele Grüße und ich freue mich von Dir zu hören.

Namaste!  I'm happy to provide some feedback:

"I chose an Indo Vacations package for an intensive Hindi program after thoroughly researching several schools and travel operators in India.  My program was taught by an experienced and patient teacher who was willing to design a language program to fit my needs.  I was a guest in the home of a wonderful local family who made me feel welcome and relaxed.  The food was always delicious and the accommodations were very clean and modern.  Because of this environment, it was easy for me to concentrate on my studies and still have ample time to explore Jaipur and Rajasthan.  After a few weeks, when I had time for more exploration, Indo Vacations was able to offer me several interesting tour options that allowed me to experience more of the regional culture.  I recommend this company for anyone interested in visiting India for almost any reason (Hindi lessons, cooking classes, etc.) because of the professionalism of the staff and the care they take in ensuring everyone a memorable and rewarding trip."

- Mike L., Washington DC, USA
Namaste, sehr geehrter Herr Minglani,
........Was meinen Hindi-Kurs angeht, bin ich sehr zufrieden. Ich hoffe, dass ich
meine aufgefrischten und neu erworbenen Kenntnisse gut einsetzen kann. Ich
überlege auch, ob ich in einem oder zwei Jahren einen weiteren Aufenthalt in
Indien absolviere, um mich weiter zu qualifizieren. Dazu werde ich aber erst
einmal checken müssen, was hier in Deutschland an
Weiterbildungsmöglichkeiten in Sachen Hindi zu bekommen ist. Und dann muss
ich das auch systematisch vorbereiten.

Inhaltlich war der Sprachkurs sehr gut. Da wäre zunächst einmal das reale
Leben in einer indischen Familie, was man ja so auch nicht täglich
kennenlernt. Dann die gute Auswahl meiner Lehrer, beide sind nicht
irgendwelche Wald-und-Wiesen-Dozenten, sondern verfügen über Lehrerfahrung
und Lehrmaterial. Die Intensität war genau richtig, es war anstrengend, aber
nicht aufreibend.

Herzliche Grüße aus dem "kalten" Deutschland, hier wird es dieses Jahr
überhaupt nicht richtig Sommer.

Ihr
Nils Gajowiy

Jainism was started as a reform movement of the Brahmanic religious beliefs in the 6th century BC.

Mahavir was born in 599 BC just 50 km to the North of modern Patna near the India and Nepal border. He was about 35 years older than the Buddha and was also kind hearted towards all the living beings. His royal family was also the followers of an ascetic saint, Parvanatha, who according to Jain tradition had lived for about two hundred years. Mahavir’s life story is embellished with legends, but there is no doubt that he left his royal home for a life of the strict ascetic. He rejected the Hindu belief that the Supreme Creator had created this universe. He believed that it was infinite and eternal. More information about Jainism is available at:
