I am an Indian. I am on edufire to teach Hindi and Math. I am experienced in teaching Hindi to people from all over the world. I have also done podcast for my website and blog (www.hindiclassroom.com) or (speakhindi.wordpress.com).
I would like to share views to benefits the English speakers who visit India on vacation or for a business visit. If one know even basic Hindi before coming to India, It will save a lot of your time. You don't need an intrepreter then.
Once a listener to my podcasts wrote to me that he wants to visit India to watch some cricket match and would like to learn Hindi as then he can avoid using an intrepreter. People have been seen crazy for learning about India and learning Hindi.
It is very useful to learn conversational Hindi before you visit India. In India you will find some states where local people speak English like in Bangalore, kerela etc, but that counts to few percent of the total population. If you want to get rid of high prices paid by you for just going 1 km away in a rikshaw then take a conversational course for 10 days or a week atleast. Imagine just by leanring it you can not only save time but your hard earned money which you loose if you dont know much in english. It is also very important when you want to visit any historical places anywhere in India as one need to commute a lot via local buses, cabs, rikshaw etc. I will post some snaps in my future articles for sure. I will continue will this article tomorrow.
