My friend Jessica Kumar from the Invisible India podcast has just launched her new Hindi course! Below is her story and a sample of what she offers. And don’t miss the very end for a special list of hand-picked Hindi teachers.
Why did I move to India and learn Hindi?
When I first came to India in 2006, I was enamoured with the friendliness and openness of the people of India. I quickly realized that to build deeper friendships, English wasn’t enough to get me past a certain point.
I was working for an IT company in a small North Indian town and found myself gaining speed with Hindi through an immersion program I took. I dedicated about a year and a half of full-time Hindi study along with working. Now, 16 years later, I’m just as passionate about helping others learn Hindi fluently and exploring the beauty of Indian culture.
Like Karl, I wanted to create resources to help others mitigate the mistakes I made, and share my experiences and professional background.
Aside from my podcast and YouTube channel, I have launched two online courses for beginner and intermediate Hindi Students “Hindi Hacks You Didn’t Know You Needed” and “Overcome Hindi Pronunciation Pitfalls.”
They are both self-paced courses where once you sign up, you have lifetime access to the content. They include video materials, audio files, visuals and printouts for multiple learning styles. I’m also offering personalized language coaching for those who need additional guidance.
These courses are designed for those who may be travellers to India, business people, partners of Indians, or NRIs who want to reconnect with their heritage language.
A sneak peak of my Hindi Hacks course
There are 5 verbs which I think are the foundation of the Hindi language and really important to learn right away.
Karna, lagna, aana, jaana and hona
With these 5 verbs, you can construct most sentences that will get you through the basic conversations for your first few months of Hindi learning.
Mastering these 5 will be a foundation for your language capability.

I’m also very passionate about promoting native speakers who are creating quality resources to teach others Hindi.
