Learn Sanskrit

Learn Sanskrit in India in-person, or online

Found in the scripture of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, this classical language is one of the oldest known languages in the world. It is also one of the 22 official languages of India.

Learning Sanskrit can help you understand the etymology of many Hindustani words, as well as understanding ancient Sanskrit texts, shlokas, and other Sanskrit words in their true context. It is also a very systematic and syntactic language and the grammar of the language serves as a master template for most Indian [and a few European] languages. Above all learning Sanskrit is fun.

At Rosemounts we offer a rare opportunity to master this very important and rich language. Our Sanskrit courses are carefully crafted to get you speaking, reading, and writing Sanskrit with ease and confidence.
