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.
