We were so engrossed in learning Hindi today, that we nearly missed one of our computer lessons... Ooops...

Both of us are learning how to speak, read and write Hindi as a side-project while we’re here. It’s not really necessary on the farm though as everyone speaks English. Where it will come in handy is when we venture out into the “real” India, the one where few people speak English. It’s tough work, especially having to learn another script but luckily Hindi characters (Devanagari script) is actually pretty easy to pick up and thanks to my trusty I-Pod we have been able to learnt to passably read it in just a few days – the only problem is we don’t understand what we’re reading...yet

  1. Sounds like you're having a fun time learning! Hope that you continue to learn quickly and that it sinks in.

    As a fellow teacher I'm glad you didn't miss your lesson. No doubt your students would have been disappointed if you hadn't turned (... unlike mine!).
