In our Summer School you will learn to speak in Sanskrit about topics of daily life using classical and modern vocabulary. This changes the way you look at the language, which is often thought of as just a written, "dead" language. This enables and encourages you to actively use Sanskrit in everyday conversation, and this in turn contributes to a better understanding of written Sanskrit. Our course is led by Dr. Sadananda Das, an experienced Sanskrit teacher who has been offering highly sought-after courses in spoken Sanskrit around the world for many years.
