The long-running Bhasha Bharati Language Institute (tel/>2420447; www.bhashabharati.com), near Chowk police station, runs Hindi-language courses. Thirty-hour courses cost Rs 200 per person per hour for one-on-one lessons that emphasise speaking and listening. A family homestay can be arranged (US$300 per week including lessons and meals), which is probably best for learning the language quickly.
Teach English abroad with an i-to-i TEFL Course
If you’ve ever thought about living and working abroad, then why not teach English as a foreign language (TEFL)? It could be the key to funding your travels and experiencing new cultures in a totally new way. You don’t need teaching experience or even the ability to speak the local language – although you might learn it while you’re out there.
