Think Nepali

is creating tools for learning.
Namaste and welcome to Think Nepali. 

I've created this space and teaching tools so that we can examine some nitty-gritty aspects of the Nepali language together. 

Learning a new language is tough work, and it can be overwhelming, but it can also be very rewarding. I like to think of it this way. It's like dumping a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle out on your kitchen table. When the pieces are askew, it doesn't look like anything, and that can feel daunting. Patiently you find the corner pieces, the edge pieces, and then pieces that might match. With patience and effort, the puzzle goes from an unrecognizable pile to a beautiful picture. The truth is there are no cheat codes or shortcuts for learning a new language. You have to study. The good news is that you can prioritize what you learn first and find those corner, edge, and matching pieces.

Nowadays, most people are retaining more from a 15-second Instagram story than 15 minutes with a textbook. That's where I come in. Concise video lessons will be created each month. Some lessons will be fundamental for helping newer ones and for refreshing veteran learners. Some lessons will be advanced to keep the pressure on and encourage progress. 

You'll notice Think Nepali lessons place a heavy focus on grammar in both English and Nepali. Don't let this scare you. It's important to understand that your grasp of Nepali grammar will only be as good as your grasp of grammar in your native language. Don't worry, I'll make it easy.

Resources I DO NOT recommend:
  • 💩Google Translate 😡
  • Anything transliterated/romanized from Nepali script. Prolonged use of this will only slow your progress.
