I believe there are a variety of approaches, how you can learn a language. And these approaches correlate with a person’s personality as well as the specific level of proficiency and learning needs at the time.
In this blog I offer you a various resources that will support you in your learning process.
English topical Posts about Nepal
Those are blog posts in English about topics related to Nepal, where I intersperse a few Nepali into the text, so that you have a chance to learn some new vocabulary along the way – without much intentional effort
Pronunciation & Script
Nepali uses a different script than the Latin script and you might want to chose to learn the Script, which is called Devanagari. But even if you don’t want to learn the script, it will be essential for you to learn the proper pronunciation of vowels and consonants in Nepali. Especially when we are talking about aspiration and non-aspiration, as well as the difference between dental and retroflex consonants
Dental and Retroflex I
Dental and Retroflex II
Well of course you will have to study the Grammar of Nepali in one way or the other. There are many people who (at least sometimes) need a concise introduction to a specific grammatical topic (e.g. the construction and usage of a specific verb tense). This (so far) is by no means concisive, but I have started to write and tape posts/videos on specific grammatical topics in Nepali
In detail Phrases
This is a approach that I really like personally very much: Where you study a random phrase in detail and pick it apart in its grammatical structure. It is inductive – which is how my own brain works most of the time anyways: Developing a concept of the broader structure, by studying a projection of that broader structure in a specific detail.
Nepali Texts with translations
These are basically texts (usually accompanied by an audio version, that I simply translate for you. And which you can use to study vocabulary and grammar by yourself-
Additional Information about the language
I also write about the language and its development (e.g. a comparison between Hindi and Nepali). These are informations that are not really crucial for learning the language, but are in fact very interesting and might help you to find greater interest and thereby motivation to keep studying Nepali.
