It seems everyone these days knows their ‘je m’appelle’ and ‘au revoir’, but we’ve seen a decline in those well acquainted with the languages of the subcontinent. If your grandfather has sat you down for repeated renditions of Ghalib, you’ll know how eloquent and full of grace these dialects are. Luckily, we chanced upon Zabaan, which is a language centre that offers regular courses in Hindi, Urdu, Pashto, Dari, Persian, Arabic, Sanskrit, Braj Bhasha, as well as English – and from what we hear, they’re pretty darn good! Get private lessons, learn online, or sign up for one of their group classes.
