What will we cover?

This is an experiential course. The focus will be on phonology in practice. Theoretical inputs are minimal, but sufficient to give proper context to the course.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

Several friends are already coming to this course, but I would strongly recommend it to my colleagues who are studying Sanskrit. It is the dimension not many of us have taken and it enriches all the studies and reading of the scriptures in Sanskrit. Students who have done little Sanskrit might find it a bit challenging, but there is the 'beginners' class.
