I am an ardent Indophile and particularly in love with the city of Mumbai, and am hoping to do some research into urban cosmopolitanism there. To this end, I wished to learn Marathi in addition to Hindi but struggled to find online resources for Marathi until I came across Kaushik Lele’s blog.
Immediately I felt in safe hands – the blog is very logically structured and takes a grammar-led approach which is perfect for learners who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the language beyond a handful of phrases. It is also accompanied by audio recordings on YouTube which aid immeasurably with the pronunciation.
Furthermore, Kaushik has been extremely generous with his time in answering users’ queries and sharing them on the site. For all these reasons I think that this is simply the best resource for anybody out there wishing to learn conversational Marathi.
