I've been doing self-study Hindi for the last several months using Teach Yourself Hindi books and Rosetta Stone, and feel like I would improve a lot if I finally just took a class. (I had a bad experience with a "tutor" in Jaipur--a woman about my age who wasn't actually a tutor, and who basically just opened up the Hindi grammar book I showed her, and started reading Hindi to me, expecting me to understand...)

I accidentally discovered on Google Maps the Academy of Applied Languages (AAL) in Gurgaon right next to Galleria.

Does anyone have any experience with this school?

It's a little pricier than I'd want to pay, and it seems like the hours of instructions are few, but if the school is good, it would be worth it.

I found another school, while we're at it. Anyone have experience with Hindi Guru, either in Delhi or in Gurgaon?

I have been curious about the Hindi Guru school as well - would be delighted to hear others feedback if anyone has attended classes or worked with a tutor from either of these Gurgaon schools. Many thanks!

I had an appointment with Ashok from Hindi Guru today. The office is a little tricky to find, but Google Maps has the location exactly right. It's the basement of a house, basically, but very clean and bright.

Basically, they only offer one-on-one teaching unless you can organize your own group for a group lesson. The price for one-on-one is 500 rupees per hour (half the price of AAL), and there is a minimum requirement of 50 hours, which I don't like. Ashok was nice, seemed patient, and had good English. It is mostly a conversational lesson that I will probably take from them, although they can gear their instruction to the student's needs.

c2gaines, I am going to message you and see if you would be interested in trying to do a group lesson to bring the cost down to 275 rupees per person...if you were interested, we'd need to round up another person, though. It is a minimum of 3 people.

I don't really like one-on-one lessons, personally...
