I have been learning German at Zabaan. The teacher, Silvio, is very understanding and patient. He takes us through the complicated terrain of German grammar step-by-step, allowing one to be at ease with the language. For somebody who has had practically no exposure to German language, the approach is very friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed and yet very professional. Silvio is a very knowledgeable teacher, who is able to give individual attention to the student and does not hesitate to explain the roots of certain words. He takes special care to ensure that one gets all the pronunciations right.

I remember Zabaan when it was two people with a good idea handing out flyers in Khan Market. Since those days (actually not so long ago) it has grown into a first rate language institute offering courses in 9 modern and 4 classical languages (and counting). I haven't taken Old Norse but I can definitely say there is no better place in Delhi to study Hindi. The quality of the teaching is superb, well-structured but also tailored to individual needs and learning styles. The teachers are fascinated by language and how we learn. They have a deep knowledge of their subjects and an ability to explain any detail or nuance in a clear effective way, consulting books and dictionaries if necessary. I really look forward to my classes: they are stimulating, challenging, enjoyable - and they work! Plus the chai is delicious. In fact Zabaan is a deeply civilised place. I recommend it highly.
I first studied Hindi at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. The teaching at Zabaan is at least as good as it was there, if not better.


Zabaan not only has well equipped classrooms with air-conditioning to keep your head cool while in class, it also offers places to relax or study on your own and the possibility to share a home-cooked lunch with your classmates.
