Summer school in spoken Sanskrit 2002:

The Department of Classical Indology at the South Asia Institute, Universität Heidelberg, offers a unique opportunity to participate in a spoken Sanskrit course this summer under the
tutelage of a Sanskrit native speaker.
It is the aim of the course to enable students, particularly those pursuing Indological Studies, to overcome the perception of Sanskrit as a written language alone and, instead, to learn to pronounce, speak and recite it. The four-week course will make the study of Sanskrit a playful experience and demystify it.
