Hi everyone, my name is Elena and I'm from Bulgaria. I have a deep interest in the cultures, languages and philosophy of the countries of South Asia, especially of the Indian subcontinent. Studying Hindi, Sanskrit and Urdu in Sofia university was a great basis for my further stay, study and travel in India. My 7 years' teaching experience in Hindi covers all levels of language. I strive to implement a more creative approach in teaching and learning. Part of my other topics of interest are: psychology, philosophy, ethnic studies, essential oils, alternative medicine, Ayurveda. I have 7 years of teaching experience. Two years' course in Hindi for beginners at the Indology department; another two years in prose and poetry translation in Hindi/English; two more years of teaching spoken Hindi language to Yoga instructors, and one year of teaching for business purposes.
