  • Sanskrit Tutor. Sanskrit Tutor is based on the Level 1 Sanskrit course taught by Dr. Sarasvati Mohan of the Sanskrit Academy. This course has been student tested for 30 years as a tool for teaching Sanskrit. Seth Craighead, an advanced student of the Sanskrit Academy, has combined years of software engineering experience with an interest in Sanskrit to produce this easy to use educational software. The first lesson introduces students to the Devanagari script by showing how to write each character while playing its sound. Once the students master this, they progress on to pronunciation exercises, which teach them how to combine consonants and vowels to form Sanskrit words. The copying exercises also strengthen their ability to write in Sanskrit. These exercises form the foundation for learning Sanskrit, Hindi, and other Northern Indian languages which use the Devanagari script. This program can be used by children as young as 5 to learn at their own pace.
