Breaking the language barrier with her Hindi Lessons for Foreigners, she turned into Hindi teaching accidentally and her style of Hindi Teaching has been mentioned extensively about in BBC Hindi, Outlook India, Indian Express, Navbharat Times, Mumbai Mid Day, Your Story, Quint, The Better India etc. to name a few.

A Ted X speaker, a degree holder in Engineering & Psychology, a celebrity and foreigner coach for Hindi language and a very humble person, the Winning Stree forum has already met her during a Live Session about Hindi where she shared her experiences. Presenting our Winning Stree Pallavi Singh who spearheads a one-of-its-kind initiative in India to train foreigners in Hindi.

1. Who are you and how are you into what you do? 

Posted by Pallavi Singh on Friday, December 28, 2018
FB Interview with WinningStree

I’m Pallavi Singh, a very “everyday person” you would meet who can drink 30-50 masala chais in a day. 🙂

I’m into what I do because that’s what I enjoy and could make a living from. I figured out what I do best and monetized it to self-sustain. 

2. Tell us about your journey 

My journey was and is and I think will be events which are dotted with failure with a few successes and achievements that come in the way. I’ve studied different subjects, tried a lot of things and eventually finalized on one thing that works the best (for me). No major epiphanies as such, just a trajectory enriched with mistakes spearheaded by challenges and accomplishments.

3. Why teach Hindi of all languages and what is your favorite language?

Engineer helping foreigners with Hindi

Hindi is my native language, hence naturally is my asset. Chasing another language and culture and studying it for years to attain fluency and understanding did not excite me. My favorite language apart from Hindi (of course) is Spanish closely followed by Italian. Spanish has a very unique diction and aesthetic to it whereas Italian seems very ornate to my ears. 

4. How many languages do you speak, read and write?

I’m fluent in English & Hindi in terms of reading, writing & speaking. I am also pretty good in speaking Punjabi and reading “un peu” French. 

5. What are your future plans with your venture?

Ideally a “Pallavi’s School of Indian Languages” … fingers crossed. 

6. What is your modus operandi with this venture?

There is no ulterior motive. Just wish to enjoy my work whilst encouraging my students to understand Hindi and India a little better and make their “India” experience a bit more engaging and less intimidating.

7. What role would you have chosen as a career option if not Teaching Hindi?

I have no idea! Honestly, this is the only thing that worked out for me so I would rather say this profession chose me rather than the other way around.  

8. That winning Stree moment

With Bollywood Beauty Jacqueline Fernandez

When I got a call from Jacqueline Fernandez’s personal assistant inquiring about my Hindi Lessons. 

9. Three words you say to yourself when in front of the mirror

“Shit yaar Kajaal dhang se nahi laga!” So actually, six words. Lol!

10. Winning message to other women

Keep plowing ahead!

11. Difficulties you faced when fulfilling your dreams/aspirations

It was various things – from failing financially to safety & security. I work for my own self hence it’s a one-woman army and mistakes are not tolerated when you are liable to many people and their time. Initially, to garner faith from students was a big step. 

12. What makes you extraordinary?

Am I extra-ordinary? I don’t think so.

13. Your Favorite quote that you believe in…

“You can’t win if you don’t play”

With Lisa Ray

Her classes are interactive, fun-filled, humorous, lively and actively engaging. She teaches survival Hindi to people who haven’t had the faintest idea of the language whilst growing up and also instills confidence in them. By the end of her session, expats could communicate in Hindi on a day in day out basis and take back lessons to adjust to life in India.
