Nicolai's teaching

  • emphasizes clear, organized, organic instruction in a fun, playful environment.
  • encourages actual learning during class (not just teaching).
  • includes written materials, allowing students to focus on listening more than on writing notes.
  • shows all Sanskrit words in the Roman transliteration (English letters with occasional marks), and in the original Devanagari script when appropriate
  • promotes the correct pronunciation and rhythm of Sanskrit.
  • encourages students to develop their own interpretation of Sanskrit verses by looking at several translations and drawing on personal life experience.
