I married into a Telugu family and my desire to learn it stems from there. I tried to find apps or books but there weren’t many available. ilearntelegu is a rare resource that starts from the basics.
I bought in right after the first trial with Hemlatha. She encouraged me to not only learn spoken Telugu but also to read and write. I was able to recognise the alphabet within 10 classes. She also gives me insights into Telugu pop culture from time to time, making the lessons fun. She also been flexible with timings which is a big boon as I work long hours.
