Communication is the key to a good education. That is why we recommend you to learn at least a small amount of the local language. Do note that there are many languages spoken in India. In fact, there are 22 official languages in India. The most important is Hindi, which is widely spoken all over north India as well as in many regions in the western, eastern, and central ranges of the country. Although English is popularly assumed to be a widely spoken and understood language in India, it is still far from sufficient for understanding Indian culture
For most of India, learning Hindi language will be an excellent investment of your time, as it functions as the lingua franca and will allow you to communicate with the maximum number of people in the country across most of India’s varied geography.
