I guess most of the people here want to move to NYC but it isn't as simple as it sounds, haha. And coming to the Telugu teacher thingy, I don't think you need to stress it out. It's really flattering that you wanna learn Telugu, but I guess it happens with daily interactions slowly. Maybe watch some movies with English subtitles for starters, constantly nag your partner asking him to explain what this or the other word means. That'll be super cute actually, haha. In case you've got no friends in Hyderabad, people staying here can actually meet you in case you're comfy with that.

Do you want to learn Telugu before coming to India or after? If after coming to india. A fine bet is to Consult a local telugu teacher who teaches in a decent school/College. They're usually very sweet and kind especially the older generation women teaching telugu and will be glad to help a foreigner trying to learn the language. My Telugu teacher back in school was the kindest soul I've ever seen in my life. Either this or get into a culture exchange kind of thing where 2 persons from different cultures and languages share stuff through Video calls.


erindesbois

Nenu telugu nerchkuntunanu since 4 years... this will be my 4th visit. 2 visits of only 3 weks and last year I was here for 3 months. But locked down mainly because of pandemic, and everyone I met speaks English except for my attamma. So then when we are in my family's house, I just sort of stay out of the way while my husband gets his special time with his parents.


Gachibowli_Diwakar14

Don't think about "stay out of the way". Your in laws clearly love you. The people speak in English with you because it's your language and you're yet to learn Telugu. They don't want to make you feel uncomfortable by speaking in telugu. Everyone loves a social and a mingling person here in the telugu states, more so if you're a foreigner trying to learn the language and culture. My uncle's Friend's wife is an American as well and she learned telugu by speaking telugu with her in laws and relatives irrespective of how many mistakes she's making in sentence formation and grammar but that's how she got the expertise. She didn't fear speaking it wrong and persevered by speaking it daily even if she's in USA. Now she speaks pitch perfect telugu. Just try and do it. Everyone will be helpful in the process.


erindesbois

I should elaborate, I definitely interact with everyone and I have a good emotional understanding with my mother in law. But when people are having important or deep discussions I stay out of it so not to break the tone.

My high school Telugu teacher, Karunakar sir, was awesome. Not only an amazing teacher, he was a good man at heart and would listen to his student’s woes and support and encourage them.


fekumama

Akka start watching telugu movies with subtitles and telugu news on youtube. You will pick up the slang and enunciations. Keep google translate nearby. Listening and practicing is all i can tell you now. There are many learn telugu in 30 days books available online i believe, but they depend a lot on your dedication. Try youtube channels like https://youtu.be/nlg5GTBg_1E Practice and watch telugu classic movies and serials(drama shows) to pick up stuff. All the best on your endeavor. Also from an economic point of view NYC makes no sense to live in for most telugu software abbayis and ammailu. Ask yourself how many software companies are there in NYC? West Coast forever!!!


erindesbois

Oh gosh I think I've seen every Mahesh Babu and Allu Arjun movie there is, (definitely seen the ramulo ramula movie at least 3 times) and many other bitch slapping and range rover/machete action scenes! I can tell instantly when the language is Telugu and even the difference between TS and AP accents but the multisyllablic words all just run into each other for me....


fekumama

Ok, that means you are in an advanced stage of recognizing the language. All you need now is the cognition skills and the ability to put thoughts into words. Part 2 of your Telugu learning journey is you need to start watching telugu movies without subtitles now, try watching the ramulo ramula movie without subtitles and you should be able to make out the meaning of the dialogues and try the same with some other movie which you haven't watched to see how far you can understand it without subtitles. Think of every interaction with your in laws as a movie without subtitles. As long as you are able to understand which word means what in what tone you are on the right track. That's the goal of understanding any new language - communication. In general with any community, if you are able to communicate in a few chaste words of their language with them, they would be more than impressed.

Best bet to meet telugu people will be in NJ. I can think of bridgewater balaji temple as one place where you will see telugu peeps . Apart from that I know jersey city and NJIT has decent telugu community and short commute from Manhattan. ఆంగ్లం వాడినందుకు క్షమించండి. OP యొక్క తెలుగు నైపుణ్యం తెలియక వాడవలిసి వచ్చింది.


erindesbois

>ఆంగ్లం వాడినందుకు క్షమించండి. OP యొక్క తెలుగు నైపుణ్యం తెలియక వాడవలిసి వచ్చింది. I had to google translate this to understand. I showed my proficiency above as a baseline for how little I know - not zero but still horrible! Problem with Jersey is, it's so car-centric and Edison is like 2-3 hours train journey for me. It's almost easier to go to hyd...


varlarmorgulis1425

True . Try to attend Indian cultural events close to you along with your family and socialize every now and then. They are fun and you might meet some telugu peeps.


erindesbois

Yes, unfortunately we are missing durga puja and diwali this year but we will be there for sankranti. And my in laws are planning a vow renewal this year so I'll finally attend a wedding where I wasn't the bride...

Spirited-Pattern9318

I read this in American accent. Lol. Anyways I think youtube, movies with subtitles etc should help. U don't really need to hire anyone. Besides there are apps for free like duolingo etc. For me movies have been of great help in understanding other languages.


erindesbois

Please reread in a New England accent. I downloaded Mango Languages (just like duolingo) and the mangoes spoke with a thick andhra accent and my husband said it wouldn't be useful for talking to aunties in the village. And yeah, I am probably undervaluing what I am learning from movies and stuff. Keep giving it more chances.


chakkara_Thalli

Telugu teachers in NYC or Hyderabad?


erindesbois

I was looking for Hyd, since we plan to arrive around first week November. In person teaching works best for me, but if I clicked with the right teacher when I am there I would try to maintain the relationship through video after going back to US.

Try silicon andhra manbadi. They have teachers. We do send our kids there ( Saturday classes) to learn some Telugu words. See if there are some. You can get teacher (1:1) also. Also there is Facebook group called us-india tutors hub. Post there.. some folks will give demo class , so that you can proceed if you like.


chocobridges

They're awful for adults learners. I know from experience. Completely inflexible.


ur8moms

Hey op! I don’t have anyone in particular in mind right now but what I can say you will find one very easily! Telugu people love it when people of different culture seem to take interest in telugu culture and will be very enthusiastic in teaching. Also you seem to already have basic understanding of Telugu and its grammar which is very impressive as it’s very different from the Germanic language tree. Keep the same interest and hope you have great experience learning! >!you probably kinda understand the memes here. So we expect shitposts from you here soon 😆!<


erindesbois

i am here for only one thing and that is shitposts. and biryani recommendations, naturally


voteralso

Might I suggest the app Clubhouse?! Edit: there are Telugu clubs over there that keep staring rooms for casual chitchat, "Telugu tribe" is one of them, but you can search and find others. It'll help get that practice with speaking and listening, which is really needed for fluency and proficiency.


DemonGod-zoro

Let me remind you about అభాతెమాస ?

From NJ, I couldn't find anyone local or while I lived in NYC who would teach me the way I learn language. I became fluent in Spanish so I know what works for me. I have some great teachers via Skype from Hyderabad. DM me.

Why don’t you ask your husband to teach Telugu and converse with him only in Telugu? Even if you hire a teacher, I don’t think the teacher will teach you more than the Telugu conversations you have with your husband. Just my thought

I've practiced and practiced the few telugu phrases I know, but my listening comprehension is terrible. Plus I lose my words when I feel like it's important, so I can easily chitty chatty with the tiffin wallas but fail to have a meaningful conversation with my inlaws.


infraninja

Check Johnny Harris video on how to pick a new language. Apparently you only need 250-500 words to carry a basic conversation. Then figure out what that list is for Telugu and go from there. I speak 5 languages and picking up Spanish (or Chinese??) now.
