संस्कृत संभाषण शिबिरम् – चैत्र 2019
Saṃskṛta Bhāratī UK invites you to participate in the 12th annual Saṃskṛta Saṃbhāṣaṇa Śibiram (residential Spoken Sanskrit Camp) at Leicester over the upcoming Easter long-weekend (4 days & 3 nights, spanning nearly 50 hours of learning and speaking sanskrit).
Level: Intermediate (Some familiarity with basic Sanskrit, is suggested for attendees.)
In our residential camps (Śibiram) attendees will get to stay in a beautiful natural setting, learn and speak Saṃskṛtam without any distractions. Such camps have proved to be very successful in not just learning the language, but also imbibing the cultural values and also re-energize oneself. More importantly, one gets to network and form friendship with others with similar interests.
- Learn to use spoken Sanskrit in an immersive atmosphere.
- Practise your spoken-Sanskrit skills with like-minded friends.
- Listen to stories narrated, songs sung and games played in Saṃskṛtam
- Gain some invaluable experience in an area of Saṃskṛtam learning that even universities do not provide.
- Find some hard-to-find Sanskrit books and educational materials on sale at the venue.
All this and more in a fun-filled environment!
For improving the Saṃskṛtam that you may have learned, this is the best opportunity. Even if you have never participated in a saṃbhāṣaṇa śibiram before, this opportunity will give you a jump-start to your spoken sanskrit skills.
