Sign up to KannadaGottilla (whose name means “don’t know Kannada”) to enter into one of their WhatsApp courses and receive daily tuition from your “mentor.” There are separate groups for men and women, and also for beginners and intermediate-level students. For beginners, the course lasts for 30 days and you’ll learn basic words and phrases. You’ll also receive audio recordings and homework. And, of course, you’ll have the WhatsApp group in which to practice and ask questions. For intermediate students, the course is 45 days long. It focuses more on grammar, especially tenses. Everyone starts the course at the same time, and you should be able to join your course within 15 days of having signed up. Each group will contain 25–30 people, which means you benefit from joining a Kannada-learning community as well as the daily material and access to a mentor.
