Arnaldo rated it liked it May 14, After going through Part 1 Part 2 of his series focuses mostly on reading practice and prosody, I believeyou will be ready to move on to a more traditional, dense textbook, like Goldman’s “Devavanipravesika,” Coulson’s “Teach Yourself Sanskrit,” Desphande’s “SamskrtaSubodhini,” etc.
