This year for the first time the South Asia Institute at Heidelberg
University in cooperation with the Università degli Studi di Firenze
offers a Summer School dedicated to advanced learners of spoken
Sanskrit. Shri Sadananda Das has prepared a course which especially
addresses the needs of the alumni of the previous Heidelberger Sanskrit
Summer Schools, but is equally open to those who already speak Sanskrit
fluently. What has been learnt in the previous courses will not only be
reactivated but shall offer the grounds for enlarging the vocabulary and

for practicing the usage of idiomatic expressions as well as developing
free speech and having topically oriented discussions. By introducing
new material from gnomic and kaavya literature one of the foci once
again will be memorizing, recitation and theatrical performance. This
time the three-week, all-day course organized by the South Asia
Institute will be hosted by our partner university in Florence and will
show to the old and new participants of the Summer School that also in
Italy ‘si parla sanscrito'.
