Dina-Anukampana Das is a third-generation Singaporean who speaks only English.  He has discovered some very interesting things about the way our hearing ability can change as we learn Sanskrit Pronunciation.  Since he speaks only English, he knows very well the difficulties a typical English-speaking person faces when trying to hear and then reproduce foreign, Sanskrit sounds.  At age 26 he became interested in Sanskrit chanting - the traditional way he picked up the correct pronunciation from his dad was painfully slow and, in his opinion, inefficient.

Being a natural teacher at heart, Dina devised ways to impart his hearing & learning experiences to others in as short a period of time as possible.  He's been able to compress the transmission of the required skills to within just 4 lessons of 2 hours each... quite a remarkable claim, but something that has to be experienced to be believed!

This has been possible with inputs and training from an expert in Accelerated Learning, who helped devise easy-to-remember tables and physical exercises which 'create the needed patterns in our minds' and reform our un-conscious speaking process into one where we are very conscious of each syllable as we articulate it.  He compares this to learning how to drive a manual-transmission car even though one knows how to drive an auto-transmission car.
