Introduction To Sanskrit


This assignment is to navigate through a webapp designed to teach students of Sanskrit everything they need to know about the Sanskrit alphabet. It is structured in such a way such that students will encounter each letter, its pronunciation, script, and special properties in turn. Students will also learn how to write the Devanāgarī script through a writing practice platform integrated into the webapp.
