Audio and video paradigm practice

At first glance there seems to be a lot of different paradigms used in Sanskrit. However all the nouns and pronouns are based on the same basic pattern (Universal noun endings). Knowing this can help. The paradigms to learn first are those which apply to a large number of words i.e. Rama, Sita, mitram, tat, aham & tvam and bhavati.

Nouns/pronouns (audio, spoken): Introduction  Rama,  Sita,  mitram,(friend)  hari  guru (teacher)  nadi (river)  sah, saa, tat (he, she, it/that)  aham, tvam (I, you)

Verbs (audio, spoken): bhavati (he becomes - present tense), abhavat (he became - past), bhavishyati (he will become - future)  vardhate (he grows - present), vardhishyate (he will grow - future), avardhata (he grew - past)  asti (he is - present), asit (he was - past)  NOTE: labhate 'he finds' use the same endings as vardhate and can be used as extra practice:  labhate, (present)   alabhata, (past)   lapsyate (future)
