My name is Ali Taqi and I currently reside in New Delhi, India. I was born in Chicago, Illinois to Indian immigrants from the city of Hyderabad, Telengana. I attended Joyce Kilmer Elementary in Chicago's north-side neighborhood Roger's Park; Roger Sullivan High School, also in Roger's Park, and then I attended Loyola University Chicago's north-shore campus, also in Roger's Park.

After some years, I pursued an MSW at the University of Washington in Seattle while also taking advanced Hindi and Urdu classes as electives. The department of Asian Languages and Literature at the UW hired me to be a Teacher's Assistant for Hindi for Basic Hindi for more than more year during this time. A few years after attending the UW, I moved to New Delhi, India to start a language school. It has been over seven years now and the institute has impressively grown; there are a few ways to explain this growth, I will choose the size of the institute: first there was one classroom which could seat four students; 6 months later that increased to three classrooms, one of which sat over 15 students; after two years, the institute grew to six rooms, one of which sat 25 students; after another two years, another three rooms were added to the six totally nine; and that's where we are today. The institute is bustling with adult language students of all backgrounds, nationality-wise and professionally, there are over seven full-time teachers present everyday teaching a total of 12 languages (some know and teach more than one, like myself (Hindi, Urdu, and English)).
