Happy to say, the Sanskrit course I took was taught in roman letters. Of course it was a quickie Summer session deal, but we managed to advance a lot further than if we'd had to struggle with Devanagari for weeks... An old Berlitz Russian book I struggled with used both Cyrillic and roman; unfortunately the only thing that has stuck with me is: vot borshch! "Here is the borscht!" and I don't even like the stuff.
