Ratna Mukhani

"My sons have really enjoyed this program. They have begun to learn vital skills in order to be effective communicators. The teachers were very patient, supportive and encouraging. I would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to improving their children's presentation and communication skills."

Bina Shah

"Dilan truly enjoyed the Public Communications class. He learned a lot of wonderful skills and the carryover, homework, and group and individual participation was carefully implemented. He has a developed a good early foundation of life skills as a result."

Raina Mehta

"It's been amazing to converse in Hindi with my daughter and listen to her sing Hindi songs. A big thanks to Anu for putting so much thought and care into the curriculum."

Prashanthi Reddy

"My son was able to communicate in Hindi with his Grandfather, that was a magic moment for them both:)"

Ratna Mukhani

"This class is a great opportunity for our kids to learn Hindi and the culture. Every week my kids (5 year old) are very excited to come to the class. The teachers are very dedicated and great with the kids."

Sun Kim

"Our son (age 5) is an enthusiastic participant of this class. The teachers do a great job of making the class interactive and fun through song and games, while simultaneously packing in a lot of learning! He comes home wanting to practice his writing and slipping Hindi words into our conversations."
