Jano Hindi Testimonials

Always wanted to thank you for the marvelous ‘Holi’ project you did in Hindi Class. Students were able to read and understand the significance of the Holi festival (which was printed in English).’Holi ke geet’ was such a festive song -kids were not only having fun while singing it but also they were becoming more fluent with the use of the rhyming words. Other activities which included Holi related words and of course naming of the different colors in Hindi (as Holi being the festival of color!) was great too.. And last but not the least, my kid who is in Level 2, very much enjoyed making his hand print on the paper using color paint. He truly felt to be part of the Holi celebration and so did we ..Thankyou for all your support in making kids learn their own heritage and culture but in a fun way.

–Sonia

Just wanted to let you know that our daughter is really enjoying her Hindi lessons and is very excited to tell us all about it every Thursday. Yesterday, she told us she’ll try and reply back to us in Hindi substituting with English words for those she doesn’t know. Thank you for creating the interest and making learning a fun process.

–Vandana

I wanted to share our Hindi class experience with you. My son is having the best time in USHA’s Hindi class at Stratford. The teacher is great at teaching and interestingly draws in kids to converse in Hindi. She is also a wonderfully warm person and can connect with the kids. It is amazing to see how enthused the whole class is during the lesson. I see everyone participating and enjoying the Hindi lesson.

–Priya

Last week our son brought home the “Holi” project. It was excellent. I saved it in his keepsake folder so I can show him for years to come. Thank you and I appreciate you taking the extra step in making the kids learn hindi in a better and more fun way.

–Devitha

It was really great idea to do the holi festival activity in class. The kids enjoyed it. Also they got to learn the history behind the celebration of the festival. It was nice to hear the story of holi from my kid when he came home. This will surely make our kids familiar with our Indian culture & tradition. I would suggest that you should do such activities for all our Indian festivals like Diwali, Ganesh chaturthi, Raksha Bandhan, Dassera, Navrathri, sankranti…etc Thanks once again !!!

–Aarti Jadhav

My daughter, who is almost 3, loves her Hindi teacher and listens to her. USHA’s formal yet gentle class structure has piqued my daughter’s curiosity about India and Hindi language more than community/social activities did. I appreciate our teacher’s efforts and sincerity, and I recommend her to anyone who wants their children to be more familiar with India and Hindi. I believe this class helped my daughter feel more comfortable with her relatives and her cultural background during our recent visit to India.

–Dyuti Ganjoo

I am simply amazed to see my son’s improvement in such a little time. Being a working Mom I used to get hardly enough time to help him even with his homework.I give full credit to his teacher. She was very helpful, understanding and friendly. Within 2-3 classes my son started taking interest in learning new words. Just like English alphabets, he started practicing Hindi alphabets all by himself. From absolutely no knowledge about Hindi alphabets, today he is trying to spell Hindi words. I am looking forward to send him to next level. Thanks.

–AFSHA ALI

My son enjoyed his classes very much. I was amazed when he was reading words fluently by the end of the year. He is also showing interest in speaking to us in Hindi and is less shy about trying out words. He enjoyed learning the poems. We look forward to sending him back next year for the Level 2 classes. Thanks for everything!

–Saras Venkatram

My 8-year old went to the after school Level 1 USHA program. The teacher made sure it was fun but also ensured that my son learnt what was necessary. The USHA materials are engaging and of very high quality. My son loved the classes. He wants to return next year!

–Latha Sundher

Our daughter attended the first level of Hindi Language learning from Curtner school. For her it was learning a new language in an enjoyable way. We are very happy with the curriculum and the way teacher interacts with the students. The weekly homework was a simple but useful exercisefor a 3rd grade student to get start with Hindi . The follow up by the teacher for homework, when kids miss a class etc are great.

–Sasi kumar

Having Hindi classes brought right into the school campus has been a HUGE bonus to us. The curriculum is well thought out and delivered in a fun way that kids enjoy. My daughter looks forward to her Meenakshi Auntie’s classes every week. I am hoping USHA will continue offering classes at Stratford next school year as well. I would not mind a class that is either longer in duration or classes offered twice a week.

–Preeti Gupta

I was very happy with the program. In a very short time, my daughter was comfortable with the language and the teacher’s encouraging style gave her the much needed confidence. I will strongly recommend the program.

–Madhu Chatterjee

We are very happy with our daughter’s progress this year and wanted to recommend our teacher for her teaching style and innovation. She puts a lot of effort to make class interesting and keep students engaged. She has a good balance of kindness and firmness during her interaction with students. Kids are motivated to move towards “do it yourself”. Hope my daughter in 3rd level has a similar experience next year.

–Preeti agrawal

“I was very happy with Level 2 and Level 3 course curriculum and the teacher’s commitment to teaching Hindi to our kids at Warm Springs. The classes are held regularly every week without fail and the teachers do very good job of meeting kids’ individual needs. I like that the classes are held in school after school so kids do not have to travel separately for them, it saves time for us too.”

–Deepika Trivedi

The material you provide are awesome … much better than what I expected to see for Hindi in the USA !

Camps: Parent Testimonials

“Eduhindi camp was awell rounded fun and learning camp. It developed the “Conversational Hindi” skills, that made the students to connect from learning to real-life. Eduhindi Academic syllabus is the best suited for NRI Kids.”

–SrinivasSardar

“We are a non-Hindi speaking family, and we wanted our son Ashwin to get a flavor of Hindi as it is our national language. We were very happy with the curriculum and excellent coaching provided by both teachers, Neetu and Chitra.They made learning fun, and the games and cartoons helped draw the kids to the language.To this day, he rates it as one of the best camps he attended last summer! And, that in turn encouraged us to enroll him in the after shool program in his elementary school, where he is currently learning to read, write and speak Hindi with Ms.Renu. Five stars to USHA and its teachers!!”

–Rukmini & ParthaNatampalli

It was a very positive learning experience. Not only did Poorvi get more enthused about learning Hindi, she made some wonderful friends. She and her camp friends will be joining the year long classes. Before the camp started Poorvi was very reluctant to go to the camp. Her response at the end of the first day of camp was – “Mom I loved it, it was the best thing ever. Can I go to the camp on Sat and Sun and next week also?” We would recommend this camp to our friends. It was a wonderful experience for Poorvi and I would like to thank all the teachers for their efforts.

–RoliKhattri

“Our 5 year old daughter loved the Hindi Camp. She went to several camps during her summer break, and this was her favorite camp. We were very pleased to see her sing the indian national anthem in Hindi and to see a Hindi play from all the kids. This was the first time she came back home and sang hindi poems to us. We are looking forward to putting her in this camp this year too.”

–Vijay and SunitaAgrawa

I’ve been suitably impressed by their ability to handle mixed age groups and mixed-level groups and keep the curriculum fresh and engaging. My daughter came home from her first class knowing how to write her name in Hindi and the Hindi club at her school has become somewhat of a poster-child for other language after-school programs. I showed her workbooks to my mom and cousin from Canada and they were very impressed – and these are people who teach extra-curricular Hindi programs in Ottawa/Toronto respectively. My husband and I would be very strong advocates/supporters of bringing this team in.
