Seeking Hindi or Gujarati Lessons
An urbanMama recently emailed:
We are a NE family consisting of a cultural mutt (me) and a wonderful half English/half Indian (my husband). We embrace all aspects of our combined heritage but identify closely with the Indian side of the family. However, my husband was never taught his father's language of Gujarati or the national language of Hindi growing up. I am a strong believer in 2nd language education for kids from a very early age and I would very much like my children to have the chance to learn either Hindi or Gujarati (or both). I even went so far to take a year of Hindi myself to try to learn enough to speak a little to them - that didn't last long. I'm wondering if anyone in the urbanMamas community is aware of a school, a tutor, an organization - anything that offers these languages specifically for kids. I would even conisder a nanny/household helper that spoke so that we could all be immersed in the language from time to time.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
