Review for SCHOOL OF INDIA FOR LANGUAGES AND CULTURE, St Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with SILC since my 9 year old entered pre-school. I adopted her from India when she was 11 months old. SILC has give both of us, as well as her sisters, an opportunity to experience and learn about her birth country and culture. The people have been welcoming and friendly. We all participate on different levels, and SILC embraces all of them.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

learning to read and write Telugu. But even more than that -- the people. I admire and respect the people of SILC and now number many of them among my close friends.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

open and friendly. Always willing to answer questions and offer advice when I have specific cultural concerns.
