Review for School of India for Languages and Culture, St Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

School of India For Languages and Culture (SILC) provides an excellent opportunity to twin cities (minneapolis / st.paul) community interested in learning about Indian languages (hindi, telugu, kannada, malayalam, nepali, tamil, gujarati), culture (festivals, dances, food, arts, tabala, yoga, cricket, cooking). At a personal level, it helped me and my kids to stay connected with our roots; and at the same time, gave me an opportunity to share and to teach Telugu language.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

giving me a sense of purpose and direction in staying connectd to the cultural roots and language.

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

being a Telugu teacher and volunteer - spending every saturday morning with the rest of volunteers, parents, teachers and students

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

dedicated, professional and hold vast amount of experience and knowledge; And and all of them share a passion to volunteer, help and teach

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help in moving to a permanant school building in Minneapolis / St Paul (Right now, SILC operates in a rented school space on weekends). It could also help in supporting many outreach programs (inviting people from India for guest lectures / performances)
