Learning Tamil through this online platform has been a wonderful learning experience for me. I appreciate the enthusiasm and patience of Gayathri, the teacher who was assigned to me for this course. Though, I took only ten lessons in Tamil over a period of two months, my tutor helped me feel at ease, encouraged me, and also I felt inspired enough to boldly communicate in Tamil with people around me whose native language is Tamil. Some of the lesson plans really helped in loosening my mental blocks, especially when it came to the use of the tenses. I am grateful to this initiative that helps making a non-Tamilian feel uninhibited to communicate and to celebrate the beauty of this ancient, sacred language from India.
