I am a Tamilian and I speak tamizh at home. But, living in the neighboring state of Karnataka and having studied in a school that didn’t have an option for a regional language study, my tamizh reading and writing skills were left wanting. I am 38 years of age now, and my long standing desire was to study tamil classics and the works of tamil saints. The forcefulness in the poems of Bharatiyaar and the devotion in the நாலாயிர திவ்யப் பிரபந்தம், were always a great attraction. I am now confident of my journey in being able to read and understand these works better. Thanks to my instructor for her effort! I also wish ilearntamil.com great success.
