Although Tamil is my native language and what was spoken at home, I have never been able to speak well. I have for many years been searching for Tamil lessons to brush up on my spoken language. After having kids, this became much more important to me! I wanted them to know the language I grew up with, to speak with their grandparents, and have something special to share between themselves.
I was so happy to have stumbled upon ilearnTamil! Setting up lessons was seamless and very affordable! I requested lessons slightly different from their usual package given I wanted lessons for myself AND both my young kids. ilearnTamil was accommodating to find the best learning situation for the 3 of us!
We are most lucky to have been matched with such a wonderful teacher! Srimathy has a very enthusiastic and encouraging approach in her teaching, which is wonderful for my children but really any new learner. She checks-in throughout the lesson to assess for our understanding and is willing to review as many times as we need. Srimathy is very patient with our progress and always encourages us to try even if we are uncertain of the words. I most impressed with her ability to engage all three learners of different ages (40-ish yr, 11yrs, 8yrs) who are at different stages in our language ability! She makes the lessons fun and enjoyable! She is kind and works well with children! She frequently tells us stories about the culture, the lifestyle, the land/animals, and the traditions to make the lesson more relatable and immersive!
I can not say enough about ilearnTamil–what a find for us! And Srimathy in particular is amazing!
