We are so grateful you share our desire to learn Gujarati.
Did you know Gujarati is the 26th most-spoken language in the entire world!? You are about to become one of the 50 million people around the globe who speak this ancient language.
There are many reasons you can benefit from learning to be conversational in Gujarati. Our experience has shown these are the strongest motivators:
Have you moved outside of India? Perhaps you have had children and you desire that your young ones could be able to speak with family in India, maybe grandparents--even grandparents living with or near you.
Have you married into a Gujarati family? It might be nice, if this is not your native tongue to be able to communicate clearly with your new relatives. How impressed they will be!
• Need a Brush Up
Sometimes when we move into a new culture, the culture and language of our youth gently falls to the back burner until much is forgotten. Running through this Gujarati Essentials Course will bring the memories flooding back and you will be speaking quickly and clearly again before you know it.

Are you ready to dive in?
If you still have questions, listen to what the parent of one of our students has to say:
"I came to America at an early age. I consider myself a 2nd generation Indian. Growing up, I was always eager to learn about who I was, where I came from, and why I enjoyed being Gujarati. Finally, as an adult, I have the opportunity to learn more about being Gujarati along with my kids. Having an online Gujarati learning program allows us to learn our "Matra Bhasha" free from anxiety and from the comforts of our home.
Gujarati is not just a language. It is about our ancestors, it is part of our identity, it is about investing in ourselves. Sanskar Teaching, gives us the opportunity to learn the Gujarati language. To teach our kids morals and values through stories, games, and special verses. Most importantly Sanskar Teaching answers the many "why" questions my kids have.
Why do we say Ramkabir?
Why do we celebrate Diwali?
Why do we touch the feets of our elders?
Why do we tie a Rakhi on bhai?
Without Sanskar Teaching, I would not have the proper answers to these questions. Thank you for thinking of us and taking us on this new memorable journey with you.. I enjoy hearing you speak about your passion and love watching the enthusiasm in your eyes ..
I am so proud and honored to be apart of Sankar Teaching with you ☺"
