The manner in which Geeta teaches the language infuses a sense of confidence in kids; even where words don't make sense, my boys were able to grasp some parts of the word - due to the emphasis put on phonetic learning in class. Getting kids to make small sentences and understand keywords meant that Hindi suddenly wasn't one garbled language - it was made up of many smaller recognizable parts and words - which meant the boys didn't switch off when someone rattled off in Hindi; instead, I could see recognition in their eyes - of the keywords and satisfaction that they too, were part of the Indian culture and crowd.
I think it's a really brilliant initiative by Geeta. Living far away from our country and culture, it's really important that our children grow up with the core values and cultural aspects that are important to us. Magic of India classes are an essential and wonderful way of educating children.
Our daughter didn't know any Hindi and due to her school commitments, never had an opportunity to go to cultural or language classes. Magic of India offers a well-structured balance of physical, language and cultural education, in a creative, fun and encouraging environment.
Best Holi experience any child or adult could wish for. Geeta and her team for Magic of India put up the best events and hindi classes with the highlight being the Holi Event. The organisation is pristine and the children have an extraordinary experience. Theres music, colour, fun, food and lots of dancing.
Geeta's a great teacher. My daughter loves her lessons and videos! Also, the option of learning an additional language is invaluable to her development.
We are really happy having found Magic of India lessons for our son. In a matter of a few months, his comfort with speaking Hindi has greatly increased. The varied class content, discussions and methodology keep him engaged and interested. Geeta’s enthusiasm is infectious and through a mixture of techniques, she is very effectively promoting language as well as our culture through her Web classes.
My daughter immensely enjoys her classes and all the activities Geeta organizes at Magic of India. Geeta continues to introduce them to the language and culture of India through a number of innovative sessions. We look forward to more!
