Welcome to the Gujarati Essentials Course!
We are so excited to be joining you on your journey to speak Gujarati and along the way to learn more about this colorful culture.
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.
