Hindi Classes Award Ceremony at India House

India House

HOUSTON: One of the difficult, though most desirable, aspects of moving to a foreign country is motivating our kids to learn our native language and remain connected with our culture. While inspiring students to learn Hindi can be a difficult task, the rewards are more than worth it.

To meet the growing demand of students and to promote the language, India House started Hindi Language and Culture of India Classes in October 2015 at their premises. The class is taught by the most experienced Hindi and Culture of India instructor Arun Prakash who started and taught Hindi at Bellaire High School, Rice University and University of Houston.

All 16 enrolled students were awarded certificates after clearing the final examination. A simple award ceremony was held at India House on May 15, to celebrate the achievement of these kids. Dr. Manish Rungta, President, India House and Jiten Agarwal, Vice President Finance, India House gave away the certificates.

Views of some of the parents and students are the testimony of the success of the program.
“Both our sons absolutely enjoyed the Hindi class taught at India House. I had almost given up on them on learning Hindi, after trying various weekend classes for them in Houston for almost last 4 years. This is the first class where they felt engaged, & motivated to learn reading, writing & speaking Hindi & they did. We are very pleased with it”– Rachna Agarwal

“Hindi classes by Arun Prakash Sir have been so engaging & fun. I am looking forward to the advanced classes now” – Varun, 7th Grader

“Finally, I am not scared of Hindi language anymore. I picked up Hindi before by listening to our elders in India during my visits, but I was always goofing up. Thanks to our Hindi teacher Mr. Arun Prakash.” – Rahul, 9th Grader

“I personally sat through many of Arun Ji’s classes and my daughter and I loved his unique teaching style.  He combines teaching Hindi with discussions of many key life lessons and stories.  This keeps the kids engaged and they have fun. Connecting with teenagers to teach them not only about our language but also our culture is an art which he performs masterfully.”- Hardeep Singh father of Jasmine Singh, 10th Grader
