 The English class by Balambika mam through phone was very useful to me. In my school, I used to escape from the sight of the English teacher because English was such a boring subject to me. But, this class was interesting. I bettered my reading skill and grammar knowledge. Today, I am trying to read and understand English story books. It is the impact of the English class in me. Thanks to all for the opportunity. Astalakshmi is doing under graduation in Tamil and teaching volunteer for the kids in Madurai Seed. (Feb 2013)

 

 

 

 

 From my childhood I always desired to speak in english. But unfortunately I studied in tamizh medium where english was taught as a subject  only to score marks. I could never learn or enjoy the language. But  fortunately Nammaveedu Montessori School offered this Spoken English classes to the teachers working  in their school absolutely free. I decided to use this chance to improve my language  which was a great chance for me  who  had the thirst to learn the language.

 

This Class sponsored by  Sakthi Foundation and  conducted by Mrs. Balambika  has changed my life positively.   I am finding it useful not only in school while teaching but also in my life.I  have gained knowledge and confidence after attending the class. She has given special training in vocabulary  which has made me learn many new words and teach my students also.I am able to read fluently and draft my own sentences. I am able to submit
the observations of the students in english.She has taught grammar from the basic which has made me understand the toughest part very easily.I am able to speak in english with my students and motivate them also to speak.

 

Recently I had been to Hyderabad. I dont know hindi. But I managed with english that was taught by Mrs.Balambika.I could reply and converse.I was delighted. I realised how great thi class has been and what wonders it has done to my life.Now I am confident wherever I go I will able to communicate to people.

 

My parents are also happy.I am thankful to Sakthi Foundation and Mrs.Balambika for providing this golden opportunity.Mrs .Kalaivani  Montessori Teacher (Sendurai School, first Teacher) (Feb 2013)

 

 
 I am working  in a Montessori School. So naturally english becomes essential. I had problem in reading and understanding english though I was well versed in Montessori education.At the right time Sakthi Foundation came up with this english course  which gave me the needed exposure to the language. Mrs.Balambika taught us grammar from the basic which helped me to understand  grammar easily. She gave training in reading and drafting own sentences. This helped me to learn the language and teach my students also.

 

Earlier I was scared of the language but now I am able to understand english and  reply back. Having gained confidence in the english, I did the Foundation Course in Montessori  which is an additional qualification  for my career. Again I must thank Dr.Madeshwaran and Mrs.Balambika  for enabling me to complete this course.

 

Today I find this class useful to teach not only students in school but also my son. This class has given me knowledge and confidence.Mrs .Shanthi (Sendurai School, Montessori Teacher) (Feb 2013)

 

 

 

 I worked in Montessori School earlier .Now I  have got a government posting. When  I was allergic to the english language I got a chance through Sakthi Foundation to learn this  language in a  pleasant way. I  started to attend the class because Dr.Madeshwaran  asked the teachers to attend. But later on I got interested to learn the language because she taught us in an easy and pleasant way. Slowly I learnt to read , write and draft my own sentences . I was able to teach the children also english. Mrs. Balambika helped me to like the language  by teaching grammar from the basic. She was very patient and kind to teach us the pronunciations repeatedly even when we made mistakes. -Ms.Mallika, Sendurai School (Feb 2013)

 

Today the english I learnt is helping me a lot .Thanks to Sakthi Foundation  and Mrs.Balambila.

 

 I attended Balambika’s English class regularly. The class induced my efforts to speak the language. What I liked most is creating a sentence from a verb. My goal in 2013 is improving my communication in English.
