Welcome to On-Line Gujarati Language Course. The course is open to all. This course is scientifically designed by language experts to facilitate easy step by step learning.
Many on-line Gujarati language courses are available. However, majority of them provide some basics of learning Gujarati script. It has been observed that many learners seek to learn reading skills. The second/third generation of Nonresident Gujaratis and those who wish to learn Gujarati need a good basic language course. It is difficult to provide speaking skills in absence of two-way channel. Hence it was decided to prepare materials which provides reading skill and to certain extent listening skill.
As already been said the course basically helps the learner to acquire reading and to some extent listening skills of Gujarati language. The course material is spread over in 32 lessons and is expected to cover in about 60 hours in a self-learning mode. The first few lessons provide materials for Gujarati script, words, phrases and sentences. The learner can also listen to the sounds, words, phrases, sentence in a progressive manner. After 18 lessons the learner is taken to a little advanced level of reading. First 18 lessons provide listening drills in which the learner is provided time to speak. At the end of each lesson glossary of words is given. Only essential grammatical information is provided in a simple language and with ample practice sessions. At some places writing exercises are given. The learner can do this in his/her notebook. At the end of each lesson answers are given for self-checking. Instructions are given in both languages, English and Gujarati, and, later on only in Gujarati. Explanations are provided in English.
We hope to keep the course open. Further material will be added and will be made available to the learner. The learner is advised to first complete the course.
ALL AND IS AVAILABLE FREE OF COST.
