      ARUDH ARCOT, Advanced Basic 1
    • I still vividly remember my days at BKM Tamil School. As a child, Tamil school was a great opportunity to meet the Tamil community from all around Houston, which came together to teach me and other first generation Indian-American children how to read, write, and speak Tamil. Initially, I felt that learning Tamil was very difficult but the dedication of my teachers helped tremendously. Each year I improved. …

    • As a child who grew up in America, I found it difficult to incorporate reading and writing in my native language, Tamil, into my daily life. There was really no need to read, write, and speak another language other than English. Thanks to BKM Tamil School and the help of my parents, I was able to learn how to read and write in Tamil with ease.
