Gujarati Vidhylay is our online Gujarati Language program.  Divided into five levels, our aim is to help children (and adults) speak the language with ease. Gujarati language classes are available at Beginner and Intermediate levels. As they progress, reading and writing are introduced and our intermediate-level students sometimes start writing short letters to parents and grandparents.
