Student Proficiency Levels and Teaching Practice:
Students are divided into "Mazhalai", Nilai1, Nila2 and Nila3 based on their proficiency levels. In addition to learning to speak and write in Tamil, the students also learn the various aspects of Tamil culture and history. We have about 75 students enrolled in the 2016-2017 school year.
Here at Bridgewater, we emphasize that kids learn to speak and write Tamil in a fun way. We have found that students enjoy the Tamil class when we incorporate fun activities like Jeopardy, Hangman and Charades in Tamil. We add music/songs as a fun way to learn, and create teams to use it as incentive in the learning process. Parents are a big part of the learning as well. They not only support their children in learning Tamil, but also help with the homework of other students, take initiatives of various activities, come up with ideas for better learning, and direct the program for our Vidyalaya-day (our annual event where the students showcase what they have learnt). We are also proud to say that we have full attendance during our tests. Here are a few notable quotes from some of the parents:
"Of all the classes my son attends, Tamil
class has inched up all the way to the Top 2nd Place"
"My son wakes up at 5:30am all by himself to ensure that he scores the highest
in the test"
