Mother Tongue Classes
We have been running the Bengali Mother Tongue Classes every Friday 5.00pm to 7.00pm. The classes are run by two tutors. An average 20 students are regularly attending the class and all of them are from the age group 5 - 15 years.
The main aim of this class is to develop the speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in Bengali, using different learning activities. The children are given class tests, performance reviews and also get involved with various Bengali Cultural Activities.
