Ever thought this before?
“Gujarati is my mother tongue, but we only speak in English
at home. How will my child ever learn to speak Gujarati?!”
Then learn Gujarati the fun way,
and sing and play with...
Teaching kids Gujarati
Gaa-o Gaa-o! Sing along to some old favourites and learn new Gujarati nursery rhymes with your little ones in these fun-filled classes, delivered both online via Zoom and physically in person in Hatch End, London!
Story time and activities with exciting props make these classes interactive and enjoyable too, giving you plenty of new material to practice at home.
All in a relaxed environment, either at your home, or in class where you can meet like-minded parents over a cup of chai!
We're all excited to get back into the classroom environment, but we all know we need to stay safe. At Gujutots, we've taken the following steps to ensure our return to physical classes is as safe as possible for us and our kids.
Following advice from the Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC) and Public Health England (PHE), as well as the local authority
* We have taken all reasonable steps to ensure the environment will be kept safe for those attending the classes by cleaning mats and props between classes and providing hand sanitiser
* The rooms will be kept well ventilated at all times
* You and your child are not required by law to wear a face covering, but please continue to do so if you so desire
* If you or your child show any coronavirus symptoms within 14 days before attending a class, please refrain from attending class, and follow Public Health England guidelines.
* Only one adult is permitted to attend class with each child.
* Appropriate risk assessments have been carried out by the venue
is all about exposing your child to Gujarati from an early age in a fun and engaging way to help make it a part of their everyday lives as they grow up.
And we all know that children learn best and most effectively through play, so is all about singing songs and listening to stories that children and parents recognise and love. This helps make speaking in Gujarati more natural so it can eventually become part of everyday vocabulary!
Seeing other children speak the language will help your child engage with Gujarati better. And the fun activities and songs to sing at home will help reinforce the words. And of course, coming along to the classes is an opportunity to meet like-minded parents, so you can practice together!
So come along and try out a class!

Your material and format was great! engaging, fun and non intimidating for parents like me who would say they are not overly confident with speaking Gujarati

I can't think of many improvements, as I've been to many classes and would put yours somewhere at the top!

The Gujutots CD's have some lovely tracks on them, including "Ek Hathu Bathak" and "Chalo Aapre Nursery E Jaiye" that will have you and your little one singing along and learning Gujarati without even realising it!
Some feedback from customers:
"My 4 year old is now speaking more Guju because of [Chalo Aapre Nursery E Jaiye song] than she ever has!"
"OMG we love love love it! We've been bopping to the music all the way home!"

The second CD in the Gujutots CD range was introduced to further the enjoyment of learning Gujarati.
With songs such as "Garba Gawo" and "Diwali Aaiwi", there is a fantastic opportunity for kids to learn about some Gujarati traditions through song! And "Bus na paidan" has proved to be a firm favourite for kids!
It also contains a lovely little activity booklet and the lyrics to the Swagatham and Aav Jo songs!
