WELCOME TO KANNADA KALI
“ಎಲ್ಲಾದರು ಇರು, ಎಂತಾದರು ಇರು, ಎಂದೆಂದಿಗೂ ನೀ ಕನ್ನಡವಾಗಿರು”
As parents we always feel that our children should learn our Mother Tongue and experience the joy of expressing their emotions in Kannada Language.
With the intention to pass on the essence of Kannada language, culture, history, and basic literature to our kids in a fun filled teaching environment we started “Paatashaaley” – An activity center, in Jan 2018. Along with focus on Indian cultural heritage and tradition we also conduct Kannada Language classes to the children in our community.
