Overview

I have a great passion for world languages and cultures. Being a creative person, I develop methodologies that encourage students to explore and learn, without depending entirely on their course materials. I am also a translator and have published a range of literary works including the biography of Steve Jobs. My hobbies are pencil sketching, painting, travel, chalk-carving and poetry writing. With my rich experience of 15 years, I have given shape to my novel concept, "Sahara Asia", a school that focuses on Asian languages and cultures. Recently, Sahara asia has tied up with two schools in Japan, which invite Indian students to pursue their various courses - Animation, Hotel management, Beauty Culture, IT, Japanese language studies, etc. Sahara Asia also supports students to take their Certification exams in Japanese and till now our results have been highly successful. Placement support is also available for deserving students. Other languages offered are Korean, Arabic, Malay and Indian regional (Hindi, etc.). These are Foundation Programs that equip students with general skills for effective everyday communication. For those interested, the script is also offered as a value add-on.

"1. Perhaps the most obvious advantage of online learning via skype is that we have incredible flexibility with our convenient schedule. 2. Lack of commute add an extra hour or two to our day that otherwise would have spent in transit, which we can spend in learning more classes or utilize in other works. 3. More comfort in learning through both Tamil & English medium of instruction which helps for better understanding & effective learning. 4. I like to share few highlights about the online class: a) Interactive session. b) Instructor able to provide more variety of examples which helps to gain rich learning. c) Tutor is very patient & cooperative in answering the queries during the classes. I enjoy each & every session through this online classes (SKYPE). Thank you Uma San. "

"Uma has a very distinctive and unique pedagogy which helps the student straight away go to practice of conversation and from there she brings you back to the theory. This is my opinion propels the student quickly into the practical aspects of communication, expression and usage which is so very vital in day to day applications including commercial and business transactions. I wish Uma who is a remarkable personality all the very best in all her endeavors. "

Japanese shares a lot of similarity with Indian regional languages. Whenever you learn a new grammar point, try to find an exact equivalent in your mother tongue (Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, etc.) and make a list of sample sentences in your notebook. By doing so, you can achieve almost 90% perfection. However,... ...more

If you have a Japanese friend, he/she can help you with the usage in daily conversation. Try listening to dialogues in Japanese (preferably with the script) and pay attention to those expressions using the grammar point you are learning at the moment. There are many good reference books available online. Try using as many as possible to learn the grammar perfectly. Each book has its own style of presentation - illustration, examples, sub-topics, dialogues, texts on specific topics, etc.
