The region of Tamil Nadu in India is a delicate blend of rich culture and antique tradition that appeals to both natives and visitors from all over the world. Tamil is the native language of Tamil Nadu. Endowed with a well defined written grammar 2500 years ago, Tamil is one of the oldest known languages, and boasts many great classic literatures. It is an official language in many eastern nations including Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore.
Learning to read, write, speak, and sing in such a rich language, imbibing alongside the culture and tradition, all from native Tamil speaking instructors, is indeed a great experience!

Tamil classes are held every Sunday from 10:45am to 12.15pm at the Hindu Temple of Rochester. However, they are currently conducted remotely via virtual technology. The instructors are dedicated, knowledgeable, and volunteer their time to teach in a methodical way that has proven effective over many decades. Thendral Tamil School is currently fully affiliated with ITA (International Tamil Academy, a.k.a California Tamil Academy). This will enable certification each year and possibly a recognition for a foreign language course accreditation in future for the students.
