What local dialects are spoken where I could/would be teaching? Basic Hindi? Gujarati? I have deep interest in India in general and would love to teach there long-term. This would be a good chance for me to see what it would be like! Also, if I did join this program, could it help me get a long-term job there or somewhere similar? It will be a while before I can save up enough money to go, but I can't wait until I can finally sign up for this!
Anuragk Gupta Oct 09, 2015 at 01:58 AM

Namaste Amy, the local dialects spoken is Rajasthani and Hindi. If you are interested being an expat please speak to our travel desk. You are at anytime welcome to join this program and explore the possibilities. kindest Regards Anuragk
Amy OBrien Oct 09, 2015 at 01:38 PM

Dhanyavaad, Anuragk! I just hope I am not too young for these programs. I don't think I could convince the elders in my family to do something like this. If I CAN go, though, I will save money and practice the dialects and one day join this program!

Some important information we would like to provide you based on frequently asked Questions.
1. Weather: September and October are moderate and sunny. Say 88’F in noon. November onwards it gets cooler. For those visiting in January, February- light woollens are recommended.
2. Dress code in School: Sober decent dressing which may include skirts, trousers, Jeans.
3. Suggestive: In the cities like Delhi, Jaipur city and Agra use mosquito repelling cream or spray. Precautionary measures also suggest not eating raw cut salads and fruits from streets and hotels. Please drink bottled water only while in India.
4. Supplies: Presently we have ample supplies, no need to carry books etc. if you feel that somethings are required after observing the school. Road Scholar provides INR 500 to each of you to buy required supplies. Yet if you feel to bring something for the children, the most praised gift is candy.
5. Cell Phones: Road scholar provides you with a cell-phone in Delhi which you would be carrying throughout the program. You can contact us anytime 24x7 whenever you need our assistance.
6. For Revisiting Participants: From this year Road Scholar has designed a new itinerary so that you are not repeating the whole thing. Please do contact the Travel desk for more information.

Hi Judy, Yes, I've signed up for that time frame. I will be in India for a couple of weeks before the program starts and will go home after.

Dear Anuragk, Should I be able to go in January or February of 2016, how many people are likely to be on this trip? Do you have specific suggestions for study aids that I might be advised to bring from the U.S? Is there a way to play CD's for songs, or is that an impractical d

Anuragk Gupta May 05, 2015 at 05:21 AM

Dear sir/mam, You can definately visit in January or February 2016, usually we have small groups here ,to a maximum number of 8 participants in a group till now. Presently we have just started a new school session and I would like to inform you that we presently have sufficient teaching aids here. However you may like to bring few story books and rather carrying CD's it would be a good Idea to carry song in a pen drive. which can be played here in our laptop.
Anuragk Gupta May 05, 2015 at 05:23 AM

Please be free to ask any other details would like to know. Kindest Regards, Anuragk

Dear Anuragk, I hope to figure out how to get some kid's music on a pen drive. My computer is MAC. Will that work? Thanks, Lois
Anuragk Gupta Sep 29, 2015 at 10:38 AM

Dear Lois, definately it will work. Regards, Anuragk

Just came back from this trip and it was wonderful. Would love to do it all over again. Any of you planning to take it has a very special time ahead of you. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. It was truly a fantastic experience -- a trip of a lifetime.
Barbara Lockwood Sep 25, 2015 at 03:02 PM

Gloria..can't tell if my last comment went through. So again, how was it being a solo traveler? Did the group go together on the metro and train trips?
Gloria Friedman Sep 25, 2015 at 05:29 PM

I wasn't a solo traveler. I came with a friend but I am returning with a woman who was on the trip alone. I would not hesitate to take it alon.e The group went together on the metro and train trips. We were very well taken care of.
