What Others Had To Say

Kathleen Marshall (Sutherland, Australia)

I had such a positive time in India, learning about the culture, the society, and the role of the NGOs but also aspects about myself that I hadn't realised before. It was a personal reflective journey that enabled me to gain another perspective on life on our planet. I've recommended the India Summer Program to many of my friends - people like me who are looking for something a bit more than a holiday on the beach.

Sun-Won Park (Incheon, South Korea)

I’m really enjoying my stay in Delhi and the people here are very hospitable. Frankly, the word hospitality is not enough to express Indian generosity. Only now I am realising that India in fact is a rich country. The people lead a simple lifestyle. But their family, friends and their culture enriches their lives immensely. Thank you for all of your support. Your effort and your program were critical to my India experience.

Kate Strathmann (Philadelphia, USA)

Knowledgeable, excellent teachers that do a good job of putting the language within a cultural context. My Hindi and ability to communicate in India has improved immensely during the 4 weeks I did the Summer Program!

Foo Hui Ting (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

When I came to India I had no idea what to expect. I was very ignorant of India's culture, and most of the aspects of the country. At home I often heard about the bad parts of the country. I was amazed to see that there were so many mistruths in circulation. India has opened my eyes to the realities of cultural diversity and it has given me the courage to face challenges alone. I feel so indebted!

Jan Verhoeven (Weert, Netherlands)

My time in India was one of the best experiences I've had, and I think it actually changed me to an extent, and placed me on the path I'm on now.

Huang Wenxin (Xiamen, China)

Not a single second I felt bored during my customised program in India. My favourite memories of my time here will be of my wonderful host family. The India Summer Program taught me many special things about Indian culture, but through getting to know my host family I came to appreciate their view of the world and current events. They taught me about their cooking, how to dance like an Indian, how to dress like an Indian, in fact, how to feel like an Indian.
