IndiToy, Inc. an educational toy company, established in 2009 and located in Columbia, MD has developed a toy to learn Indian language easily. It provides educational fun for both children and parents (or adults) of any background without the need of a tutor. The languages are Marathi and Hindi and the product comes in the form of flash cards and practice charts, which allow one to learn the alphabet sounds with the help of common English illustrated words in an easy way to understand and remember them.
Compared to Spanish, French, German, Mandarin, Russian, and Latin taught in US schools both Marathi and Hindi can be learned at the same level as these current languages, as more and more Americans are moving to and living in India for work and education, mainly in Mumbai and Delhi, where these languages are major assets for local communication.
IndiToy, Inc., started with Marathi and Hindi because of the significance of these languages for those who live in Mumbai (the financial capital) as well as with Hindi being the national language and spoken in most parts of India. Learning both Marathi and Hindi are very similar and could only enhance communication skills of those who are planning to or moving to India, since the language barrier would be removed and students could freely converse with their professors while in office settings.
Although English is spoken in India, there are still some rural areas where English is considered a second or even a third language and in some cases, not even spoken that learning local languages of those areas can help locals realize that you have taken an interest in their culture.
IndiToy, Inc. has introduced their products into schools and day care centers, where children as young as four can start learning these languages, since it is well known that the human brain learning powers are at peak during the early stages of childhood. Kids can learn many languages when they are young and if parents expose them to different languages then there is a good chance that kids will remember the language when they grow up. It is proven that a child remembers 2 alphabets within the first hour of learning, which only indicates their accomplishment level by the age of 15.
Along with flash cards and practice charts, there is an active website (www.inditoy.com), which parents and students can access 24/7 to assist them in pronunciation. Later on, they will be able to learn through games and worksheets as well as take quizzes with instant results and feedback, so both parents and children can find out where they stand at that point.
IndiToy, Inc. feels that now is the best time to learn these languages because of the continuous influences of Indian culture in everyday life in the U.S. especially in media and technology. Going to a Bollywood movie such as “My Name is Khan” or “Karthik Calling Karthik,” you can focus more on what the scene is about rather than what they are saying, considering you understand them instead of reading the subtitles, which are very annoying.
Overall, learning Marathi and Hindi can only help those people who have a need, a craving or an interest in learning another language either for work or for school or simply because they want too.
