A Little Sunshine Story ~ Learning Panjabi

Speak, Read and Writer thru Funjabi Tuition ~ a unique teaching method for beginners of Panjabi

What is Funjabi Tuition?
Funjabi Tuition is a unique teaching method and full curriculum tak­ing complete beginners of Panjabi to become confident speakers, readers and writers. Created and taught by Panjabi tutor and author,  Kiran Lyall, a lot of Funjabi Tuition’s curriculum is based upon popular culture and interests, for example Lego.


Kiran says “The students I teach connect more with the likes of Panjabi MC and Lilly Singh, rather than traditional artists and themes that I love. One thing that has become most apparent since starting Funjabi Tuition is the sheer joy and con­fidence being bilingual brings to an individual”.

​Reading, writing & speaking:
Lessons are structured to include three areas of learning: reading, writing and speaking Panjabi. Funjabi Tuition aims for each student to achieve a basic level in all three areas. With some students achieving fluency in all three areas. 

Types of lessons:
Classroom Tuition and Online Tuition

The mother continued to tell me how on some nights they make up little stories based on the chapter themes and on some they simply like to recite the words. Dad joins in too! I was enlightened to hear how my 'little' book idea back in 2010 had inspired this family and especially their daughter in wanting to learn and love the language. One question I get asked all the time by parents is 'how can I help my child learn Panjabi?', well here are my top five tips... (follow the Five Tips here)
