Our Activities

English

Learning by Locals currently offers two weekend English courses. The conversational English course meets on Saturdays to watch and discuss films and documentaries with strong social messages. Recent class topics have included sanitation and a plastic ocean. The grammar course meets on Sundays.

 

Computers

The computer class meets on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays for an hour. Students learn the basics of computer use as well as Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint.

 

Photography

Learning by Locals is lucky enough to have a local filmmaker and producer come in to teach a two hour photography course every Sunday. Students learn the technical mechanisms of photography, and take trips out to capture scenes in their wider Delhi community.

 

Workshops

Apart from the set classes, Learning by Locals also leads workshops on a number of topics, from communications to music. Recently we lead a communication workshop on giving and receiving feedback.

 

Field trips

About twice a month, our team takes students out on local field trips. Our favorite spot is Lodhi Gardens and we also take trips to see sites of historic importance in Old Delhi. We will soon expand beyond Delhiā€™s borders with an upcoming trip to Agra!
