Learn English through TeluguPrefaceThis book is a compilation of numerous lessons taught in thespecial English class of Sri Venkateswara Temple at Bridgewater,New Jersey, USA for our temple Priests, conducted several yearsago. The teachers included Ms. Ananth Gundapuneedi,Dr. Krishna Vanguri and Dr. A. R. Srinivasan. This project turnedout to be a tremendous success and since then, our priests are ableto handle spoken English.Hand-written notes were distributed to the priests in everyclass. We used these notes and tried our best to come up withspecial books to learn English through Gujarati (with the help ofMrs. Rekha Bhatt), Hindi (with the help of Mrs. Parvati Rajagopaland Dr. Ramendra Pandey), Kannada (with the help ofMr. Seshadri), Malayalam (with the help of Mr. BalaAndrapalliyal), Tamil (with the help of Dr. A. R. Srinivasan), andTelugu (with the help of Mr. Ramakrishna Dasika). Currently, Mr.Ramakrishna Dasika, Mr. Bala Andrapalliyal, and Dr. A. R.Srinivasan, are involved in computerizing these books (Tamil andTelugu). Very soon, more volunteers will join to prepare thesebooks for other languages.These books are designed to present the material in English,followed by a transliteration scheme and the meaning (written inthe language of choice). These Books will become wonderfullearning tools for our new priests in particular and our communityin general.HTCS – July 2010
