About Karadi Path

  • Children in India are capable of achieving substantially higher levels of language proficiency than what they currently atta The benchmarks have been lowered primarily because of the unnatural way in which  language is taught in schools. When a child  picks  up a language naturally, the learning is easy and  efficient. Karadi Path is an indigenously developed methodology for language-learning based on the unique Indian  experience of multilingualism. It mimics  the natural language-acquisition process, and  has  successfully adapted the same into the classroom environment.
  • India’s unique linguistic diversity allows  a child  to pick up multiple languages from  the environment with consummate ease when he or she moves from  one region to another within the country. For the last 15 years, the Karadi Path Education Company has  been researching this incredible phenomenon and  has  developed a comprehension driven approach that mimics  the way one learns their mother tongue or any other language naturally from  the environment. Through this derivative process, the child  learns to predict not just the meaning of words  in context, but also  the structure of the language. Karadi Path does this through a carefully designed set of exercises and  experiences in the classroom, that help the child  understand the nuances of English.
  • The company was founded in 2010 with the mission to ‘Provide High Impact Low Cost Programs that Deliver English Proficiency to Children and  Adults Through the indigenously developed Karadi Path methodology’. The methodology represents a revolutionary solution for English language learning even in environments where the language is not supported. The Karadi path programmes are an outcome of 15 years of innovation, experimentation and research.
