Most Urdu textbooks are written in a conventional style, with the result that children are gradually losing interest in the subject. To mitigate this trend, a bouquet of colourful and fragrant blossoms has been gathered from the vast territories of Urdu and is being presented here.
Urdu ka Guldasta is a series of colourful and stimulating textbooks for classes Pre-Primary to 8. In this series, phonics and other methodologies that develop language skills effectively, as well as lessons based on imaginative new themes, enhance children's proficiency.
Each book in the series contains a Teaching Guide and a complete schedule of curricular objectives which will allow the teacher to understand the series and help to explain it to her/his pupils.
