I learned respecting elders with sir or ma'am and modest clothing will take you a long way in India. There is a great respect of teachers there especially. Always respect your teachers and mentors a lot and address anyone you don't know and especially if are or look older than you with "ji". For example if their name is Geeta you don't just say Geeta you will say Geeta Ji.

I loved our one week in South India. I learned that south and north Indians are two completely different people. We also went to a place where tribes lived and visited a school for tribal children funded by the Indian government. It was very eye-opening.

Excellent teaching at the Landour Language School, very helpful teachers who are very good at making students comfortable and accelerating their learning. Additionally, the living at LaVilla Bethany (particularly the provided meals) was very helpful and made the transition to India much easier.
