Hindi Beginners

Hindi – Beginners

Beginners’ Classes in Hindi aim to provide the “How, What & Why” of Hindi Language to the hitherto unbeknownst. Focus would be on Hindi words, structure and functional understandings of “Directions, Shopping, Food” (in India) with insights into the colloquial “day-to-day chit-chat”. Ultimate goal is to comprehend the construction of basic phrases/sentences & slowly begin to hold minutes of conversation and in the process decode how Indians speak Hindi (& Indian English) Jokes, humor and a balanced perspective to life in India are (just) some extra bonuses!

Three separate sessions will be offered this semester.
