In this course students can further develop their listening and reading comprehension skills and oral and written communication skills. Students can learn how stress and intonation are used in Hindi to emphasis and clarify what is being said. There will be opportunities to learn a range of basic structures, including all the main tenses, which allow learners to understand and speak about a range of situations related to their own everyday life. Contexts covered include, talking about likes and dislikes, pass times and occupations, days of the week, telling time, and topics such as talking about the weather. Studying in this course will also allow you to appreciate issues such as the cultural importance of family relationships.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Recognise and appropriately employ patterns of stress and emphasis in Hindi speech.
  2. Read and write Hindi with a correct understanding of word formation and an ability to write compound words and verb formations.
  3. Use an active vocabulary of around 1000 items and a passive vocabulary of 1500 items.
  4. Understand and be able to use a broad range of sentences, structures, and tenses related to the past, present and future for everyday situations in written and spoken Hindi.
  5. Communicate in contexts such as the everyday lives of students and Hindi speakers.
  6. Demonstrate an understanding of how Indian cultures and traditions influence communication.

Other Information

Proficiency equivalent: CEFR A1+

All students with previous 'language experience or exposure' are required to take a language placement test to determine their language proficiency in order to ensure enrolment into the language course at the most appropriate level. 

 

The Course Convenor, in consultation with the Language Convenor will move students into an appropriate level course if students are deemed to be of a different proficiency level. Students are also encouraged to consult their course convenors immediately upon if they find that their proficiency level differs from that expected by the course.


As language courses are sequential, this may mean that students can only commence their language course in the following semester.
