This course completes the development of the advanced beginner level of Hindi listening and reading comprehension skills and spoken and written communication skills. In relation to vocabulary you gain familiarity with how Hindi uses different ranges of words for the same idea according to the context in which people are speaking. Sentence constructions include looking at how to express ideas like one action happening while another is occurring, describing how actions are performed in different contexts, such as when narrating an account of events, and distinguishing between the active and passive modes of expression. Conversational contexts covered include talking about the Hindi film industry, travel inside and outside India and the role that Hindi plays in education. Cultural contexts described include, the importance of song, dance and music in Hindi cinema and pressures of life in modern Indian cities such as Mumbai. 

Learning Outcomes

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

  1. Display an understanding of, and use, formal and informal vocabulary registers.
  2. Understand and use a full range of complex sentences, including passive formations.
  3. Communicate in written and spoken contexts about wide-ranging issues such as cultural practices, politics, and society and be able to understand and compose short texts on topics such as employment and popular culture.
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of contemporary cultural, social, and political issues in India.
