Advanced Hindi-Urdu Language and Culture for Heritage Learners
HIUR 261
Fall 2021
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.

This course is specifically designed for heritage learners of Hindi and Urdu who have good proficiency in one or both of these languages. Such students may speak or merely understand the heritage language(s) and are, to some degree, bilingual in English and the heritage language.

The course can be tailored to the specific needs of learners of both Hindi and/or Urdu; the content of the course will be selected according to needs and requirements of each learner. For this purpose, a needs analysis will be conducted at the beginning of the semester to learn the students' proficiency level and interests.

As part of this class, students will not only learn the language and culture in the class but also get a chance to practice the language and familiarize themselves through language tables and a native peer from the target community. Students will visit cultural/community centers to get a feel for the language and culture in practice.
