Elementary Hindi II
GSAS 104
Spring 2025
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: HIUR 104

This course is a continuation of Elementary Hindi I. It offers a balanced treatment of speaking, listening comprehension, reading, writing skills, and desi culture.

At the end of the course, students will be able to communicate short, culturally appropriate messages on highly predictable, everyday topics that affect them directly. They will be able to produce lists and notes, primarily by writing words and phrases. They can provide limited formulaic information on simple forms and documents. These writers can reproduce practiced material to convey the simplest messages. In addition, they can transcribe familiar words or phrases, copy letters of the alphabet or syllables of a syllabary, or reproduce basic characters with some accuracy.

Students will get level-appropriate knowledge of the target culture, which is an essential ingredient of the course. All the material and activities will be presented through contextualized material. Students can understand key words, true aural cognates, and formulaic expressions that are highly contextualized and highly predictable, such as those found in introductions and basic courtesies. They will be able to understand words and phrases from simple questions, statements, and high-frequency commands.
