This course is designed to give students who are interested in learning Hindi, a taste of the basics for learning the Hindi language before committing to the longer course of study. There is no required prerequisite except an interest in learning Hindi! Please be aware that this course does ask students to spend time studying what they learn in class in order to progress and be able to fully participate in class. Students are required to interact verbally with the other students and the...
Students will increase their awareness of Hindi, its writing system as well as learning a simple introductory exchange. If students' interest is piqued they may then sign on for the sequel course.
I began studying Hindi in 2007 with a private tutor and continued to study Hindi at Indiana University as part of my India Studies degree. I have spent approximately 10 months in India at various times and places living with locals and honing my language skills. I tutored Hindi in 2019 and have been teaching Hindi at the TN Language Center since January 2020. In addition, I am a Kathak dance student and have been learning Kathak at Upasana Performing Arts Center, Nashville, TN over the past 11 years. I have also been a part of my dance school’s South Asian community since I began dancing Kathak and therefore have been able to gain additional cultural and historical comprehension as regards both Hindi/Urdu and South Asia. I have worked in Montessori classrooms as well as more traditional classrooms working with young children as well as teens. I bring my TEFL training as well as my experience teaching English as a foreign language to all my language classes. Additionally, having been a foreign language student myself I know the challenges that many learners face in acquiring a new language and seek to make new concepts-grammar, vocab, phonics-as accessible and as comprehensible as possible through various means-media, powerpoint, activities, drills-by whatever means possible! I love learning new things everyday and hope that my classes would pass along not only knowledge but the attitude that knowledge and learning are valuable and exciting!
Students will be asked to participate in a discussion forum after the first class as well as practicing their writing.
