Hindi Online Learning



This project has been developed with the support of an Academic Innovation Grant at the College of Liberal Arts, U of Minnesota-Twin Cities. I would like to express my gratitude to the CLA for providing the funding that enabled me to develop online language learning tools for Hindi-Urdu students at the U of Minnesota.


About the Project...

This project is focused on thematic vocabulary and noun components of Hindi/Urdu grammar. The purpose of this project is to enhance the learning outcomes of Hindi/Urdu students by incorporating interesting pictures and exercises into the language learning process. Introducing thematic vocabulary and noun components using pictures and video clips will enormously benefit students and positively impact their learning process in two ways:

  1. It will increase their knowledge about the subject, and build proficiency in the language.
  2. By looking at authentic pictures and video clips, students will be exposed to and learn about cultural elements of the target country. Thematic vocabulary will then be introduced along with exercises using pictures. This project will be used as complementary material to the Beginning Hindi/Urdu textbook. This project will benefit our Hindi students and students of Indian origin who are in the process of preparing for the Hindi proficiency test. Students with varying learning styles and study habits will remember the thematic vocabulary better with the online audio and pictures.
