ASIANLAN 216 is a continuation course of ASIANLAN 215. This course is designed to extend the knowledge of the students who can already read and write Hindi and have clear grammatical concepts. This course gives an opportunity to students to develop the four basic language skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing). This is a continuing proficiency based course which refines and expands previously acquired language skills in culturally authentic contexts. This course will focus on expanding vocabulary, mastering more complex grammatical structures such as causatives, conditional sentences, passive constructions, participles, compounds, and acquiring idiomatic expressions. The goal of this course is to increase the knowledge of Hindi grammar to an advanced level. Students will learn to understand and produce complex sentences with main and subordinate ideas. The focus is on developing formal vocabulary and discourse organization strategies used in written Hindi.

The course materials include instructional videos, segments of feature films, short stories, letters, magazine & newspaper and blog. Content and supporting language structures and vocabulary will be theme-based with outcomes measured in a variety of ways, including task-based activities that support effective communication around the theme.

By the end of the academic term, students will be able to:

  • Gain cultural insight based on language usage.
  • Gain confidence in using Hindi outside the classroom through regular interactions with Hindi speakers.
  • Talk about Indian festivals, customs and culture, register complaints, deal with emergencies, and express wishes.
