HINDI (हिन्दी) LANGUAGE COURSES:

2023 TERM 1 CLASSES BEGIN THE WEEK OF MON 13 FEB 2023.

Study Hindi with EarthDiverse!

Our Introductory Hindi language courses begin with a focus on learning the Devanāgarī (देवनागरी) script and basic conversation and vocabulary. Subsequent Terms reinforce both reading and writing, and focus on grammar, conversation and vocabulary. Intermediate level courses focus on continued ability to read, write and converse, and offered additional grammar and vocabulary.

EarthDiverse currently offers the following Hindi language classes on a rotating and evolving basis, with new intakes of students in Hindi 101 beginning twice a year, in Term 1 (February) and again in Term 3 (July-August). 101 and 103 courses are offered in Terms 1 and 3 each year, and 102 and 104 courses are offered in Terms 2 & 4 each year. If you have some elementary understanding, you may consider starting in a 102 or 103 course as well. When completing one 8-week course, each cohort can begin advancing to the next course in the series.

Our Introductory Hindi 101 course focuses on teaching the Devanāgarī script, which can be useful for those wishing to learn Sanskrit (EarthDiverse will be offering Sanskrit courses in the very near future), and also for Urdu speakers that may wish to learn Devanāgarī. 

LOCATION: EarthDiverse, 401 Anglesea Street, Hamilton Central, Hamilton, on-line via Zoom, or through video recordings of our live-streamed sessions posted 1-2 days after each class.

DISTANCE-LEARNING OPTIONS: Our Hindi courses offer distance learning options for those unable to attend classes in-person. Live-streamed classes are available via free Zoom software, or those unable to attend the date and time of the actual class sessions can watch the live-recorded video sessions on their computers, laptops, tablets or mobile devices and study at their own pace. These recorded sessions will be available soon after each class finishes so that you may watch the recorded video via any web-browser at your leisure. Your instructor will provide details on how to access your classes before your course begins.
