The 2012 Hindi Summer School Participants and Peter Friedlander and
Veena Chopra, February 9 2012
||Brief details of the subject
||The first assignment to print out (word.doc)
Hindi 1: textbook
|| the textbook we will use on the summer school, you will get a
print copy when you arrive at the summer school as well. But for
now it would be good to have a look at this and get an impression
of the materials we will be studying. Audio files to accompany the
textbook will be available on a CD at the summer school.
||A rough guide to what we will be doing over the summer school.
Depending on circumstances its also possible that we will alter
this program a bit to get the most out of the summer school.
|Introduction to Hindi
||myself talking about
Hindi and a powerpoint
of some images to go with it. A general introduction to the
topic of 'what is Hindi'?
to Hindi Script
||a pdf file of an introduction to Hindi script and an
audio file to accompany it. A useful way to familiarise yourself
with one of the aspects of what we will be learning in the summer
|Hindi Flash Cards
||A pdf file of a set of flashcards to print out, they print very
well onto Avery Business cards, but also print onto any kind of
paper or card, take care as you make them up to write the correct
transliteration on the back of each card, its indicated at the sides
of the cards.
||Some pages from an old book, unfortunately I have lost its name
and title, about how to draw really lovely calligraphic forms of
Hindi. Its not something we will do much of in the summer school
but it is interesting to see how Hindi was drawn traditionally.
||A fantastically useful resource commissioned by SOAS to go with
Teach Yourself Hindi. It combines animated versions of the characters
and audio in a wonderful way.
||Another great resource, from ANU, showing how to move your tongue
and the mechanism of how your mouth works when pronouncing Hindi
La Trobe's Franklin St Campus
