Introductory Hindi Classes at American University
Pooja Tilvawala (Hindi 2016), 2018 ADF recipient, hosted a 10-class lecture series on introductory Hindi for students at American University, which does not offer courses in Hindi. The series was supported by the Center for Language Exploration, Acquisition, and Research at AU and co-taught by Pooja and another teacher. This project grew out of a desire to demonstrate to AU that Hindi study was in demand and follows Pooja’s creation of a student group in 2015, Namaste AU, which is dedicated to bringing Hindi to AU. the 14 AU students participated in the series, which taught the basics of Hindi script and sounds, reading, learning basic essential vocabulary and phrases, and culminated in a cooking class.
