The overall goal of this course is to prepare the students to a high proficiency level of Hindi/Urdu. This course is designed to further develop fluency in oral and written communication. In addition to the class, small-group activities, language and computer lab-sessions, the students are given individual assignment to work with native speakers from the community and report on their findings. The reading assignments are designed to teach extensive reading with broad understanding of the content to be used for oral presentations. The first and second year language sequence relies heavily on student interaction, partner activities and group work.
