Hindi Language Course to be Taught in Offshore University

May 12, 2015 13:08 IST

    During the next academic year, the University of Montana in the United States have decided to introduce a Hindi learning course and appoint a Fulbright instructor from India to teach the subject. This would help students to learn and explore the rich language of India while being offshore.

    During the academic session of 2015-16, Gaurav Mishra who is a Fulbright Instructor would teach the Hindi language under the South & Southeast Asian Studies programme taught by University of Montana. He would reach the university by mid-August and teach a two-course sequence that would contain elementary Hindi. The course would begin in the fall semester and finish in the spring.

    According to UM Liberal Studies Professor, Ruth Vanita, “This is a rare honour and a big achievement because only four universities in the nation have been allotted Hindi instructors.”  Hindi language is also under consideration to become a regular academic subject in the university. Vanita further added that South & Southeast Asian Studies has further plans to extend the course and include a Fulbright instructor for the 2016-17 academic year. The course is expected to get more students in future years and help making the language more popular among the students in the university.

    The history of Hindi languages dates back to thousands of years and is an Indo-European language which has a connection through a common ancestor of European languages, which is English. It is almost completely phonetic, which signifies that the spoken words are similar to that of the written ones. Every letter in the alphabet of the language stands for a single sound.
