In advanced level A, students get the opportunity to practice the Hindi that they learned in the previous level. This course enhances the student’s knowledge of Hindi in expanded forms. The student’s Hindi skills grow as they increase their fluency and develop the ability to narrate stories, write dictation, and use various advanced grammatical constructions.
Focus of the course
This course covers a wide range of different perfective tenses, including with special instructions on transitive and intransitive verbs; conjunct verbs; “to be” verbs with होना; models verbs such as सकना, पाना, and चुकना; different को constructions with special attention on मिलना ,लगना, and चाहिए; verb stem +कर constructions; relative and co-relative constructions; and much more.
For this course we use our own grammar instructions and in-house handouts. We also draw on select stories for readings and provide texts to work on after studying particular grammatical constructions.
I also recommend these books for students’ reference:
