    Summary

    The program will offer 91 hours of learner centered Hindi language learning and culture immersion experience to 86 early elementary to middle school participants (rising 1st to 8th graders). Major goal of the program will be to develop Hindi language competence of all participants (ranging from novice to intermediate level) by at least one higher sub level in three modes of communication. Participants will be placed in level and age- appropriate classes, based on their pre-program informal Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) assessment. Learners will develop Hindi language skills and cultural understanding by exploring program's overarching theme “Animal vs. Pet Culture- In India and USA”. We expect learners to be able to interact, verbally and in writing at higher sub level through gathering and sharing meaningful information on theme related topics. Theme based games, competitions, multimedia projects, hands-on native visual and performing arts projects will further provide all learners of varied need the opportunity to engage in meaningful communication, create and present collaborative products for peer assessment, and self reflection. They will be able to demonstrate their ability to use Hindi in real life situations through active interaction, interviews and collaboration with heritage/native language speakers, experts and authentic audience. The program will also provide continued Hindi language and culture learning opportunity to learners during its 20 week online-blended session (September 2019- March 2020).
