STARTALK Hindi Audio-Visual Module Project

The STARTALK Hindi Audio-Visual Module Project introduces 36 thematic modules, which are based on real life situations with varied linguistic, social and cultural contents. The modules include situations in urban and rural locations with native speakers of different background, age and gender. Shot in Jaipur, its neighborhoods and Pushkar in July 2015, these video clips provide authentic samples of native speakers’ speech. They are unscripted, unrehearsed and non-sequential. The clips are short (one to three minutes), and offer samples of Hindi speech in the presentational and interpersonal modes of communication.
