उच्च हिन्दी पाठ्यक्रम (A COURSE IN ADVANCED HINDI)
Description
Preface

This is a textbook for a comprehensive course in Advanced Hindi. An expanded version with additional materials for various sections of the book is being worked on. This book is designed to serve as the foundation for a competency—based course. As such, it has several components to provide for the various requisite language skills, namely reading, writing, speaking, and listening. The reading part of the course will be divided into two sections-- intensive Reading and Non-intensive Reading. The book includes suitable texts for intensive reading, along with glossaries and grammatical explanations and exercises. The selections for intensive reading are all unmodified original texts so as to expose the students to authentic Hindi. They should provide for the necessary transition from an intermediate level textbook to an advanced textbook. The glossaries provide for most of the words in texts but not all of them, so as to encourage the students to try and deduce the meanings from the contexts, and also to use a dictionary when absolutely necessary. For the none—intensive part of the course, supplementary materials will be chosen and assigned in a structured way.

This book also provides material for teaching and improving speaking proficiency. It does so by including three kinds of oral materials, namely Situational Conversation, Oral Presentation on assigned topics, and Simultaneous Oral Translation.

The section on writing in this course is in addition to whatever written exercises may be necessary as part of the intensive reading of texts. it is designed to provide students with thematically organized specialized vocabulary on the basis of which they can write coherent paragraphs on those themes in free composition. Format—related writing (such as personal and professional letters, job applications, and the like) will also be assigned.

Listening is an extremely important skill which also needs to be taught and learned in a structured way. Audio—visual materials, with or without scripts, should be used as part of a course so designed as to provide for extensive listening exposure to varied materials (talks, dialogues, songs, TV or movie segments) and for the testing of listening comprehension.

In conclusion, I would like to acknowledge the cooperation of those friends and colleagues who have helped in one way or another to make this textbook possible. My participation in the preparation and teaching of a special competency—based course in Advanced Hindi in the summer of IQB6 with Professor Mahindra Verma and Dr. Narendra Sinha provided a number of ideas and materials which have been incorporated here. Consultation with Professor Yamuna Kachru has resulted in the inclusion of the play “Ande ke Chilke" and the story "Mard" with her glossaries. The pre-final version of the book was looked at and commented on by Professor Peter E. Hook. I have benefited from all these suggestions but I alone am responsible for whatever shortcomings are still there and are in need of further improvement. All those students of mine on whom most of these materials were tried in class and who gave me helpful feedback are deserving of my gratitude. Special mention must, however, be made of Randal Alain Everts, who spared me a lot of legwork by running to the library for the needed reference materials. I have appreciated Mithilesh Mishra’s suggestions in regard to some textual questions. Griffith A. Chaussee and later Mika Fukuda`s contributions have been absolutely invaluable in that in spite of various academic and personal concerns, they undertook the typing of the manuscript and have done such a beautiful job. Mika Fukuda also took care to make page and line format adjustments wherever necessary to make the final product more consistent and aesthetically pleasing. The Department of South Asian Studies has been very supportive of this project. I am extremely grateful to Professor David Knipe for his encouragement, to Professor Joseph Elder for his support, and to Sharon Dickson for her ungrudging cooperation.

About the Book:

This book is designed to serve as a foundation for a competency-based course in Advanced in Hindi for students of Hindi as a second Language. It is also appropriate or those generally interested in such aspects of language control as intensive reading of authentic textual materials of literary significance, oral production (involving situational conversation, oral presentation, and simultaneous translation), and structured writing using thematic vocabulary. Such aspects of a competency-based language course as advanced listening comprehension and rapid non-intensive reading can be strengthened with the use of supplementary materials in conjunction with this textbook. Attention drawn in this book to the structural strategies of the more productive constructions and expressions, as well as derivational devices and collocational constraints peculiar to authentic Hindi texts, should also be helpful in enhancing these skills.

Testimonials
I have always been delighted with your excellent service and variety of items.
James, USA

Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
