Hindi Language

The Hindi Language Program was first introduced at Lyndhurst Secondary College in 2019. Since then, we have been expanding the program across the school and now have full-time Hindi teachers employed at our college. Our staff not only deliver lessons but also engage and promote integrated language learning with the study of Indian culture. We design classes and activities according to important Indian festivals throughout the calendar year. Learning Hindi helps student fully embrace the culture of India, including its exotic poetry, literature, wisdom, belief system and philosophy.

The Hindi Program provides instruction in all four language skills – reading, writing, speaking, and listening. The program uses carefully designed learning activities that provide exposure to the rich culture of India and opportunities to explore the cultural context of the language, including crafts, yoga, music, and dance.

Students studying Hindi will develop their Hindi vocabulary and confidently communicate with more people around the world. Over half a billion people around the globe speak Hindi, making it the second most spoken language on Earth. It is also the official language of India.

Apart from learning Hindi, students also learn about cultural festivals and celebrations like Holi (Festival of Colours), Diwali (Festival of Lights), International Day of Yoga (Yoga and Mindfulness), Raksha Bandhan (Brother-sister relationships), history, culture, and traditions around the world. They also learn about famous people of India and their contributions to the world. In addition, students are exposed to Henna Art/Rangoli, food, drawing/colouring/Folk dances of India, Music, and movements etc.

Hindi is spoken by substantial populations in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, the UK, USA, and Australia. It is linguistically related to Urdu, the official language of Pakistan and relates to Bengali and Punjabi. Hindi also uses the same script and shares many elements of vocabulary with Sanskrit. People who can fluently speak and write Hindi are actively recruited for South Asia companies as well as companies internationally.

Lyndhurst Secondary College is pleased to support your child in their development of bilingual and multilingual skills through our Hindi language program. Many studies suggest that being bilingual helps improve multitasking, listening, and hearing skills, and memory. So regardless of that language, learning a new language is always beneficial to your brain.
