Volunteer Teachers S Dixit, N Pande, and A Kumar
2011-2012 Term
Tallahassee, Florida, USA

On Saturday, July 09, 2011 a group of volunteers from the Tallahassee Indian community headed by Santosh, Namit and Atul started Hindi classes for the children (and adults) of Tallahassee. It was organized by S Dixit and his team. The idea was to teach Hindi language basics like alphabets, words, common greetings and spoken sentences to any and everyone who is willing to come for one hour per week (regularly). The first class met the Leon County Leroy Collins Public Library meeting Room A on Saturday, July 09, 2011 between 10 and 11 AM. About dozen kids, some adults (including VTS and I attended) the first class. The structure of the class was as follows:

1. Prayer - 5 Minutes
2. New Topic Alphabets - 15 Minutes
  • Next class onwards this will be review and recap of last week's lesson
3. New Topic - 15 Minutes
4. Numbers - 5 Minutes
5. Story/Audio/Video - 10 minutes
6. Indian National Anthem -5 Minutes

The second class met at the Northeast Branch Library of the Leon County Public Library system between 10 and 11 AM. During this class we recapped some of what we learned and started to learn more alphabets and and writing them. Shown below are pictures from the second class held on July 16, 2011 at NEB LCPL.

 I have prepared some Hindi reading and writing materials as a student and a learner (since I know how to read and write Hindi since 1976) for the Learn Hindi class. I have forwarded the materials to the teacher S Dixit. Here I am sharing this with others as well. Materials presented here include: Hindi alphabets, Hindu prayer, Hindi poem, Hindi rhyme, and two-letter Hindi words.
  • What Hindi Alphabet is it? [Random order. A pdf file]. This Power Point presentation has over 20 slides. As you go through the presentation in each slide one after another four Hindi letters (in random order) will appear. The Hindi teacher can put one letter and ask the student to identify and pronounce the letter. If you need the animated original .pptx, contact me at: somabhanu [@] gmail.com
  • Tumi ho mata pita tumi ho [Hindu prayer]: Lyrics in Hindi, in English and translation in English
  • Machli Rani Sun Sun Sun [pdf]. Hindi poem for kids with lyrics in Hindi, transliterated in English, and meaning in English
  • Chanda Maama Door Ke [pdf]. Hindi poem for kids with lyrics in Hindi, transliterated in English, and meaning in English
  • What Hindi Word is it? [Random order. A pdf file]. This Power Point presentation has over 20 slides. As you go through the presentation in each slide one after another two Hindi words (in random order) will appear. The Hindi teacher can put one word at a time  and ask the student to identify and pronounce the word. Then the meaning of the word in English will appear. This will reinforce the Hindi word and its English meaning. If you need the animated original .pptx, contact me at: somabhanu [@] gmail.com
