LINGUISTIC METHODOLOGY AND THE TEACHING OF HINDI.
APTE, MAHADEO L.
THE IDEAL SITUATION IN THE TEACHING OF HINDI TO AMERICAN STUDENTS SHOULD BE SUCH THAT--(1) THE TEACHER OF HINDI IS AWARE OF ALL THE LIKELY PROBLEMS ENGLISH SPEAKERS MAY FACE IN LEARNING HINDI, (2) THE TEACHER HAS DEVISED WAYS OF OVERCOMING THESE PROBLEMS, (3) HE HAS A HINDI TEXT WHICH IS ORGANIZED AND BASED ON THE RESULTS OF A CONTRASTIVE ANALYSIS OF HINDI AND ENGLISH AND A FREQUENCY ANALYSIS OF HINDI, IS GRADED IN TERMS OF DEGREES OF COMPLEXITY STARTING FROM THE SIMPLE STRUCTURES AND GOING ON TO MORE DIFFICULT ONES, AND IS FULL OF RELEVANT CULTURAL CONTENTS. THE AUTHOR POINTS OUT SOME PHONOLOGICAL AND SYNTACTICAL PROBLEMS WHICH AMERICANS LEARNING HINDI HAVE TO OVERCOME. HE ALSO EMPHASIZES THE NEED FOR AWARENESS OF THE DIFFERENCES AND SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THE STUDENT'S OWN CULTURE AND THAT OF THE LANGUAGE WHICH HE IS LEARNING. (AMM)
