An Active Approach to Hindi (Temporary Edition).
Sharma, D.N.; Stone, James W.
This preliminary edition of the Foreign Service Institute's text in elementary Hindi is intended to "make it possible for students to begin using Hindi, from the first hour of class, to obtain information and exchange opinions about topics which are important to them." It is based on Stevick's "Microwave" style of lesson organization, which emphasizes communicative use of each cultural element as soon as it appears. (See ED 012 897 for a description of the Microwave Approach.) All Hindi appears throughout in Devanagari script; grammatical explanations, notes to the teacher, and occasional glosses appear in English. (AMM)
