Intermediate Hindi is a selection of teaching materials for teaching Hindi as a second or foreign language. It consists of a number of passages - mostly published materials for general reading designed to teach the grammatical points assigned for the intermediate level. The texts provide a wide range of vocabulary (including Indo-Aryan and Perso-Arabic near synonyms), a variety of topics suited for conversations among students, and typically South Asian Social and Cultural contexts. Each text is followed by a detailed glossary, grammatical explanations for selected constructions, notes on vocabulary and fixed expressions, and exercises and home work assignments. There are also sections on word study and pronunciation. Each volume represents one semester (approximately 48 hours) of classroom instruction.
