Hindi and Urdu Language Teacher Training at NYU, July 6-17

After a successful program in the summer of 2008, NYU will offer for the second time a Summer Teacher Training Program July 6-17.


This is an intensive residential program designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of current and prospective school, community and college teachers of Hindi and Urdu languages. It creates a learning-by-doing environment.

Participants with no training background learn the most-up-to-date teaching methodologies, based on standards, projects and communication and are required to develop, observe and critique classroom procedures, strategies and teaching techniques. The program includes a cultural component whereby participants learn how to use the resources available in the community environment.

Participants, who have received STARTALK or equivalent training, will learn essential principles of curriculum development and activity design on the Hindi/Urdu Standards Manual. The course places emphasis on pedagogical grammar, material development and adaptation, and assessment.
