We at Dawn English Academy have designed special courses in Hindi & Punjabi language that help you to learn these wonderful languages. While designing these courses we have taken greatest care of the fact, that these courses are intended for people or students who do not belong to the Hindi or Punjabi speaking regions.
Hindi is counted among the Indo-Aryan languages. It is spoken in most of the states of northern and central India. Hindi is closely related to the Urdu language that is primarily spoken in Pakistan. For all intents and purposes, the two languages are almost identical. The crucial difference is in the writing system. Hindi is written in Devanagari. On the other hand, Urdu uses the Arabic semiotic system. Distinctive for Hindi are the many dialects. These differ, sometimes strongly, from one another due to the country's size. Hindi is the native language of 370 million people.
An additional 150 million people are proficient in Hindi as a second language. With that, Hindi is among the most spoken languages of the world. It is in second place after Chinese. So it comes before Spanish and English! And India's influence in the world is growing rapidly!
Punjabi is counted among the Indo-Iranian languages. It is spoken natively by 130 million people. The majority of those people live in Pakistan. However, it is also spoken in the Indian state of Punjab. Punjabi is hardly ever used as a written language in Pakistan. It is different in India because there the language holds an official status. Punjabi is written in its own script. It also has a very long literary tradition. Texts have been found that are almost 1000 years old. Punjabi is also very interesting from a phonological point of view.
This is because it is a tonal language. In tonal languages, the pitch of the accented syllable changes their meaning. In Punjabi, the accented syllable can take on three different pitches. That is very unusual for Indo-European languages. That makes Punjabi that much more appealing!
This course has planned in association with experienced instructors, who have expertise in teaching foreign students whose native language is not Hindi or Punjabi. This course has planned with enough flexibility in terms of duration that mainly depends on the interest of student and availability of trainer.
