Students will be immersed in three modes of communication, as they learn to interpret instruction in culturally rich contexts (some familiar, some new), interact with the teachers and other learners while engaging in playful activities, and present their learning in the form of a brochure, documentary, poster, infomercial of their dream town.
Hindi will be used 100% of the time inside and outside the classroom.
