Department of Hindi
The Hindi language (Hindi course B of the CBSE curriculum) is taught at ENS as a compulsory subject from Grade 1 to 10. Its relevance in the 21st century is unprecedented considering India's increasing prominence in the affairs of the world today and the changing nature of India's stature in influencing current world political trends. Language holds an inherent part in defining our identity and we at The Emirates National School uphold the significance of our National Language in our student's learning curriculum. We instruct students to master the four language skills (listening, reading, writing and speaking) along with developing their cognitive, creative and interpretive skills.
The Hindi faculty consists of seventeen qualified and committed teachers and we have planned the Hindi curriculum based on the child's ability to learn and use skills imparted in each stage of their learning process. Our syllabus is structured according to the requirements of the CBSE CCE system and include as much student teacher interaction and participation as possible. Today, our learning modes have shifted from the taught mode to an activity based board ensuring whatever skills we teach are strongly imbibed by the student.
