Abstract

 

This article describes how teachers of the Hindi language can diversify their lessons when teaching language to one or two-year students. The research is all about the usage of linguistic game, Sudoku, in Hindi lessons. The article from which we have made a start is titled “Learning to Hypothesize with Confidence through Sudoku Game Play”. It was written by Y.L. Teresa Ting, a teacher of the University of Calabria (Italy). The Hindi version of this game aims to stimulate interest among students in the study of complex grammar of the Hindi language, especially mastering the skills of using postpositions, which are not in their native language. This game is suitable both for a self-study student and a linguistic group.

 

Key words: Linguistic game, postpositions, active vocabulary, opportunities, non-trivial usage, relevant to Hindi teachers.
