Hindi/Urdu Levels
In order to evaluate our students’ progress, we classify our courses along the lines of CEFR, i.e. A1 – C2 levels. This system is accepted by an increasing number of organisations across the Delhi NCR. The British High Commission, for example, recognises our certificates and grades their staff accordingly.

Below a brief summary of the first CEFR equivalent levels of Hindi/Urdu.

A1 Equivalent Level:

    • Know to read and write in Devanagari (Hindi) script
    • Familiarity with basic grammar (e.g. present, past and future tenses)
    • Converse about everyday activities & oneself for 5-10 minutes
    • Handling everyday situations with confidence and cultural understanding

A2 Equivalent Level:

    • Increased fluency reading and writing Devanagari
    • Consolidated basic grammar, familiarity with more advanced constructions (e.g. passive, subjunctive, compound verbs)
    • Work with short excerpts from books, newspapers and poetry
    • Learn to talk about diverse topics in the Indian context (e.g. festivals, sports, folklore)

B1 Equivalent Level and Above:

    • Comfortably work with a variety of contemporary sources: newspapers, books, poetry
    • Use Hindi in professional environments e.g. discussing current events or history
    • Extend your vocabulary to talk about diverse topics of your interest

Time Required
Exactly how much time it takes to clear one CEFR equivalent level depends on a number of factors including the student’s experience with foreign languages and availabilities as well as course type chosen. In our experience, 40-60 hours per level is a realistic estimate.

Exams and Certificates
Many of our customers want to have their Hindi/Urdu skills certified after finishing their course with Language Must. Such certificates increase the feeling of achievement of learning a new language, contribute to your in-house learning and development programmes and provide additional motivation to participants to make the most of the course.

Language Must offers optional exams, to be taken at appropriate points throughout your course. Exams last for 2-3 hours (depending on level) and assess students’ speaking, reading, writing and listening comprehension skills. After successfully passing the exam, we will issue you a certificate stating your performance as well as your CEFR equivalence level.
