Annual Trips

In 2017 an educational trip to India was arranged by UK Hindi Samiti for the debate winners as well as other Hindi learners and teachers. The purpose of the trip was for the students to learn about Indian culture and History as well as improve their Hindi.

We visited the Banaras Hindu University and Sukhadia University in Udaipur. At both, students met with Hindi students and teachers to exchange views on how they can help each other to improve.

We also visited Jaliyan Wala Bagh & Wagah border in Amritsar, Stupas of Ashoka Maurya period at Sarnath and ÔÇťAnand Bhavan" - once home to first prime minister of Independent India and Sangam at Allahabad. Alongside those we visited various palaces and forts in Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur. Whilst in New Delhi a welcome was arranged by Aksharam an organisation promoting the Hindi language and Hindi literature in India. Finally, as a special treat we were invited to be on NDTV's famous chat show Hum Loge. The episode was a discussion with UK Hindi students about learning Hindi.

In 2016 a trip to Venice for the the debate winners as well as other Hindi learners and teachers was organised. This provided an opportunity for students to practice Hindi in an immersive and concentrated way.

In 2015 we organised a trip to Paris for the the debate winners as well as other Hindi learners and teachers. This was an opportunity for students to practice Hindi together for a few days.

UK Hindi Samiti has organised annual trips to India from 2001 to 2014 for competition winners.
