This is a good place to start to learn Hindi.  You may not do lesson 1 for extra credit, because we have done it in class.  But, you may go to lesson 2 or others to learn and get the extra credit.

Hindi Lesson 1 link.   You will need to provide the link that you actually used to help you when you present/perform.

To get the extra credit, you need to speak the Hindi sentence to the best of your ability. We will then check via the smartboard to see if you have done it correctly.    You will get 2 pts. extra credit per word learned.  If you are awesome, you could possibly earn 3 per word. 

The extra credit can not be done unless you have all of your missing work done for social studies class.
