Radio popularising Urdu
New DelhI: Jamia Millia Islamia has been making its own contributions towards popularising Urdu. The univeristy has been offerering a short correspondence course for three decades that could be completed in as much time as one wishes on a modest fee of a little over Rs 50. The course has now been incorporated into the new Centre for Distance and Open Learning and the admission to the course is open throughout the the year in English and Hindi mediums.
The Director of the Urdu Correspondence, Mohammad Mian said that there has been an increase in the interest for the language in recent years, especially after the launch of private radio and TV channels, which is making people listen to more Urdu and learn the language. Now people are realising the sweetness of the language.
The course is designed for students who don’t have any previous knowledge of Urdu. Beginning with the recognition of alphabets, the course moves on to the formation of simple to complex words and then to the formation of simple and complex sentences. It takes about 40 classes for students before they start reading paragraphs.
