Alternative to traditional instructor-led classroom teaching, Distance Learning Course in Nepali with correspondence instruction and on-line interactive lessons allow students to learn the language at their own pace from nearly anywhere and at any time, while reducing the time and cost associated with classroom learning.
Our Distance Learning Course in Nepali has been developed to dynamically adapt to the student’s individual learning styles and preferences. The courses are tailored to incorporate various methods into teaching and accommodate different learning styles, so that they can be a perfect fit for each student, regardless of their knowledge level or of what they have learnt previously. When taking lessons online, you receive your lessons on pdf format and interact with your teacher for further practice on a computer at home or at your office. You don’t have to commute across the city to meet your teacher. Not only does this free up time and energy that you need for other things in your busy life, but it also means you can take shorter lessons more frequently, which can be more effective for language learning. One of the major advantages of our online interactive lessons is the way they are conducted by our experienced tutors, which makes learning a foreign language an easy and enjoyable experience.
In order to take maximum benefit from the course (Distance Learning Course), the student’s daily learning activities will include the following:
- Learn at least 10 new vocabulary from the textbook and audio program.
- Interactive dialogues and conversation practice to master thinking and speaking in the new language.
- Listening and speaking activities to help the learner improve pronunciation and listening skills.
- Comprehensive grammar reference.
- Practice new grammar structure through the varieties of drill methods with the audio program.
Introduction of the new lesson:
The lessons are presented in interactive dialogues and conversation between two persons and comprehensive texts. The student should listen to the dialogue; its rhythm of the sentences and of the question and response forms, concentrating first on the overall intonation patterns before worrying about individual sounds. After listening to the dialogue, the student should repeat it after the informant utterance by utterance in order to practice to master thinking and speaking in new language.
Introduction of the vocabulary:
The new vocabulary is presented with the English translation in the beginning of each lesson. The student should study (memorize) them and listen to the audio format to get accuracy in pronunciation. If the student requires additional vocabulary, he/she can ask the teacher or consult with the reference book.
Understanding the grammar:
The explanation of each new grammar structure is provided in the lesson. If the explanation is not clear enough, the student can ask the teacher for more clarification when they meet the instructor for on-line class.
Because the face-to-face conversation with the bilingual person will be somewhat limited, care should be taken that at least thirty minutes (beside instructor led lesson) should be spent every day just speaking with the help of the audio program.
Evaluation and exercise: At the end of the lesson, the student should complete the exercise given in the lesson in written form and send it back to the teacher for correction. The on-going assessment of the course by both student and the teacher will be carried out throughout the course.
Reading and Writing:
Learning to read and write Devanagari Script is optional, but if the student is interested, it is taught from the beginning of the course. A Nepali font and the typing keys will be sent to the student, so that he/she can read and type the texts in Nepali script on the computer.
All the teaching/learning activities will be done through electronic media. However, the on-line interactive lessons are conducted through Skype or google hangout.
