We are a non-profit body dedicated to the teaching of Hindi. We run Hindi classes in Singapore, primarily for school-going children but also for adults at basic, intermediate and advanced levels. We have been operational since Jan 1990.
With more than 2,100 students, we are the biggest Hindi-language institution in Singapore and one of the largest institutions in the world dedicated to the teaching of the Hindi language. Classes are held at seven Hindi Centres and fifty-four schools participating in a Parallel Hindi Programme (PHP). They cover the entire spectrum of formal general Hindi education in Singapore, from Pre-Primary to Pre-University (ages 4 and up). Classes at the Hindi Centres are held once a week, either on Saturday mornings or afternoons. Classes in the PHP are held at the schools themselves during second-language periods.
The Hindi Society is run completely by volunteers; it is part of the self-help initiative that the Hindi-speaking community has embarked upon to enable students to study Hindi and to preserve their cultural traditions. Teachers are paid an honorarium for their services.
