Namaste! Welcome to London Hindi Meetup - a place for hindi speakers to meet.
All are welcome and we have members of all ages and backgrounds; native speakers who wish to chat in their own toungue, learners looking to practice and improove fluency or those whom learnt long ago and wish to keep their hindi ticking over. Begginers are welcome too though it would help if you know a few words or are working through a teach yourself book as we are not a teaching group as such, although everyone tries to help each other where they can.
We meet regularly around central London although on an 'ad hock' basis - keep an eye out for emails of new meets. We meet in cafes for hindi chat over a cup of chai, or out in the parks if the weather is nice. We also meet to celebrate the festivals (Divali, Holi, Vaisakhi and Eid). Other special events we have done in the past include film screenings, bollywood dancing, art galleries - but usually related to Hindi/Indian culture.
We try to encourage as much Hindi to be spoken as possible although we do slip into English on occasion (frequently!). Particularly on the smaller/quieter meets we try to have a Hindi activity to help us keep focused. Recently additions to our resources mean that in future you can expect activities such as poetry/short story readings and discussion as well as fun plays and skits for us to act out - all in Hindi!
