Hello and welcome to the Hindi/Urdu Learners and Speakers Meetup group. The Meetup for people who want to learn and practice Hindi and Urdu. Hindi-Urdu, sometimes referred to as Hindustani, is the second most widely spoken language in the world. Hindustani or Colloquial Hindi-Urdu as it is also called, is the language of Bollywood movies and songs. We welcome all learners and speakers of the language whether you call it Hindi, Urdu, Hindustani or Khari bol
This group is for learning and speaking Hindi-Urdu. We want to be friendly, open and non-judgemental in achieving our language aims. All are welcome and we have members of all ages and backgrounds; native speakers who wish to chat in their own tongue, learners looking to practice and become a little more fluent.
We meet every second Monday in Holborn, central London. If you want to meet elsewhere, or have an idea for a meet up, please suggest it on the page. We welcome any suggestions to help us achieve our aims and are want this to be a space for you to step up to make opportunities to connect with Hindi-Urdu speakers.
keep an eye out for emails of new meets. We meet in cafes for 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).
This is not a singles or dating group. We want to create an atmosphere where everyone is comfortable to meet and speak. We want a helpful and polite atmosphere to encourage us with our language goals, and to express our enjoyment of the language.
