Indian Languages Conference
21 November, 2018
The VSL recently hosted the inaugural conference for teachers of Indian languages. The conference had its antecedent in 2015 when Dr Peter Friedlander, Senior Lecture in Hindi at the Australian National University organised the first Hindi workshop. It was decided to extend this year’s conference to teachers of all Indian Languages and we offered to host it at the Victorian School of Languages in Thornbury. The speakers and participants represented both secondary and tertiary programs. Key-note speakers included the Indian Consul-General, Mr Rakesh Malhotra, Dr Peter Friedlander, Dr Surjeet Dhanji, a Researcher with the Australia-India Institute and the Victorian Minister or Multicultural Affairs, Robin Scott. A number of teachers and developers also spoke about recent materials they have developed in the languages of Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu.
