Interviews with people in different languages, mostly rarer ones. Some are in English. Mostly there to give a cultural perspective. The rest of the site contains syllabi among other things.

rdearman, thank you for updating the “Master List of Resources” thread that reineke began some years ago. When you find the time – no rush, here – perhaps you could insert the following link into the “Other Languages” sub-section. Thank you, in advance.

Speakeasy has kindly created these two resources. I have no editing privileges and I cannot add these lists to the first post:

Persian (Farsi, Dari, Tajik)
LINK: https://forum.language-learners.org/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=11874

Filipino (Tagalog)
LINK: https://forum.language-learners.org/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=11613

I like my Persian resources better but I can see why you might include his list in the first post.

I wanted to make the edits but the edit button is missing from my post. Including the list by replying here is already something and the prospective learners are encouraged to use the search button.

School Textbooks in Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Urdu, Tamil, and Other Indian Languages
verdastelo wrote:This is a post for people who are interested in the languages of India and are looking for some authentic texts for children. I link to the textbooks used in Indian schools. You can use the language textbooks to read literature and subject textbooks to explore how students in India study mathematics, science, programming, or history. Most textbooks are of high-quality, but you might find some oddballs, such as a Tamil Nadu textbook in English that presents the existence of Lemuria as a valid scientific hypothesis and a textbook from Gujarat (I tried to find but failed) which was reported by BBC to compare white people to an undercooked roti, black people to an overbaked roti, and brown people (Indians) to a perfectly baked roti.

NOTES ON LANGUAGES

  1. Most states allow students to select a language of instruction.
  2. The students can choose between the language of the state, Hindi, or English. Sometimes, they can opt to study in a school where the medium of instruction is the language of a neighbouring state. For example, Telugu textbooks in Tamil Nadu. Thsoe who can afford it, always choose English.
  3. Most students study three languages: the language of the state, Hindi, and English. Sanskrit is a popular fourth language and is available in all the Indian states; with the possible exception of Jammu and Kashmir which happens to be Muslim-majority and the Seven Sister States which haven't yet been fully Indianised; which means that Sanskrit, the Vedas, and the caste system don't have much of an influence.
  4. While students can study in their mother tongue in school, the only way to become an engineer, doctor, programmer, historian, journalist, or to obtain higher education is to study in English. Almost all the universities teach exclusively in English.

NOTES ON EDUCATION

  1. School education is state matter in India. The central government creates textbooks for the Union Territories. Schools outside the Union Territories can align their curriculum with the state or with the central government.

THE LANGUAGES IN PARENTHESES ARE THE MEDIUM OF INSTRUCTION.

India

  • India (Hindi, Urdu, and English)

North India


East India


West India


Central India

  • Nothing for now.

South India

  • Tamil Nadu (Tamil, English, Telugu, and other languages)
  • Telangana (Telugu, English, Urdu, Hindi, and others)
  • Andhra Pradesh (Telugu, Hindi, English, and others)**
  • Kerala (Malyalam, English, Tamil, and Kannada)
  • Karnatka (Kannada, English, Hindi, and others)

This list is not comprehensive. The website of the Jammu and Kashmir State Education Board is down right now, Manipur lists the textbooks but you have to pay to get them, and Haryana is busy displaying messages from ministers. I will update this post when I find links to those websites.

* = Not all the books are listed.
** = Starting this year, Andhra Pradesh plans to use only English in schools. The state's language, Telugu, will be only be taught as a subject (like a foreign language). The medium of instruction will be English.
