Teaching and learning
Cambridge IGCSE Hindi as a Second Language is designed for learners who already have a working knowledge of the language and who want to consolidate their understanding in order to progress in their education or career. Through their studies, learners gain an understanding of how to use Hindi effectively in the type of situations, and Hindi-speaking environments, they will encounter in their daily lives.
The syllabus focuses on the linked language skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. Through their study of Cambridge IGCSE Hindi as a Second Language, learners can achieve a level of practical communication ideal for everyday use, which can also form the basis for further, more in-depth language study.
In response to feedback from our schools we are withdrawing the June exam series for Cambridge IGCSE Hindi as a Second Language (0549). The last June exam series for this subject will be in 2015. We communicated this change to schools in January 2014:
Syllabus 0549 will be included in UK performance tables for the last time in 2018.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
There are no updates for this syllabus
