- One should avoid repeating lines while writing and putting up point to point answers to make the answer look more beautiful.
- Students should try communicating in Hindi more often to develop a better fluency in the subject for both reading and writing skills.
- For writing essays, students should always choose a wise and suitable topic. Then they should divide the whole essay into three parts. The first part should include the introduction of the topic. The second part should include details about the topic and the last part should include a suitable conclusion.
- Students should avoid using tough words without knowing their actual meanings. It might lead to alteration of the meaning and hence loss of marks.
- Sample papers and previous year question papers play a key role. It helps the students to know the pattern of the question paper, which section holds how many marks and also about the type of questions to be asked. Also, the topics of the writing skill section are sometimes repeated in the exams. Therefore, it is very beneficial for the students if they practice from the previous question papers.
The Hindi language is always believed to play a central role in learning. No matter what the subject area, students learn new concepts when they listen, talk, read and write about what they are learning. Speaking and writing reflect the thinking process that is taking place in the student’s mind. If their writing is poor, then their learning is poor. Therefore, it is important to focus on the subject in order to improve their writing skills.
