Content

Urdu is an Indo-European language spoken by more than 60 million native speakers across South Asia. It is the national language in Pakistan and one of twenty-two officially recognized languages in India and spoken by millions as a lingua franca across South Asia. The goal of this course is to enable students to read, write, and converse in Urdu at an intermediate level. Each class period will be separated into segments for conversation, script, grammar and other activities using music, videos, and slides. Students are introduced to literature in Urdu from short stories, poetry and extracts from novels, to essays and newspaper articles. It will broaden vocabulary to cover a variety of conversational topics like travel, study, family, food, etc. The course incorporates films, videos, music and other teaching aides not only to improve students' language abilities but also to further educate students on culture, history, religion and politics of South Asia.
