Primary Instructor:

Advanced Urdu I is for students who have completed at least two years of the study of Urdu or can show that they have attained that level of proficiency through a placement exam or an interview with the instructor. Students who have already taken third year are welcome to take the class, as the course will be structured so as to accommodate students at both the third and fourth year levels. Students who take the class this year will be eligible to take it again once more in the future.

To accommodate students at two different levels in the class, attention will be given to individual student interests, the rotation of class materials, and the use of a flexible structure in which students can participate in the class at either the third or fourth year level.

This course is intended to further students’ speaking and listening comprehension as well as increase their proficiency in reading and writing Urdu. Students will be introduced to a variety of Urdu styles and usages. We will read original Urdu literature, watch movies, and listen to audio materials in Urdu and will also discuss these materials in Urdu. Students will have an opportunity to acquire near native competence both in language structure and in language use. Grading will be based on attendance, participation, written assignments, and quizzes/tests.

Prerequisite: ASIANLAN 272 or consent of the instructor.
