Primary Instructor:

Urdu is one of the major languages of South Asia. Though Urdu shares its grammar with Hindi, it differs in vocabulary and script. The presence of Perso-Arabic elements makes Urdu different as well as beautiful. ASIANLAN-171 is an introduction to the Urdu Language and the Nastaliq script. The course is designed to focus on learning the script with basic grammatical structure. It aims at learning and developing all the four basic skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension. Grading will be based on attendance, class participation, written homework assignments, dictations, and quizzes/tests. No prior knowledge of Urdu is expected.
