Primary Instructor:

Continued study of Uzbek Language, with appropriate cultural background; further development of listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills.

The aim of this course is to continue instruction in the general knowledge of the Uzbek language, as it is spoken and written today. During the classes, the spoken language of educated native speakers, as well as the contemporary literary language that is being used in newspapers, books and other means of mass media will be emphasized. This course will increase students' knowledge of the sound system, alphabet and the basic structure and practical use of the Uzbek language. In addition, this course will introduce students to the Cyrillic alphabet, which, although not the official alphabet of the Uzbek language, is still widely used throughout Uzbekistan and among the Uzbeks of neighboring countries. Throughout the course, practice of all four language skills, listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing will be stressed extensively. Students will be exposed to authentic materials such as video clips and pictures showing the real cultural life of the Uzbek people during the classes. At the end of the course, students should be able to listen to more complex conversations, read and understand short and medium sized texts, engage in longer conversations on more complicated everyday topics, and write short, simple essays on familiar topics using the structures and vocabulary introduced in class.

The classroom instructor is Hulkar Matchon, lecturer of Uzbek language in OSU’s Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures. The class schedule will correspond to The Ohio State University academic calendar; therefore, the first day of class will be on Tuesday, August 22, 2017.
