This advanced Central Asian language sequence is currently being offered through CIC/CourseShare. This new two-semester sequence develops students' ability to speak, listen, read, and write at a basic level in the Central Asian language of their choice. The same course number may be used for any appropriate language at the first-year level. Each course will be offered according to student demand, and currently instruction will be delivered via CIC by using distance learning from Indiana University. Its aim is to provide students with a basic knowledge of Central Asian languages; such as Uzbek, Kazakh, Uyghur, Pashto, or Tajik; as they are spoken and written today, along with exposure to the associated culture of Central Asia. The spoken language of educated native speakers, as well as the contemporary literary language as reflected in newspapers and journals will be emphasized throughout. This course will stress extensive practice in conversation, listening, reading, and writing, and English will be kept to a minimum. The goal is to enable students to read simple texts and carry on basic conversations with native speakers.

Course Requirements:

Regular written and oral exercises, quizzes, and midterm/final exams with written and oral components. No term papers or research exams.

Intended Audience:

Undergraduates or Graduate Students who have taken the introductory survey of the region and want to develop the linguistic skills to continue their studies.

Class Format:

Four to five hours per week in recitation format (Indiana sometimes designs courses to include one extra hour for undergraduates); in-class language instruction including grammatical explanations, cultural instruction, conversation practice, reading skills, and writing exercises.
