This new two-semester sequence develops students’ ability to speak, listen, read, and write at an intermediate level in a Central Asian language. The same course number may be used for courses of the same level. Each course will be offered according to student demand, and currently instruction will be delivered by using distance learning. Its aim is to provide students with an intermediate knowledge of Central Asian languages 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.

Intended Audience:

Undergraduates who want to develop the linguistic skills to continue their studies.
