Study the Urdu Language in 2020!
Our Introductory Urdu language classes begin in Term 1 with a focus on learning the Nastaʿlīq (نستعلیق) script and basic conversation, grammar and vocabulary. It is specifically designed for adults (and older teens) who do not know how to read, write or speak the Urdu language, who who are unfamiliar with the Nastaʿlīq script. Subsequent Terms reinforce both reading and writing, and focus on grammar, conversation and vocabulary.
Introductory Urdu 101 is being offered this year on Tuesday afternoons from 4:00-5:30pm. Term 1 classes begin on Tuesday 11 February 2020 and run for eight successive weeks, with the last class of the Term held on Tuesday 31 March 2020. Subsequent classes (Urdu 102, 103, and 104) will be held in the same time slot for the rest of the year.
All classes are held at Artmakers, 2 Seddon Rd, Hamilton.
Cost per person per Term (8 classes):
- Waged: $104 (includes $4 online registration fee)
- Unwaged (unemployed, students, seniors): $84 (includes $4 online registration fee)
The course fee includes all teaching materials. Individual notebooks for note taking are not provided. Students must bring their own notebooks and pens/pencils.
Our Urdu classes are generally for adults and teens. Adults and older teens who already understand and speak Urdu, but who do not know how to read and write in Nastaʿlīq, may also chose to enroll in the Term 1 course only. If you are interested in a separate class for younger children that does not focus on literacy, please contact us at email@example.com as there may be other parents who are interested as well, in which case it may be possible to add a short spoken language class for young children.
