We are proud to offer Urdu in conjunction with the Wisconsin Intensive Summer Language Institutes. Please note that the format will differ from other language courses offered by Continuing Studies.

In this introductory-level Urdu language and culture class, participants will have the opportunity to gain a solid foundation in Urdu and learn about the rich cultural traditions of Pakistan and other Urdu-speaking regions. The 10-week online course is ideal for those who want to get an overview of the basics of the Urdu writing system, learn conversational Urdu useful for daily activities (e.g. shopping, ordering in restaurants), and explore cultural themes via dramas, movies, songs and poetry. No previous knowledge is required.
