This course is a continuation of first-year Beginning Urdu. Those who have not taken the sequence of Urdu courses offered by this department may be able to join this course if they have obtained prior knowledge of the language by some other means (see the instructor for placement). This course is designed to further develop skills in speaking and reading comprehension. Emphasis is given especially to communicative skill development (i.e., the use of language in various sociocultural contexts). In general, one fourth of the time will be devoted to reading, one fourth to conversation, one fourth to grammar, and one fourth to drills of various kinds. Standard text, web-based materials, language lab, audio-video materials, and a course reader prepared by the instructor are used. Students may not take this course pass/fail or audit.
