Cornell University:Intensive Summer Nepali Program 2004

Cornell University

Nepali, the official language of Nepal, will be offered in the Cornell University Summer Session at both beginning and continuing levels. Taught by faculty from Cornell University and the Cornell-Nepal Study Program at Tribhuvan University, this summer program provides an unusual opportunity to develop competence in Nepali.

Emphasis will be on the spoken colloquial language, in dialogues, exercises and conversational practice. In addition, special attention is given to assisting students in developing vocabularies and skills appropriate to their unique professional needs. Reading and writing practice use both popular and scholarly materials in the Nepali (Devanagari) script.

Students will spend five hours per day in class and two further hours working with recorded materials in addition to the time required for daily preparation. Films and guest lecturers complement the summer program.
