The 2014-15 Berkeley-AIPS Urdu Language Program in Pakistan will begin in mid-August 2014. Jointly administered by the America Institute of Pakistan Studies (AIPS) and the Center for South Asia Studies (CSAS) at the University of California at Berkeley, the program will be based in Lahore with language instruction offered at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) campus. This will be an intensive language program that will provide daily classroom instruction, five days a week. Classes will be small and individual tutorials will be provided. There will be regular assignments outside of class and special emphasis will be placed on connecting with the local speech community as well as self-management of learning. Participants will need to take part in all program events, such as attending films, plays and other cultural activities and will be expected to devote all their energies to activities that will increase their competence in all areas of language skills, such as speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
The program will award annual fellowships to (a) ten US-based students to spend approximately fifteen-weeks to study Urdu through an intensive Urdu language immersion program based at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) in Pakistan and (b) two to three US-based internships, for Pakistan-based Urdu teachers, focused on teaching Urdu as a second language.
