Intensive Nepali:


Nepali, the official language of Nepal, will be offered in the Summer Session at both beginning and continuing levels. 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. The program lasts six weeks and meets five days a week. Students must formally apply to the program. Applications are available at lrc.cornell.edu/asian/programs/summer/nepali during the spring semester. For more information, please see Kim Scott in 350 Rockefeller Hall or e-mail: kp16@cornell.edu.

Courses in other colleges will count as College of Arts and Sciences credit only for Asian Studies majors. Courses from other departments and/or colleges generally count toward the Asian Studies major (even though not cross-listed), as long as the course content is 50 percent or more focused on Asia. Such courses typically fall under the heading of Society and Culture (SC) and must be approved by the major advisor and director of undergraduate studies.
