Marathi, the language of the Maharashtra state, and Mumbai, the

summer of 2001. This (intensive) course will cover first year (two
semesters) of language instruction in eight weeks (June,11 -August 1,
2001) beginning at the introductory level. The course will be taught at
the UIUC campus in Champaign-Urbana. It is designed to teach basic
skills in reading, writing, and speaking Marathi. Additionally, the
course will familiarize students with the cultural context of India and
Maharashtra through audio-visual material. Students will be encouraged
to participate in group discussion to enhance their skills in spoken
Marathi. The language will be taught and supervised by native speakers
of Marathi. 

The course will provide one year (two semesters) of language credit (10

I've been working on an introductory linguistics course for nonlinguists,
written in cooperation with the Linguistics & Science Fiction Network
members (who have been telling me when the material is inadequate, unclear,
boring, overly difficult, pompous, or in any other way unsatisfactory).
_Very_ short lessons, posted roughly once a month, at . Lesson One has been revised to a
faretheewell and is now posted in final form; Lesson Two has just been
posted in its trial version. Comments from Linguist List members would be
very welcome.
