Asian Language Taster Classes


CAP language academics




Monday, 26 March, 2018 - 17:00 to Monday, 21 May, 2018 - 18:00

Are you interested in learning another language? Seeking an edge in the “Asian Century”? ANU College of Asia & the Pacific will host a series of Asian Language Taster Classes at the Baldessin Precinct Building from 26 March through to 21 May, 2018.

Classes will be held each Monday from 5-6pm. Taught by our academics, eight languages will be covered in the series: Indonesian, Vietnamese, Sanskrit, Korean, Burmese, Hindi, Thai and Mandarin. Our aim is to give students a “taste” of different languages in a fun, collaborative environment.

Each lesson will cover basics of the language including greetings, introductions, pronunciation (and, for the adventurous, maybe a tongue-twister or two). Advice and information will also be available for students interested in adding a language to their current degree. 

Whether you’re eager to refresh your existing knowledge or starting from scratch, learners of all levels are warmly invited to attend. Bookings are not required – just bring your brain and enthusiasm!
