In summer 2013, we will offer instruction in first- and second-year Kazakh, along with first-year Uyghur, and first-year Uzbek. Scheduling of classes is contingent upon sufficient enrollment. Please apply to CESSI as early as possible to help ensure that your class will be offered. Other Central Eurasian languages may be added to this list if there is enough interest. Please contact the CESSI program coordinator if you are interested in studying a language not listed above.
Students may only register for one language per summer. This 8-week program offers the equivalent of two full semesters of academic study.
Credits: Upon completion of the program, students will receive 8 credits and a letter grade (A-F). Upon request, the Registrar of the University of Wisconsin-Madison will issue a transcript for coursework at CESSI.
Classroom hours of instruction:
Monday through Friday:
4 hours each day 8:30 - 1:00 PM (with a break from 10:30-11:00 AM)
Note: CESSI participants MUST complete the two consecutive 4-week sessions for a total of 8 weeks.
The 2013 instructors are:
Saule Mussabekova (elementary Kazakh)
Meruert Ibrayeva (intermediate Kazakh)
Mahire Yakup (elementary Uyghur)
