GEOR 20003 - 20006
Intensive Introductory Georgian

Course level: 
Language course

This six-week course provides a comprehensive introduction to modern Georgian. Class time will emphasize basic communicative skills (reading, writing, listening comprehension, and speaking). Students will also become familiar with Georgian history and culture by working with authentic texts, audio and video, multimedia activities, and film screenings. After completing the course sequence, students will straddle the novice and intermediate proficiency levels in speaking, reading, writing, and listening. The University of Chicago is the only university in the U.S. to offer Georgian regularly. The course provides 140 contact hours over a 6-week period, divided into two segments of three weeks each. The GEOR 10003-10006 sequence is the equivalent of the 10100-10200-10300 sequence offered during the regular academic year at the University of Chicago. Intensive Introductory Georgian is FLAS eligible.
