This 10-week Beginners course for students with no prior knowledge of Mongolian provides an introduction to the Mongolian Cyrillic script, everyday vocabulary, the basic grammar structures of the language and Mongolian culture.
During the first few weeks of the course the Mongolian Cyrillic script is introduced. However, the emphasis of the course is on developing the students’ communicative ability in a range of situations. Some reading and writing skills are then practised and extended throughout the course. The basic elements of Mongolian grammar are introduced to enable you to understand the structure of the language.
By the end of this students will be able to communicate in Mongolian on simple everyday topics such as:
- greeting other people; introducing yourself and other people, providing some basic information about yourself and the members of your family;
- reading numbers and being able to count in Mongolian, knowing the days of the week and the months of the year;
- asking and giving directions;
- ordering a meal in a restaurant and reading a basic menu;
- describing things and people
