Learn more about Urdu for K-12
Urdu is the official language of Pakistan and is spoken by 90.8 million people worldwide as their mother tongue. It is spoken predominantly in Pakistan and India but significant Urdu communities exist in the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Just like other East Asian languages, Urdu uses honorifics that are linguistic conventions used to show respect, politeness, and social hierarchy. Honorifics play a central role in facilitating respectful and harmonious interactions in East and South Asian societies.
The fee for enrolling in Urdu classes will depend on the type of class you choose. We offer hourly fee per student or a semester fee per student for group, private, in-person, and online classes. Sibling discount is available. You must register to see the actual amount due. See our prices.
We perform formative assessments throughout the learning episodes and a summative assessment at the end of each session. We recommend signing up for at least 4 months of classes to see a full proficiency level change—from novice to novice mid.
Our teachers are native Urdu speakers and possess a high level of proficiency in Urdu language, including a strong command of grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and cultural nuances. They understand teaching methodologies based on ACTFL standards of teaching foreign languages such as immersive, task-based learning, and scaffolding.
Language teaching is not just about vocabulary and grammar; it’s also about imparting cultural insights and fostering cross-cultural understanding. Our teachers are well versed in the Pakistani heritage and culture and the diaspora communities in the U.S.
Pervaaz means “to fly” or “flight”. Our approach involves taking a virtual flight and journey into Pakistan’s arts, history, heritage, and culture to learn the Urdu language in context. The term “flight” also represents the remarkable progress in learning achieved in just four weeks of our immersive curriculum.
We teach Urdu through the five senses where students watch videos around the topic, listen to regional and contmeporary music, speak Urdu with friends and taste aromatic ethnic foods as part of their learning experience. Sign up for an Urdu class >>
