Learn Punjabi

Join the 130 million people around the world who speak Punjabi. The ninth most-spoken language in the world, Punjabi is a fascinating and vibrant language.

Which Punjabi language course should I take?

Students with no background in the language may enroll themselves into the relevant introductory course.

Students who have some background in Punjabi should contact the course instructor for a placement interview if they are enrolling in an Punjabi course for the first time.

Students who have transferred from a college or a university and took Punjabi in their prior institution should take the next level course.

* We reserve the right to move students to more proficiency-appropriate courses or to unenroll students when there is no appropriate course for them.

Placement interviews

Students who are unsure about their level or background in Punjabi should attend a placement interview before they register for courses. Contact the undergraduate advisor (wlladv@sfu.ca) to arrange.

Students are expected to provide true information about their language background and language learning experiences to the best of their knowledge. Concealing your knowledge of the language and/or providing false information are considered academic dishonesty and can be recorded on the your academic record.
