Program/Fellowship - ACMS Intensive Mongolian Language Program

The American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS) invites applications
from students and scholars wishing to participate in an eight week
Intensive Mongolian Language Program from June 15 to August 14 2009 in
Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The ACMS Intensive Mongolian Language Program in
summer 2009 will provide the equivalent of nine semester credit hours of
language training (144 contact hours), and will be led by experienced
Mongolian language teachers. The program is designed to support the
development of intermediate to advanced language skills, and all
applicants must have the equivalent of at least one year of Mongolian
language study experience by the time the program begins.
The program is open to students from all countries.


The ACMS language program comprises 80 lessons. Students are introduced
to intermediate to advanced grammar, vocabulary, and conversational
usages during the lessons through use of topical categories such
greetings, sports, and history. The program emphasizes skills sets that
allow students to converse in Mongolian in a natural way, providing
students with both the written and spoken forms of Modern Mongolian. The
program draws upon materials developed from the knowledge of local
experts and the experiences of non-native speakers of Mongolian.

Tuition and fees: $2,000

The program costs cover the tuition and course materials, including the
course book. Students are responsible for their own living and travel
expenses, and should take these costs into account when estimating the
