Tajiki, a variety of modern Persian spoken in Central Asia, is the official language of Tajikistan; most speakers of Tajiki live in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Volume 1 of Tajiki: An Elementary Textbook is designed to cover the first semester of beginning-level language instruction; together, Volumes 1 and 2 of Tajiki cover one year of instruction. Each volume of Tajiki: An Elementary Textbook uses the latest pedagogical thinking to teach basic communication skills and linguistic forms in their cultural context. Tested in the classroom, Tajiki enhances students’ exposure to the language by providing the only authentic video and audio available in Tajiki. Each volume contains a CD-ROM that includes authentic audio and video materials to accompany the text and extra exercises, all in Flash format and all of which are keyed to the textbook.
