In an effort to deliver our materials widely and effectively, CeLCAR created a collection of on-line Kazakh, Pashto, Tajik, Uzbek, and Uyghur language podcasts for mobile devices. Texts were made available in spoken and written formats along with basic vocabulary items glossed in English. Texts included weekly summaries of news articles from authentic news websites as well as various contemporary topics in Central Asian culture. All texts were composed in simplified standard language and read by a native speaker staff member.
The level of language of these texts varies and is appropriate for learners at all levels, including those currently enrolled in language courses and those seeking materials to maintain their previously-achieved competency.
