This course will introduce students to the Mongolian language. Students will start learning Modern Mongolian and use of the Cyrillic script, as well as basic Mongolian pronunciation and grammar. Through learning the language students will also be introduced to Mongolian cultures and traditions. By the end of the course students will be able to use main cases and verb tenses in conversation and writing.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Pronounce all Mongolian consonants, vowels, and the changes that occur when letters are stacked.
- Recognize the Mongolian Cyrillic script and reproduce its syllabary to write words with accuracy.
- Use correctly all 400 vocabulary items introduced in the course textbook.
- Identify and produce practised sentence structures in colloquial Mongolian, which will allow them to conduct basic conversations, write short notes, and read short texts on everyday concrete topics.
- Conduct a simple conversation based on models covered in the course textbook on such topics as: greetings; introducing personal details of themselves or family members; and talking about daily activities.
- Describe the national festivals, customs, costumes, and cultures of food and drink practised in Mongolia.

Students with native speaker proficiency (may include cognate languages and dialects) must review the placement test site and contact the CAP Student Centre for appropriate enrolment advice. Students with previous “language experience or exposure” are required to take a language placement test to ensure enrolment at the most appropriate level.
Relevant past experience includes:
- Previous study of the language (both formal and informal, for example but not limited to, at school, or, home, or through online activities, etc.)
- Being exposed to the language in childhood via a family member or friend
- Travel or living in a country where the language is spoken
- The language being spoken in your home (even if you do not speak it yourself)
Students who are not sure if they need to take a placement test should seek advice from the course or language convenor. Students who intentionally misrepresent their language proficiency level may be investigated under the Academic Misconduct Rule 2015 as having failed to comply with assessment directions and having sought unfair advantage. This may results in a penalty such as reduced grades or failure of the course.
Students are not permitted to enrol in a language course below one that they have already successfully completed, except with permission of the language and/or course convenor.
This is a co-taught course. Any cap on enrolments in one course applies to both courses combined.
