There are more than 100 million Punjabi speakers around the world today. Punjabi is a "new Indo-Aryan language," a status it shares with many other modern languages of the northern regions of South Asia. Punjabi is spoken in Punjab, a region between New Delhi and Peshawar, the region that separates Pakistan from Afghanistan. In Canada, Punjabi is an important language and is the third-most spoken language in B.C.

UCFV Punjabi courses are designed for students who already have some familiarity with spoken Punjabi, and who wish to familiarize themselves with Gurmukhi script. Beginner non-credit courses in Punjabi are also available through Continuing Studies (call Mandy Watts at 604-504-7441, local 4638, for more information on non-credit language courses).
