The ONGC is very excited to be developing an Azerbaijani language programme led and taught by Dr Emine Çakır and Dr Farniyaz Zaker. 

The pilot programme began in Michaelmas Term 2021 offering two distinct classes: 1) an introduction to Azeri grammar and 2) Turkish-Azeri comparative linguistics. The classes cover the four core skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening and focus on the development of pragmatic communicative competencies. The classes run weekly for two hours in weeks 2-8 of each term. 

The programme is open to all students of Oxford University. If you are interested in joining the classes, please email the ONGC Administrator for further details (
