Please share with your students:

Elementary Georgian (GEOR 221/321) will be offered again this year. This is a three-quarter course that covers basic Georgian grammar and includes writing, reading, listening, and speaking. The University of Chicago is the only university in the U.S. to regularly offer Georgian! Take advantage of this rare opportunity to study a unique language!

Georgian is a super fun language to learn and tantalizing for linguists:
