Urdu Readings

The material for the reading passages is taken from Gopi Chand Narang's well-known reader Urdu: Readings in Literary Urdu Prose as well as Khushboo by Nastaran Ahsan Fatihi and Sir Syed aur Urdu Sahafat by Mohammad Jahangeer Warsi. In order to provide a seamless transition between reading and vocabulary building, difficult words in the passages have been encoded with their English equivalents. By placing the cursor over a word highlighted in red, the English equivalent is displayed on the screen.

The reading passages also are accompanied by English summaries that provide an introduction and added context for the student before reading the Urdu passage.
