What is Urdu?
Urdu is the national language of Pakistan, as well as being one of the official languages of India, and the language of a rich literary tradition. It is also a tremendously important language in South Asia.
It is an Indo-European language influenced by Arabic, Persian, Sanskrit, and Turkish. Urdu gives you an access to important languages like Arabic or Persian. It is mutually intelligible with critical languages like Hindi, or regional languages like Punjabi. Urdu-Hindi are considered as no less than the fourth most-spoken language on Earth.
… And considering the growing importance of South Asia in the world’s economy, speaking Urdu gives a privileged access to one of the fastest-growing market in our contemporary world.
