      A Summer Course in Beginning Sanskrit

      Introductory Sanskrit (SANS 102) will be taught by Professor Ashok Aklujkar
      in the second term of the 2006 summer session at the University of British
      Columbia. This will be the last time Professor Aklujkar will teach this
      course at UBC, because he will retire from the Department of Asian Studies,
      (Vancouver, B.C., Canada V6T 1Z2) at the end of 2006 in keeping with the
      mandatory retirement policy currently in force at UBC.

      The dates set for the course are Monday 17 July - Saturday 26 August 2006,
      with a two-hour final examination taking place on the last day. During the
      specified six weeks, the class will meet, in Buchanan B224, for 3-3.5 hours
      each on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings (9-12 a.m, with
      possible extension toward 8:00 a.m. or 01:00 p.m. on some days), making a
      total of 78 hours of instruction and testing. Students will have Wednesdays
      and weekends free for consolidation of what they learn on the other days.

      The current UBC fees for such a 6-credit course are C$802.20 for Canadian
      students and C$3,324.00 (approximately equal to US$ 2,825.40) for
      international students.

      The course credits presuppose a term or semester system. They may correspond
      to a higher number at universities following the quarter system.

      There are no prerequisites for the course other than suitability for
      admission at the University of British Columbia. Inquiries regarding this
      suitability should be directed to Enrolment Services at UBC: Web:
      http://students.ubc.ca/welcome/admission.cfm, tel: 604-822-3414,

      Other inquiries of a practical nature should be made at the Department of
      Asian Studies: <astudies [at interchange dot ubc dot ca]>, tel: 604-822-0019.

      Information about the Department can be had at http://www.asia.ubc.ca/index.php?

      For inquiries regarding course content and the textbook _Sanskrit: an Easy
      Introduction to an Enchanting Language_., Prof. Aklujkar can be contacted at
      <aklujkar [at interchange dot ubc dot ca]>, tel. 1-604-822-5185, 1-604-274-5353.

      Interested students coming from distant places should inquire at their
      universities or with the local India specialists if any financial assistance
      is available. For non-Canadian students, exchange agreements between Canada
      and their country of residence may prove to be useful.

      Vancouver, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, is well-known for
      its pleasant summers.
