“I love teaching and I’m excited to engage with young energetic students.”
– Dr. Rahim Qader Surkhi

This winter, we are excited to welcome Dr. Surkhi to our School as part of the Scholars at Risk Network. He will be teaching our credit course in Sorani Kurdish.

Sorani Kurdish is a member of the Indo-Iranian language family and is spoken by about 7 million people living predominantly in Iran and Iraq.   It is also the primary language of media, public education, and public institutions in the Kurdistan Regional Government-Iraq. There are about 12,000 Kurds living in Canada, the majority of whom are speakers of Sorani Kurdish.

The course meets weekly on Mondays & Wednesdays (6:00-8:00 p.m.). If you are planning to register, you can find the course LANG 1010 C by searching under the heading “Language Studies” on Carleton Central.
