Contest, Headline, Uyghur Language »
I’m dedicating this week on FarWestChina to providing tools for those interested in learning Uyghur. Whether you want to do language study in Xinjiang, outside Xinjiang, or even in the comfort of your own home…I want to get you started speaking Uyghur. Why read? You could win a free Uyghur learning textbook!
