About the Authors

Nigora Azimova is a native of Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and is a language specialist at the Center for Languages of the Central Asian Region at Indiana University.


"This long-awaited textbook is quite special. It is one of the first published books on a Turkic language that uses the communicative approach. It teaches the culture as well as the language. It is user friendly with lots of colorful pictures. It familiarizes students to the spoken language by presenting real-life dialogues and video clips. It has clear and precise grammar explanations and provides the student with exercises and situations for using the language in context. Overall, it is fun to use. I would recommend it to all teachers of Uzbek. Not only will they have an interesting time and experience, their students will as well." — Güliz Kuruoğlu, University of California, Los Angeles
