Amharic is the official language of Ethiopia used in government, business, government schools, most newspapers, and by educated people. The Amharic Basic Course presents lessons in dialogues, drills, exercises, and narratives. It includes samples of speech, explanations of basic language structures, and a variety of practical exercises.

Amharic is not currently taught on the IU campus, but we do have access to archived materials. Additional resources can be found from the Foreign Service Institute.
