Punjabi Face-to-Face and at a Distance
The Golden Temple, Amritsar, India
May your homes and fields flourish, your people thrive and prosper
Your places of worship--Hindu, Muslim, and Sikh-- multiply
The world is all beautiful but your charm is unmatched
A shelter made of your earth is more winning than royal structures
Dhani Ram Chatrik (1876-1954)



The UC Consortium for Language Learning & Teaching (UCCLLT) received a grant (USDE P017A050017-01) from the International Research and Studies program of the U.S. Department of Education to create a state-of-the-art year-long course that will serve the needs of existing traditional classroom courses in Punjabi. The project has completed a textbook (Mann, G.S. (2011). An Introduction to Punjabi: Grammar, Conversation and Literature. Patiala: Punjabi University Patiala Press). A web version of the course is under development. Professor Gurinder Singh Mann, UC Santa Barbara, is the course designer, and Professor Robert J. Blake, Director of the UCCLLT, is the principal investigator. For additional information about this project please contact the UCCLLT (uccllt@ucdavis.edu)
