We organize small groups or one on one Mongolian language classes at our school facilities in Ulaanbaatar. Our one on one classes offer the chance to have high quality, authentic interactions with native speakers and a unique level of focus perfect for those who want to quickly improve their language skills.
If you are busy at the office and don’t have time to travel to a school facility, or simply prefer to learn off-site, our teachers will come to you and provide the same level of service as if you were present in our school room.
Remote lessons offer the opportunity for students to learn without leaving home. It is a highly convenient option for those unable to make it in to the school, and the instruction is just as comprehensive. Teachers are assigned to students based on their specific needs and interests. Course offerings are the same as in-person.
Fist of all, sometimes people ask, “Is Mongolian an individual language?” We say, yes. Mongolian is one of the most unique languages spoken in the world and related to the Altaic language family. Some researchers say that around 10 million people speak Mongolian, including 3.3 million people in Mongolia and 5 million people in inner Mongolia, China, and in some parts of the Russian federation.
Mongolian is the official language of Mongolia and is generally divided into three groups (main dialects). So these are called Khalkh in majority parts of Mongolia (more than 90% of people in Mongolia are spoken). Dialect in the western part of Mongolia called Oirat, and this dialect is spoken now in Khovd, Uvs, and Bayan-Ulgii provinces, also in some regions of China and Kalmyks in Russia.
An eastern group is closely related to Buryat Mongols in Dornod, Khentii provinces, as well as in parts of Russia and China, bordered with east part of Mongolia.
Besides, other outlying languages are Moguls in Afghanistan, Dagur in Inner Mongolia, Uighur in Gansu province, China, and the related groups of Mogul, Dongxiang, and Bao’an which are spoken on the edge of the regions of Gansu province, China.
Moreover, It seems like the first period of spoken Mongolian language dated back to the 5th century. Mongolians created and used several language scripts in history. Scripts that used Mongolians are Old Mongolian script (vertical) since the 12th century, Durvuljin script, Tod script, Latin alphabet, and Cyrillic alphabet.
While Inner Mongolians are still using Old Mongolian script, in Republic Mongolia, people use the Mongolian Cyrillic alphabet in writing today. In 1941, Mongolian scientists identically created a writing system adopting from Russian Cyrillic Alphabet and added two letters (Ө, Ү) to the Russian Cyrillic.
Lastly, In Mongolia today, people speak Mongolian, Kazakh (there are Kazakh Mongolian citizens mostly in Bayan-Ulgii province). Some people know Russian because of the old generation who studied and educated in CCCR and nowadays the number of people is interested in learning English is increasing.
