The Azerbaijani Language

No Prior Language Study Required

A language with modern significance in both Eastern Europe and Western Asia, Azerbaijani offers a window into the rich history and culture of the Caucasus region. Closely related to Turkish and other Western (Oghuz) Turkic languages, the Azerbaijani language is spoken in many of the countries bordering the Caspian Sea, including millions of speakers in Iran.

Whether you've studied a Turkic language and are looking to branch out to another, you're a student of the Caucasus and the former Soviet Union, or you want work in a region of rapidly growing economic importance, studying Azerbaijani will open new doors for you!
