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!
