Urdu teaching aids.

CITY youngsters eager to learn Urdu are being offered a helping hand with the launch of a new resource pack for schools. The pack, entitled Spoken Urdu for GCSE Students, features an Urdu textbook with English translation and a double audio CD containing narrative by four Urdu speakers.

It has been created to help teach spoken Urdu at Key Stage 3, and Key Stage 4 for GCSE students of the language.

The text for the pack was written by Prof Saeed Durrani, chairman of the Iqbal Academy (UK) and patron for the Society for the Advancement of Urdu, Birmingham.

He said: "Teaching Urdu in secondary schools is increasing in popularity so this is a practical resource that can be used to help teachers to further understand the language and be able to improve their skills."

Coun Les Lawrence, cabinet member for education, said: "This is an excellent resource that should be used by schools who offer Urdu as a subject in their curriculum.
