SOAS Burmese language modules online 2020-21
This year, the COVID-19 situation means that teaching at SOAS, University of London, will take place online for much of the academic year 2020-2021. We have the opportunity to make available SOAS's existing Burmese language modules to non-deɡree students online.

UPDATE 1st July 2020
Only Burmese Language 2 is confirmed as running.
Burmese Language 1A, 1B and Burmese Language and texts will not run 20-21. We will be in touch about further Burmese language learning opportunities.

These courses are fully credit-bearing modules of SOAS, University of London. As an Associate Student of the University, you can choose to complete the assessment or not.

The courses are taught by Prof. Justin Watkins and Sayama Thazin at SOAS.

Please indicate your interest using this form, while the details of formal registration are being worked out.
For further information, contact Justin Watkins <>.
