About the Subject

Albanian is an Indo-European language spoken in the Balkan Peninsula, mainly in Albania and Kosova. The Albanian language has no close sister languages, but forms its own branch within the Indo-European language family. Albanian is spoken by over 6,000,000 people.

Significant Albanian minorities exist in the countries of the southern Balkans and southern Italy. In recent decades, Albanian minorities have also emerged in North America, Western and Southern Europe. In Sweden there are about 40,000 Albanians.

Albanian's oldest history is still insufficiently explored, but most specialists agree that the modern Albanian originates from the Indo-European languages ​​spoken in the southern Balkans during antiquity. Written Albanian is documented since the 15th century. During its development, the Albanian has borrowed many words from the languages ​​in the immediate area: Greek, Latin, Italian, South Slavic and Turkish.

Geg and Tosk are Albanian's two main dialects. Geg is spoken in northern Albania and Kosova, while Tosk is spoken in southern Albania. The literary language in the Republic of Albania is based on tosk.

Together, the courses Albanian A1 and Albanian A2 provide the basics with both practical and theoretical orientation in the Albanian language. The courses Albanian A1 and A2 do not constitute neither main nor minor field of study for a degree, but they can be included in the degree if the main and the minor field of study are already completed.
