The SOAS Newar Language Society aims at promoting the endangered language spoken by the Newars/Newahs of Nepal. It organises language classes in collaboration with native speakers of the local Newar community in London. Given the large number of varieties of Newar language (Nepal Bhasa) spoken in Nepal, and given the fact that existing grammars often do not take a communicative approach, one of the main purposes of the society has been that of making this language more accessible to learners, also providing new interactive teaching material. Furthermore, the society organises workshops and events on Newar culture including Newar food, dance, rituals, movies, art, etc.
