Tatar is the official language of the Republic of Tatarstan (Russian Federation). The post-Soviet Tatarstan is a dynamically developing republic with extensive international relations. It is rich in oil and natural gas and is struggling to achieve vigorous economic growth and a stable business climate.

Tatar is spoken by approximately 7 million people throughout the world. Outside of Tatarstan, there are large populations of Tatars in the Volga region, Siberia, Moscow, St. Petersburg and other regions of Russia, as well as in newly independent states, such as Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan. The Tatar diasporas live in Finland, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Sweden, Norway, the United States, Australia, China, Japan, and other countries.

Tatar belongs to the Turkic branch of the Altaic language family. Originally written in the Arabic script, Tatar now uses the Cyrillic alphabet. Modern literary Tatar language preserves the traditions of a language that was a universal means of communication for Tatars, Bashkirs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyzes and many other Turkic people.

Knowledge of Tatar can be both your bridge to the world of Turkic languages and cultures and an asset for your professional career.
