According to the constitution of Kazakhstan, the official state language of the Republic of Kazakhstan is Kazakh. Russian is officially used on equal grounds along with the Kazakh language. Russian is used routinely in government, business, and everyday communication, although Kazakh is becoming more widely used.
Other languages spoken in Kazakhstan include Uzbek, Tatar, Kyrgyz, Ukrainian, Azerbaijani, Uygur, Korean etc. Although education is conducted in either Kazakh, Russian, or both, representatives of ethnic minorities usually have an opportunity to study their native language at school.
Day of Languages of the Peoples of Kazakhstan is celebrated with special lessons at schools, concerts, language contests, discussions, conferences, and other appropriate events and activities. These events are designed to celebrate linguistic diversity and promote mutual understanding between the peoples of Kazakhstan.Remind me with Google Calendar
