This course number is intended for students who wish to develop their ability to speak, read and write and understand a sub-Saharan African language. Instruction is offered through a distance-learning, course share program at Indiana University. At the Elementary level, instruction is currently offered in Bamana and Zulu, with the possibility of instruction in Wolof in the near future. At the Elementary level, the goal is to provide students with a basic but solid knowledge of morphology and syntax, functional vocabulary, and practice in speaking and writing. It is designed to introduce students not only to the language, but also to the many facets of the relevant African cultures. Students will develop their ability to communicate satisfactorily in everyday practical situations while acquiring some of the skills necessary for effective reading and writing. Using a variety of written and oral materials, the course focuses on the development of the four language skills necessary for interpersonal communication in listening, writing, reading, and speaking.

Crs Requirements: Regular written and oral exercises, occasional quizzes, and midterm/final exams with written and oral component.

Intended Audience: Undergraduates who want to study an African language. It will be offered as a meet-together with a 500-level for graduate students preparing for fieldwork in African countries.

Class Format: Class will meet four days a week for one hour.
