ASIANLAN 186 is a continuation of ASIANLAN 185. This continuing proficiency-based course aims to refine and build upon previously acquired language skills in culturally authentic contexts. The classes will focus on expanding vocabulary and learning new phrases, grammar, and structures to facilitate communication around a set of themes. The students will get opportunities to advance their language skills — listening, speaking, reading, and writing — in order to broaden their ability to communicate at a mid/high novice level by exchanging, interpreting, and presenting information in Bengali. They will learn and work on expanding their range of topics to be able to perform more complex tasks using new vocabulary and structures within major time frames.

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
  • Carry out all communicative tasks mastered in the previous semester with more complexity and ease
  • Exchange information about familiar topics (themselves, family, weather, sports, school, likes/dislikes and travel experiences)
  • Buy groceries, clothes, and necessities and negotiate their prices
  • Participate in simulated tasks in which they: ask for and give directions, order food at a restaurant, accept and politely decline invitations or requests, make apologies and give reasons, tell past experiences and future plans
  • Express possession and make simple comparisons

Course Requirements:

Homework assignments, attendance and class participation, quizzes, project, midterm and final exam
