While Intermediate Swahili focuses on daily life through an emphasis on conversational and communicative approaches, this course addresses advanced issues related to culture, literature, politics, society, sociological studies, and gender. Samplings of East African films are viewed occasionally to help students improve comprehension and analytical skills. The overall intended learning objective is to enable students to critically analyze Swahili texts and discourse, and express ideas in Swahili at this level. The instructor uses situational dialogues, folk tales, songs and written literature to teach the students about societal issues and values. To reinforce the language learning and its daily uses, students undertake an independent study.

This course enables students to gain a deeper understanding of the Swahili language through reading, analyzing and interpreting complex thoughts, issues and ideas in literature written in Swahili by African writers. In addition, students perform other linguistically advanced tasks, such as: expressing their feelings, seeking the opinion of others, giving advice and describing their health condition. As with the earlier courses, culture is built into the course and is introduced through lectures, field exercises and interactions. Prerequisite: Intermediate Swahili AAS 216
