Description

This course concentrates on developing communicative skills to enable the learners engage in meaningful verbal interactions with other Swahili speakers. In order to achieve this goal, most lessons are task-based, both pedagogic and real-life tasks. Activities such as role-play, creating sample materials, discussion, storytelling, describing scenes, and studying authentic cultural objects are used. Reading and writing passages are carried out as would be in a Swahili speaking community. Prerequisite: AAS 116 or permission from the instructor after testing.

Course Requirements:

Regular attendance is essential. Participation in class includes asking and answering questions in Swahili, initiating discussion, role playing, and other situational activities. The final grade is based on class participation, journal entries, homework assignments, unit exams, a mid-term written and oral test and a final written and oral examination.

Intended Audience:

Undergraduate concentrators and minors in CAAS, especially those engaged in the academic study of African/East African cultures as well as students engaged in similar study in a variety of other programs and departments such as Anthropology, History, Sociology, Political Science, and the RC.
