This intermediate level course sequence is designed for students who have successfully completed the Elementary sequence, or with the permission of the instructor. Instruction is offered through a distance-learning, course share program at Indiana University. It broadens speaking, reading and writing skills as students engage in discussions and writing on more complex topics. Videos, audio tapes, newspapers, magazines and the Internet provide resources for the content of materials of the students’ interests as well as exposure to more advanced language. They are encouraged to discuss culture as well as news from Africa. Students begin to read short novels, plays, poetry, and essays. Using a variety of materials, students acquire a solid knowledge of morphology and syntax, vocabulary, and more complex practice in speaking and writing. Swahili is currently the only language available at the Intermediate level, but additional languages may be added in the future.

Course Requirements:

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

Intended Audience:

Undergraduates who want to use an African language to complete their LSA language requirement and students in other colleges who wish to engage in such language study. It will meet-together with a 500-level course for graduate students preparing for fieldwork in an African country.

Class Format:

Class will meet four days a week for one hour.
