SWAH 1110 - Elementary Swahili I


Introduces learners to Swahili vocabulary and grammar. These are used as the foundation for promoting the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. Emphasis will be on promoting the learners’ ability to express themselves, describe their daily experiences and engage in basic conversations. Although East African texts (reading passages, music and poems) will be used to promote learners’ understanding and appreciation of Swahili language and culture, non East African texts in Swahili might be sparingly used to achieve certain objectives. While the main focus of the course will be on enriching the students understanding of African culture through the learning of Swahili, students are expected to relate the Swahili culture with their everyday experiences. Learners will be involved in a semester long portfolio project comprised of biographical information about their everyday activities, or activities of other people, whether actual or fictional with an intention of applying all aspects of the materials covered in class. Specific information on this will be provided in the syllabus.
