SWAH 2110 - Intermediate Swahili

First course of two-semester intermediate-level sequence. Although this course will rely on the basic knowledge learned in the previous year, it is designed to take the learner deeper into Swahili structure and grammar as well as deepen their understanding and appreciation of Swahili culture. The reading passages will be longer, the written compositions longer, and the concepts more abstract. Promoting communicative competence is the main goal of this course. Students will be expected to develop their abilities in debating and expressing abstract ideas and concepts. Students will also begin working on group or individual projects that demonstrate their understanding of East African cultural issues. Students will also be encouraged to make the connections or draw comparisons between East African and American culture. In addition, students will be expected to try to integrate their majors with what they are learning in class.
