Expanded Course Description
Swahili 201, 202, and 203 will continue to focus on reading and writing skills, while further developing oral and listening skills. At this level, students will be able to write short essays, read short passages of authentic material, and participate in conversations on daily and academic topics. Further emphasis will be placed on learning fundamental syntactic and morphological structures and increasing vocabulary. Cultural materials will continue to be integrated into the curriculum. Grades for the courses will be determined on the basis of exams, homework, writing assignments, and course participation.

These courses will create meaningful opportunities for students to engage actively in cultural and textual analysis through the language and cultural material presented as part of the curriculum. The proposed courses are broad in scope and liberal in nature in that Swahili language and culture will be approached through a variety of methods and world outlooks. For example, linguistic, cultural, textual, historical, and geographical materials will be introduced, discussed, and analyzed. Students will be encouraged to view topics discussed through non-U.S. perspectives, such as those of the East African countries of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Eastern Zaire. The multiplicity of perspectives within these regions will also be highlighted.
