INAF 105- Beginners Swahili II

This course will be built on the foundation of “Introduction to Beginners Swahili I.” It will address more advanced grammar, vocabulary expansion and overall language proficiency. It will be highly interactive, conversational, and multifaceted in nature. The sociocultural underpinnings of Swahili will be explored through selected readings on storytelling, education, family life, travel, and other topics. Different genres of Swahili, for example, poems, riddles, and proverbs will be covered.
