This course will deal with the extension of grammatical concepts and structures and vocabulary expansion. In order to cover the language competency areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing, students will learn to initiate and sustain conversations, transcribe, translate and summarize news broadcasts, read excerpts from the book and newspaper articles, and give summaries, and write 3-4 page essays. This multifaceted approach will enable students to enhance their communication skills in Swahili, and handle a variety of topics that tremendously reflect the sociocultural environment and current events in East Africa.
