This course is for students who can already converse about the educated topics described for Khmer 100A-B at a basic level, and who have already mastered the basics of the Khmer writing system and can write simple academic papers in Khmer and read moderately complex folk tales and articles on topics such as history and news articles. Students will learn to discuss, read and write about the same topics covered in Khmer 1A, but at a much deeper and more sophisticated level: religion, traditional culture, and the language of public information. Students will study several complex Khmer folk tales and legends in depth, and also study the language used in public service announcements dealing with important social issues. Classes will involve both discussions of readings and task-based group activities in which information from a variety of sources must be synthesized and critically analyzed.
