KHMER - Intermediate Khmer

MTWTh 4-5:29P
Smith, Frank

Students may not take language courses at a lower level than they have been assessed at, nor than the level of other courses in the same language that they have successfully completed previously.


This class is intended for students who have already attained a "survival level" of spoken competence in Khmer language.  No previous knowledge of the writing system is necessary.  Students will learn the basics of Khmer reading and writing, and how to express themselves more subtly, coherently, and formally in the spoken language.  Students will also be given a basic foundation in several areas of cultural and linguistic knowledge shared by all adults in Cambodia: proper classroom language, Therevada Buddhism, and public information (such as news and advertising media).
