Category: Languages
Course #: 21707
Units: 5
Times and Locations:
MTuWThF 2-3 pm
This class is for students with no previous speaking ability in Khmer, and is the first part of a two-semester sequence, along with Khmer 1B. Students will learn "survival" speaking, reading, and writing skills in Khmer, and also become familiar with and learn how to act within Khmer culture. We'll spend roughly 60% of our time on speaking and listening, and 40% on reading and writing. Topics covered include greetings, pleasantries, friends and family, and the home. Class participation makes up the majority of the grade for this class. Students are expected to attend all classes (5 days per week) and come prepared to participate in each class.
