Course Description: 

This elementary course is for beginners and it requires no prior knowledge of
 Zulu.  The course will expose students to the Zulu language and culture and
 will be based in the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning.
 Students will be engaged in communicative language learning through
 interpersonal, interpretive and presentational modes of language learning
 techniques.  They will gain knowledge and understanding of the Zulu culture.
 They will use their Zulu language and culture learning experience to connect
 with other disciplines and further their knowledge of these disciplines
 through perspectives acquired from their Zulu class.  They will also develop
 insight into the nature of language and culture through comparisons of the
 Zulu language and culture and their own.  Through movies, songs, and other
 cultural activities online students will acquire the natural use of the
 language which will enable them to acquire linguistic and cultural skill to
 become life-long learners who can participate in Zulu communities in the U.S.
 and overseas.
OBJECTIVE: Attainment of Level 1 (ceiling) in speaking, listening, reading,
 and writing skills on the Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) scale.
