Course Description

Intermediate Amharic, AFRICAM 21A

This course continues to build on what students learned in its prerequisite course, AFRICAM 18A. A student is required to have successfully completed AFRICAM 18B at UC Berkeley. Students who took Amharic elsewhere may have to take a PLACEMENT test before enrolling in this course. The design of this syllabus is based on global standards for teaching Amharic as a foreign language, and ACTFL proficiency guidelines. Using the skills acquired in the first year of Amharic, this course is meant to help students improve their speaking, writing, reading, listening and cultural proficiencies. In this course, students are advised to minimize the use of English to 50% and below and plan on using Amharic more in and out of class.
