Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course introduces students to basic conversation in Hausa. Based on the texts covered in the lectures (Hausa Texts 1), the course will draw on the idea of conversation gambits, drills, dialogues, live telephone conversations / classroom oral interactions (if possible) between the tutor and native-speakers would be arranged to enable students to test their own level of meaning and understanding of Hausa towards the end of each Semester.
It is intended that by this practical- student-centered approach, students may be able to grasp Hausa language elements that eventually make them functionally proficient enough to appreciate the rich culture and social composition of the Hausa people.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
°) To be able to use texts covered in lectures as prompts to talk about oneself, to engage in dialogues, discussions, debates, skits and role-plays
°) To provide students with the tools to critically and intelligibly talk about the Hausa people of Africa from a literary perspective.

Format of Class meetings
Class interaction will be largely based on, listening, speaking, dialogues, discussions and native - speaker interactions. There will also be photo descriptions, film viewing and analysis for a social-cultural perspective as well as a hint on the various dialects of Hausa.
