Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

According to the latest statistics, isiZulu is spoken at home by more than a quarter of the South African population. Another 18% speak very closely related languages and many L1 speakers of other South African languages understand or speak isiZulu. Today, IsiZulu is a language with a growing prestige, an increasing presence in South Africa's public life, is increasingly taught at universities, has a wealth of literature and is one of the few African languages with a significant Internet presence.

The course aims at a basic understanding of grammatical structures and the ability to put them into practice. At the end of the course, students should be able to independently analyse texts written in isiZulu, master standard communicative situations and thus have at their disposal a toolkit that facilitates their access to large parts of the South African society and gives them a deeper understanding of diverse social contexts.

After a general introduction, which provides basic information on the language in the context of the southern Niger-Congo languages and its position in South Africa, the students will gradually be familiarised with the grammar and basic vocabulary of modern urban isiZulu. The focus will be on language-relevant terminology and the specific structures that are intended to facilitate a closer understanding of the context. Other focal points of the presentation include the phenomena of language change and multilingualism in a multi-ethnic society increasingly influenced by globalisation.

The students activate the information conveyed in the lectures through exercises, which have to be completed both in the course and outside the course hours. The course is based on the textbook 'Complete Zulu. Beginner to Intermediate Course' by Wilkes/Nkosi which will be supplemented by materials in digital form, allowing students to work as actively as possible on their knowledge and language skills outside class hours. In addition to digital grammar drills, digitally prepared dialogues and texts will also be used to deepen what has already been learned and to develop new knowledge. The course is an integrated activity in which teachers and students work interactively and jointly on new content.

Assessment and permitted materials

Regular attendance (3 times absence is tolerated) and participation are prerequisites for the successful completion of the course. At the end of the semester there is a final test (written + oral).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Students are expected to have a sufficient knowledge of German and English as well as a basic interest in linguistic questions.

Examination topics

The examination material includes all practical and theoretical contents of the course.
