Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Course Description:
This course introduces students to basic conversation in Hausa. Based on the texts covered in the lectures (143295 Hausa Texts 2), the course will draw on the idea of conversation gambits, drills, dialogues, classroom oral interactions.
It is intended that by this practical- student-centered approach, students may be able to grasp Hausa language elements and useful phrases that eventually make them functionally proficient enough to appreciate the rich culture and social composition of the Hausa people.
Interested students may also be able to tie this course in with their courses of study in other departments such as Linguistics (for Linguistic comparisons and analysis), Comparative Literature, English etc.
Students who may just want to learn Hausa for interest or who intend to go on fieldwork/visits to Hausa speaking parts of Africa such as Nigeria, Niger, Mali and Ghana may also find this course extremely useful.

Learning Objectives:
To be able to use texts covered in lectures as prompts to talk about one-self, formulate questions, engage in dialogues, learn useful phrases, do picture descriptions, skits, and role-plays.
To become functionally proficient by the end of the course.

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. Chit-chat-time with native-speakers in the classroom or in Vienna could also be arranged.

Assessment and permitted materials

Active participation during all class sessions will be the key.
