Students will also develop and practice basic reading and writing techniques. The stimulus material (oral, aural and written) will provide an introduction to Swahili grammar and syntax and will contribute to giving the students an insight into aspects of Swahili life and culture. This module will be delivered via small group teaching with classes having a maximum of 18 students.
