Course Description

Introductory Conversational Yorùbá is an eight-class course where you will learn the essentials to function in a Yorùbá-speaking environment within a Yorùbá cultural context. You will learn greetings, introductions and basic conversational skills. You will learn pronunciation, sentence structure, regular verb tenses and more. Cultural lessons are part of language learning and you will learn how to introduce yourself, how to find out information from others, how to address different people, proverbs, how to speak about your age, where you’re from, where you live and more. Learning activities are appropriate for all ages and will include listening, speaking, reading, role-playing, writing and more. You will be expected to reinforce learning between classes by completing homework assignments and by learning and using vocabulary words. A practical assessment of acquired skills concludes the course.
