HALQ-211 - Intensive Halq'emeylem II - 9.00 Credits

Course Details
Intensive Halq'eméylem Level II is the second of four intensive courses in the Halq'emeylem language. Students will master their second set of 500 vocabulary items, while learning to use a number of other core grammatical patterns in the language. Methodologies are similar to Intensive Level 1: heavy focus on vocabulary learning, communicative-functional approaches (e.g. dialogues, play-acting), mixed with practice with the grammatical exercises and more advanced focus on the details of pronunciation. Students will also focus on studying a traditional oral text.
