HALQ-212 - Intensive Halq'emeylem III - 9.00 Credits

Course Details
Intensive Halq'eméylem III is the third of four intensive courses in the Halq'eméylem language. Students will master their third set of 500 vocabulary items, bringing their total vocabulary up to 1500 high-frequency words in the language, while learning some of the more advanced grammatical patterns in the language. Methodologies are similar to Intensive Level 1 and 2: 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, and study of a fairly extensive oral narrative.
