This course constitutes a continuation of the introductory course in Swahili. The course trains reading skills through the study of adapted and commented texts as well as sound recordings. Students practice simple conversations by studying and actively using common constructions and everyday phrases. Students practice more translation, mainly from Swahili into a Scandinavian language or English, but also from one of the latter languages into Swahili. The necessary linguistic terminology is introduced to deepen students' knowledge of phonetics, grammar and semantics in Swahili.
