The student is expected to read some literary works and/or the history of target cultures and countries and be cognizant of them in both written and spoken form. Students will participate in various activities, such as skits, news broadcasts, improvised dialogues, and situational dialogues.  A student can expect to prepare individual projects or papers in this course.
