COURSE OUTLINE

NOTE: This course outline is tentative. Time will be devoted to the topics as needed to facilitate understanding. If at any time you feel the class is moving too slow or too fast, please make your concerns known.

There is no realistic way to communicate all there is to know about the Kanza language in as short a course as this. If you would like more language material or more information in general, please contact us.

"Traditional Classrom Meetings with Electronic Classroom Participation" students are responsible for BOTH parts of the weekly schedule, the Traditional Classroom and the Electronic Classroom components. The other two groups use only one or the other, and follow a ten-week schedule.
