Course Descriptions

01822/Critical Languages

Languages course work (except Chinese and Japanese) is offered in a modified self-instructional format. Instruction is oriented principally toward the acquisition of oral comprehension and speaking skills (proceeding into the written form of the language during the first semester). Course grades may be based on a single end-of-term examination administered in an oral-interview format by a specialist in language skills evaluation, but with some variation in procedures among the several language sequences. The grade of "Incomplete" is not normally an option, given the special nature of self-managed language skills acquisition in Critical Language courses. Students in Critical Languages courses are responsible for their own advancement, utilizing the text and accompanying audio and video tapes (available through the Media Learning Center). In addition, small group class sessions are regularly scheduled two to three hours a week (four meetings per week in Chinese and Japanese). Students must expect to spend at least 10-12 hours per week throughout the semester in language study at home (working with texts and cassette tapes), in addition to the hours each week devoted to the class sessions. Accordingly, students unwilling or unable to make a long-term commitment to rigorous and disciplined daily language study are not encouraged to register for Critical Language courses. For additional information on courses in Chinese, contact the Director of Chinese Language, 347 Anderson Hall (215-204-8247). For additional information on courses in Japanese, contact the Director of Japanese Language, 332 Anderson Hall (215-204-4492). For additional information on all other languages, contact the Center's office, 332 Anderson Hall (215-204-8268).
