The creation of interactive, multimedia lessons in Swahili for intermediate language learners to acquire advanced skills in the target language.

We propose to develop an innovative series of interactive, multimedia lessons targeting imporvement in advanced level listening skills and cultural competency for students of Swahili. Studetns will be introduced to authentic Swahili media materials through the Tanzanian-US co-produced, award-winning, feature film MAANGAMIZI - The Ancient One by Martin Mhando and Ron Mulvihil, produced by Gris Gris Films (2000). Experienced teachers of Swahili will collaborate with specialists knowledgeable in African history, society, and politics. This project also draws upon an exceelent group of technology professionals experienced in the development and implementation of web-based instructional materials. We will implement a robust evaluation program and dissemination of these instructional materials will be achieved through presentations at key national and international conferences related to Africa.
