The course is designed for students who wish to improve their knowledge of the subject both in its literary and colloquial form. The course will include use of non-literary texts and exercises to develop grammatical, syntactic and idiomatic mastery of the language.

Completion of parts A and B will prepare students to continue to an eventual major in the discipline.
