011 & 012 Elementary I & II
These two courses constitute the first year of language study.
011 is an introductory level course for students with no previous or minimal
experience in the language.
012, the sequel to 011, is for students with one semester of college
language or one year of high school language.
Emphasis is on the oral aspects of the language with substantial work on
reading and writing skills and on introduction to the culture.
III & IV
Students who have satisfactorily completed six hours of
elementary language, or who have had at least two years of language in high
school, continue the development of the basic skills in aural comprehension,
speaking, and writing. In addition,
emphasis is placed on independent readings.
For a more complete description of these courses, please refer
to the KU Undergraduate Handbook.
The placement exam is
designed for students with previous language experience who want to continue
studying that same language.
