    Arkansas State offering Mandarin, Swahili classes

    Associated Press - June 16, 2008 10:24 AM ET

    JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Students at Arkansas State University will be able to enroll in accelerated classes this fall in Mandarin Chinese and Swahili.

    There is increasing demand among U.S. businesses for speakers of the two languages. About 1 billion people speak Mandarin and about a quarter-billion people speak Swahili, which is prominent on the east African coast.

    The classes will be taught as intensive courses for six hours of semester credit. The instructors are both students in ASU’s Heritage Studies Ph.D. program. Xiaoyun Winnie Wu will teach Chinese and Isaac Ong’oa will teach Swahili. Accelerated courses in Arabic are also to be taught.

    The introductory classes will be available only in the fall. In the spring, intermediate classes in Arabic, Mandarin and Swahili are planned.

    Kuna waKenya wengi ambao wanafundisha Kiswahili USA .... hasa waKikuyu ambao wakiwa Kenya kuongea Kiswahili ni sawa na kujishusha hadhi. Kwangu mimi kufundisha Kiswahili siyo fani yangu lakini nilikwenda kujiandikisha kama mkalimani kwenye hospitali moja hapa massachusetts.
    Pia nilikutana na mKenya anayefundisha Kiswahili "Guaranteed Swahili" na nikamuuliza kuhusu kujiandikisha kama mwalimu......akaniambia......"Ngocha nikuerese kierereso yake"....hapo aliniacha hoi sana.
