Course Description
 This course develops the skills obtained either from the Beginning Tamil
 course or from students' prior exposure to Tamil by some other means.  Basic
 knowledge of Tamil script, reading and writing in Tamil is required to take
 this course.  Heavy emphasis will be made on using the language in actual
 environments both in spoken medium and in written medium.  Multimedia
 materials such as audio and video facilities from the book and the website
 Tamil Language in Context (http://www.southasia.upenn.edu/tamil) will be used
 extensively to provide students an exposure to the Tamil culture and customs
 as followed in Tamilnadu, India.  Besides improving their speech and writing,
 students will also be introduced gradually to Tamil literature, which has two
 thousand years of literary history.  The learning process in this course will
 be facilitated by the lessons and videos as provided in the website and the
 book.  By the end of this course, students will have ACTFL's intermediate mid
 level proficiency in Tamil.
