Afaan Oromo I

Class Description

The Oromo Nation, its land known as Oromia, is located in the Horn of Africa, sharing borders with Sudan, South Sudan, Kenya, Somalia and other nations in Ethiopia. Oromia has a rich cultural heritage and great political, military and economical significance due to its sheer population size, natural wealth, and geographic location. It is considered to be the bread basket of Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa. One of the Cushitic languages of the Horn, Afaan Oromo (or Oromiffaa) is spoken by more than 50 million people on the Horn of Africa and is the second most widely spoken language in Sub-Saharan Africa.

This introductory course series will teach you how to read, write and speak the Oromo language as well as master Qubee Afaan Oromoo (the Oromo alphabet). Course content consists of: Qubee Affaan Oromoo and adoption of Latin letters for its writing, pronunciation of Oromo words, grammar and verb conjugations, sentence structures, and basic conversations. You’ll be able to assess your learning based on class activities, weekly quizzes, a video project and a final test.
