Wolof in Senegal holds the status of a lingua franca for the great majority of the population and is key to understanding Senegalese culture and realities. In fact, it is spoken by more than 70 percent of Senegalese citizens of diverse ethnic backgrounds.
This program will be delivered through a three-credit online course that is designed to introduce beginning learners to Wolof through in-class interaction, assignments, music, art, poetry, and other forms of online media.
In addition to this online course, SIT is also offering a three-week, supplementary, intensive Wolof Language J-term immersion program in Senegal.
