Hmong Language Studies
The following courses are offered on a rotating basis:
- World Languages: Elementary Hmong MLG 101 and 102 (four credits) - In this course, students gain elementary knowledge of speaking, reading, and writing the Hmong language. Specifically, participants have fun learning simple phrases and sentences while acquiring 200-500 vocabulary words. Students develop basic oral, reading, and written language skills. In addition, students gain an understanding of and regard for the richness of Hmong culture and tradition and appreciate the experiences involved in learning another language.
- Intermediate Hmong Heritage Language: MLG 204 (four credits) - Hmong Heritage Language provides opportunities for students to develop intermediate-level heritage language reading, writing, and vocabulary skills. Students will learn their heritage language writing system in order to read and write short texts, with additional emphasis placed on geographical variation with the heritage language.
- Advanced Hmong Heritage Language: MLG 304 (four credits) - Designed for native speakers, MLG 304 is an advanced level of Hmong Heritage Language. Students will substantially build their vocabulary and increase the skill and sophistication of their reading, writing, and oral language skills. Dr. Bee Lo, an experienced instructor from the local La Crosse Hmong community, will explore common cultural practices in the Hmong-American community to deepen students' knowledge and understanding of the language itself.
