This is the second of four volumes. This program will focus on writing in Amharic and introduces sentence construction. Here is a highlight of what Amharic 102 will teach you ...
WRITING IN AMHARIC: Printed and Written Amharic are not always the same in Amharic. This section will teach you how to write Amharic. We use the beautiful scripts of a native Ethiopian person to teach you the proper way of writing (see Demo for an example).
GRAMMAR: We will spend a great deal of time on grammar in this program since we will introduce sentence construction. There is a lot of material in this Lesson. Here are some examples:
VOCABULARY: We will learn a great deal of new verbs and other vocabulary words in preparation for sentence construction.
AMHARIC VERBS: We will learn a great deal of material on Amharic Verbs. This includes the difference between regular and irregular verbs, relationship between verbs that start with 'mu' Vs. 'ma', importanceof verb roots, suffix, and prefix, and more.
VERB CONJUGATION: You will learn verb conjugation in the present tense. We have developed rules of conjugation over the past ten years with the help of educators from Ethiopia and USA that is unique and only found in our programs. This section will spend a great deal of time teaching you these rules.
SIMPLE SENTENCE CONSTRUCTION: We will learn a great deal of new verbs and other vocabulary words in preparation for sentence construction.
MORE IMPORTANT PHRASES: Each program has a section called "Quick Fix". You will learn important and often used phrases in this section. From simple greetings to asking various questions.
