New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2018

ARAB 1.01 Intensive Beginning Arabic

Arabic 1-2 is a combined course of elementary to intermediate beginner Arabic that is built on the fundamentals experiential and skill-based learning. The focus of this course falls exclusively on Modern Standard Arabic- \u0627\u0644\u0639\u0631\u0628\u064A\u0629 \u0627\u0644\u0641\u0635\u062D\u0649 (MSA) -- the standard language for reading, writing, and all formal speech in the media and school instruction. It is the basic foundation for any serious engagement with the Middle East and North Africa. We focus on the progressive development of the four skills: speaking, reading, listening and writing. We start with the beginning level designed as a basic introduction to the Arabic language, where students learn vocabulary, basic grammatical structures, and effective participation in daily life interactions, to a beginner’s intermediate level that aims at building students’ skills in understanding written texts, oral and audio-visual materials on a wide variety of topics while continuing to strengthen their proficiency skills in Arabic. This first course is part of an intensive version of ARAB 001 and 002 combined in one term where students will be required to enroll in both courses.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
