Provides a thorough grounding in all language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. It starts with spoken Arabic and gradually integrates Modern Standard Arabic in the form of listening and reading texts. Emphasis is on learning the language through using it in meaningful contexts. Students who successfully complete the two-semester sequence are able to (1) understand and actively participate in simple conversations involving basic practical and social situations (e.g., introductions, greetings, school, home and family, work, simple instructions); (2) read Arabic material of limited complexity and variety (e.g., simple narrative and descriptive texts, directions); (3) write notes and short letters describing an event or a personal experience. An important objective of the course is to familiarize students with basic facts about the geography, history, and culture of the Arab world.
