ARAB 101 - Introductory Arabic I 3 s.h.

An introduction to the basics of Arabic. The course will be proficiency based, covering all four language skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing). We will place emphasis on active use of the language both in class and in daily homework assignments. By the end of the semester, students can expect to know the Arabic alphabet, to be able to read simple texts using a limited range of vocabulary and structures, to deliver an address about oneself in Arabic, and to engage in limited conversations with classmates, instructors and sympathetic native speakers. Students will also develop an acquaintance with some aspects of Arab culture through the exploration of Arabic-language media and Arabic-related web sites.
