ARA 201 - Intermediate Arabic I

Credits 3
Requirements: Pre req ARA 102
This course is designed to help intermediate students develop their abilities to communicate and interact in Arabic. Communication and interaction involve two important processes: the ability to produce language to say what you mean and the ability to understand language when others speak to you. This course will therefore develop your ability to carry out a number of functions in Arabic and also help you to comprehend, present and interact with oral and written texts. To this end we will use contextualized presentations of real life situations, history, culture and the arts to help you develop the vocabulary and structures necessary for you to understand, speak, read and write Arabic at the novice level. Classroom and homework activities will provide you with the communicative practice needed to achieve the learning outcomes of the course.
