ARAB 101 - Elementary Arabic I
(3 hours) This will be an interdisciplinary course that will enable students to achieve a basic working proficiency in modern standard Arabic. It will include interpersonal, presentational, and interpretive language activities that incorporate the skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Traditional language instruction in the classroom will be supplemented in a variety of ways to enhance students’ linguistic proficiency and their cultural awareness. These will include conversation activities in Arabic based on real-world scenarios. Students will also be exposed to authentic language-based products of different Arab cultures including Arabic music, movies, radio and television broadcasts, newspapers, magazines, and calligraphy.
Note: This course will not satisfy the language requirement for the liberal arts core.
