LANG 257
Fall 2006
Section: 01  

This course is a second-year, lower intermediate course in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), which will continue to focus on the four basic skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening. In this level, students will be able to speak enough Arabic to communicate at a basic level with a native speaker on a variety of topics. Students should be able to write simple texts on everyday themes and read uncomplicated authentic texts, such as a newspaper article on a familiar topic, and story books. Students will also be introduced to aspects of contemporary life and culture in the Arab world through films and cultural video clips. Class will focus on speaking as an effective way of learning (speak it to learn it). Oral drills and speaking activities will be done in the classroom and the class will be conducted fully in Arabic. The class meets three times a week with a mandatory additional fifty minutes speaking drill session for all students.
