Advanced Arabic I|
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
Arabic 301 is the fifth semester of Arabic MSA and is designed for students who have had at least two full years of Arabic MSA or its equivalent.
This first semester of third-year Arabic will continue to emphasize the four skills in language learning mainly through readings that introduce students to more advanced topics that draw from literature, Arab Media, sciences and other disciplines. The course will be conducted entirely in Arabic, apart from cases where intricate grammar concepts necessitate English use.
The course is communicative proficiency-based, and students will continue to do role-play, pair work, write weekly reports and commentaries and give regular in-class feedback/presentations. They are expected to contribute orally to class discussions and lectures.
Arab culture and history will continue to be systematically integrated in the course through constant reference. Regional dialects will continue to be referred to, with the purpose of comparing them to Modern Standard Arabic.
