ARA 201 - Intermediate Arabic I, 4 credit hours


Prerequisite(s): ARA 102  or equivalent
This third semester course continues building the students’ intermediate knowledge of Modern Standard Arabic and completes the book used in ARA 101  and ARA 102 . The course will provide opportunities for students to solidify and augment the grammar learned in Elementary Arabic as it introduces new vocabulary. It will focus on the development of the ability to use Modern Standard Arabic orally and in reading and writing. Topics include describing activities, professions, places, events, and states of affairs. Exercises include writing, relating information from written sources, and expressing thoughts and oneself. The course will also include an oral component, in which students will practice their Arabic oral communication skills. This will be assessed through specific presentations and projects, which will allow the students to further develop and build on the oral aspect of the Arabic language. Students who complete this course should be able to initiate discussion on topics of daily life and understand and produce more complicated life scenarios.
