Description: A yearlong course that introduces the basics of Modern Standard Arabic language, this course concentrates on all four skills: speaking, listening, reading, writing. Beginning with a study of Arabic script and sound, students will complete the Georgetown text Alif Baa and finish Chapter 15 in Al Kitaab Book 1 by the end of the academic year. Students will acquire vocabulary and usage for everyday interactions as well as skills that will allow them to read and analyze a range of texts. In addition to the traditional textbook exercises, students will write short essays and participate in role-playing, debates, and conversations throughout the year.
