ARB 10100 - Beginning Arabic I

The goal of this course is to begin developing reading, speaking, listening, writing, and cultural skills in Arabic. The course stresses communication using both formal and informal Arabic. Emphasis is also placed on reading authentic texts from Arabic media, listening to and watching audio and video materials, and developing students’ understanding of Arab culture. Preparation for class is an essential component of course, allowing us to devote in-class time to communicating in the language rather than talking “about” the language.  Students will be evaluated on attendance and class participation, daily homework assignments, quizzes, skits, a final oral interview and a final examination.
This class is not for native speakers. ARB 10100 usually not credited without ARB 10200. For details about credit policy look here: Foreign Language Requirement
