This is the second semester of the Beginning Arabic sequence. It builds on the foundation of Arabic competence that you established in Arabic 101, and will continue to develop your competence in Modern Standard Arabic and one variety of spoken Arabic. The course will continue to focus on day-to-day situations and familiar topics from the immediate environment while expanding the range of topics, tenses, pronouns, and materials that students will learn and deploy in their daily engagement with the course content. The second term will broaden the scope of linguistic and cultural tasks students are expected to perform.
Format: lecture; five hours a week
Grading: no pass/fail option,
no fifth course option
quizzes, daily homework, active class participation, presentations, skits, writing assignments, and a variety of culture-centered activities.
