This is the second semester of the Beginning Arabic sequence. This course will continue building the listening, speaking, reading and writing skills students acquired in Arabic 101. Arabic 102 will also develop your competence in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) primarily. The students will be equipped with the vocabulary, reading facility, grammatical skills as well as the cultural competence they need to navigate familiar topics and simple communication situation in MSA. Students will expand the range of topics, grammar, tenses, and pronouns they use to express themselves both orally and in writing in MSA. This second semester will allow students to listen (to), speak, read, and write about a variety of topics that are geared toward consolidating and enriching their prior acquisitions in Arabic.
Format: lecture; five hours a week
Grading: no pass/fail option,
no fifth course option
weekly quizzes, daily homework, in-class participation, skits, presentations, recordings, and assiduous participation in cultural events organized by the department in Arabic (Arabic table; movie nights etc)
In the event the course is over-enrolled, priority will be given to students majoring or intending to major in Arabic Studies.
students registered for ARAB 101 and 102 are required to attend and pass the sustaining program during the winter study period; credit is granted only if both semesters (ARAB 101 and 102) are taken.
