ARAB 001. Intensive Elementary Modern Standard Arabic
Students who start in the ARAB 001-002 sequence must complete 002 to receive credit for 001.
The purpose of this course is to develop students' proficiency and communication in modern standard Arabic in the four basic language skills: listening, speaking, reading (both oral and for comprehension), and writing. Cultural aspects are built into the course. These courses, as well as subsequent Arabic-language courses, help students to advance rapidly in the language and prepare them for more advanced work in literary Arabic, as well for employment, travel, or study abroad. By the end of this sequence, the majority of students are expected to reach a level of intermediate low, according to the ACTFL proficiency rating.
