Cross-listed: Africana Studies, Middle Eastern Studies Students are trained through the use of the most current pedagogical developments of communicative, visual and narrative methods developed by primarily AL-Kitaab fii Ta` allum al- `Arabiyya. Students will enlarge their speaking, reading, writing and comprehension skills in Modern Standard Arabic, the form of Arabic shared by all Arab countries. Classroom time is devoted to conversation (skits and discussions) and grammar exercises (including skim-reading tasks, spiraling and inference, analogy, problem solving, and educated guessing), stemming from the DVDs and other untainted materials. For example, in the course of the semester you will learn Arabic through a variety of musical traditions both classical and modern. The course will continue to introduce students to some Egyptian colloquial. Consistent emphasis is placed on authentic resources that derive from the most updated cultural contexts, realities and creative work of the Arab world such as gender issues, Arab-Muslim and Arab-Christian traditions, social clubs, ethnic groups, the role of the media etc. Students are expected to devote adequate time for homework, meet with a tutor every week to help them with homework and attend a session of Spoken Arabic. Class size: 22
