This course requires no previous knowledge of Arabic. Classes meet at Dictyon once a week for 2.5 hours. Each session is divided into three 50-minute instruction periods. In Arabic 101 emphasis is placed on pronunciation, familiarization with the Arabic alphabet, high-frequency vocabulary building, basic grammar, and conversation. Reading and listening materials, conversations and lectures have been selected to reflect life in the broad Middle Eastern region today.

Objectives

At the end of the course, the student will be able to:

  • Produce and understand short, memorized phrases
  • Ask questions or make statements with reasonable accuracy using memorized utterances
  • Read isolated words and phrases, personal and place names, street signs, office and shop designations
  • Write own name, nationality, address, etc., such as on a hotel registration form

Maximum Group Size

As with all our classes, in order to maximize our student’s learning experience the maximum number of students per group is limited to 5.
