ARA 380C • Arabic Readings and Grammar I
10:00 AM-11:00 AM
The course, which builds upon ARA 506, 507 and 412L, emphasizes composition, comprehension and conversation in Modern Standard Arabic. Oral discourse is maintained at maximal level, and small group/individual instruction sessions supplement the regular class routine. Audio-visual materials are frequently used. Students write short papers, present topics to the class and lead class discussions. Active participation in class discussions is a decisive element in students' participation grade.
