Intermediate Arabic I is a continuation of A150/A550.  It will focus on the mastery of grammar,
including more complex structures, acquisition and expansion of vocabulary, and the development of
reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills.  These objectives are achieved through intensive
oral/aural practice using audio and video materials.  In addition to working on all language skills, special
attention will be given to the morphology and syntax of Arabic.  Classes will be conducted in Arabic as
much as possible.
