This course is an introduction to Arabic. Using a
communicative/proficiency oriented approach, we will begin to learn
how to speak, read, and write in Modern Standard Arabic. The course
is designed for students with no knowledge of Modern Standard Arabic.
We will begin with the alphabet, then move gradually to learn various
language skills.
