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.
