Continuation of A200/A600

Intermediate Arabic 250/650 is a continuation of the foundation provided by A200/600.  It will
focus on the mastery of basic grammar, and more complex structures, acquisition and expansion
of vocabulary, and the development of skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking.  These
objectives are achieved through class discussion and study of authentic written texts, and through
intensive oral/aural practice using authentic 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.
