Continuation of A300/A660

Advanced Arabic A350/670 has two fundamental objectives.  The first is to continue the
students' development of the four skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing modern
standard Arabic.  The second is to provide a thorough study of authentic materials in classical
prose to create a foundation for the mastery of classical Arabic.  The course will also involve
more extended readings and discussions of contemporary and historical cultural topics.  In
addition to a review of syntax and morphology, the course intends to increase the range and
accuracy or oral and written expression and aural comprehension.  Classes will be conducted
entirely in Arabic.
