ALWT 000/3919 - El Ard Bititkallim ‘Arabi; Know Thy World in Arabic (3 cr.)

Thanawiyya Amma, or ALNG 2101-2102-2103 , or scoring at the advanced level in the ALI placement exam.

This course develops students’ skills in Modern Standard Arabic, the language of their direct community, by raising their bilingual awareness across it and English, the language of their university education.  Through readings in both English and Arabic, drawn from each class’s different mix of academic majors, together with targeted translation activities, it trains students to express in sound Arabic the academic knowledge base they are building in their respective fields.  As students’ mastery of their native language is thus enhanced, their connection to it is deepened, together with their sense of personal and cultural identity, and their commitment to engagement with their wider Arabic speaking community. 

This course meets 3 hours per week.
