Description for ARABIC101: Arabic 101 is designed for students with no previous knowledge, or very limited knowledge of the Arabic language. The first part of this course focuses on learning the script, sound and writing systems in Arabic. Building upon these skills, in the second part of the course, we will focus on the four communication skills (reading, speaking, listening and writing) of Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). We will also immerse ourselves in Arabic language and culture through various activities designed around the audio-visually enhanced Maha and Khalid, and their family storyline.
