"This course continues the work in ARA 1311 and ARA1312. It attempts to lead students towards Mid Intermediate by activating and developing the fundamentals of Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) through reading, speaking, listening and writing, within a framework of syntax, morphology, and a working vocabulary.

In this course you will be introduced to basic topics in MSA in order to expand your vocabulary, your knowledge of grammar, sharpen your listening skills and push you towards writing more in Arabic. All this is done through exposing students both to materials of AL-Kitaab in addition to authentic materials such as printed materials, the internet and videos."
