This course covers beginning to intermediate skills in spoken and written Arabic, including basic grammar structures, reading strategies, and speaking about familiar subjects such as family and personal life. Cultural activities are an important part of this course. Using the most widely used textbooks and engaging online activities built by BYU, students will learn to communicate in both spoken and formal Arabic. Regular speaking appointments (conducted using Adobe® Connect™) with one of our Arabic-speaking mentors is required. Live instructor-led lesson reviews/activities are broadcast regularly. This course is the third in a four-part Arabic series (ARAB 041, ARAB 043, ARAB 051, and ARAB 053).
This course has live speaking appointments with an Arabic-speaking mentor; a webcam, microphone, and speakers are necessary to conduct these appointments. Additionally, a printer/scanner is necessary for printing and scanning required written assignments. Please note, in addition to the textbook there is a $25 fee for the Al-Kitaab companion Website subscription.
Due to the nature of this course’s learning outcomes, the exams are only available in a paper format. Please plan for shipping time.
