CANCELED: LEVEL I: Standard Arabic for Native Speakers

May 31, 2014-Jun 01, 2014

Teachers: Dalia Gheith

Learning Arabic Through Cultural Immersion
The Arabic Language Studies Program at Alwan teaches Standard and Colloquial Arabic while exposing students to the linguistic and cultural dimensions of the language. From pop culture, food, and film to classical poetry, music, and short stories, these courses draw from the rich reservoir of Arabic language cultural products to reinforce Arabic grammar and vocabulary. By engaging with relevant cultural materials, students will encounter Arabic as a living language, mastering issues of grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation within social contexts.  

This course offers an introduction to Standard Arabic for native speakers and will be taught in Levantine & Standard Arabic. Students will focus on the Arabic alphabet and building basic skills in Standard Arabic. Uniquely designed to build upon students’ knowledge of spoken colloquial Arabic, this course will teach students to read and write in Arabic and will cover some essentials of practical Arabic grammar.The class is limited to 12 students. 

This course is open to anyone, age 12 and up, who can understand spoken Levantine Arabic.
