Studies in Islam is proud to announce the start of its newest course in Fall 2017 - SI 120R Literary Arabic for Heritage Speakers.
Designed for heritage speakers who have had some meaningful exposure to Arabic (usually a spoken dialect), this language course focuses on improving technical literacy in Modern Standard Arabic (Fusha) by concentrating on grammar and literary skills. Upon finishing, students will be prepared to join non-heritage students in either intermediate or advanced Arabic.
This course is meant for students who have been exposed to Arabic at home or lived in an Arabic speaking country but do not possess linguistic competence and literacy of native speakers.
Basic knowledge of Arab culture and geography is recommended and completion of a student assessment required.
We are very excited about this course as it provides even more students with the opportunity to learn Arabic with us!
