Summer Intensive Arabic: Intermediate (Part A) Arabic: For Beginners (Accelerated)
This course is for you if you have completed
- Arabic 7 at Pacific Arabic, or
- one year of college-level Arabic at another institution
You'll greatly expand your vocabulary and understanding of Arabic verbs while approaching challenging readings. After finishing the eight-week course, you'll have greatly enhanced your listening and reading comprehension, and your comfort in producing the language in speech and writing.
The eight-week Intermediate Intensive course covers all the material of our second year Standard Arabic curriculum (Intermediate Arabic 1-3). The full eight-week course begins with a thorough treatment of Arabic verbs, along with real-life listening comprehension drills. After this initial "boot camp," the course will cover the first two units of Al-Kitaab, volume 2.
We strive to balance written and verbal skills. Class time involves plenty of speaking and drilling, and the 45 minutes each day of pure conversational practice ensure that you'll feel competent using your language skills in the real world. However, we give equal attention to developing your grasp of the written language.
20% of your tuition is nonrefundable under any circumstances. The remainder will be refunded if you withdraw before the beginning of the third class meeting. You can read more about our policies for intensive students here.
