This course uses Read & Speak Arabic For Beginners (by Jane Wightwick & Mahmoud Gaafar) and includes the following topics: the alphabet, pronunciation, greetings, days of the week, nationalities, masculine and feminine nouns, ordering food and drinks, describing location, asking for and giving directions, talking about family members, numbers, and talking about jobs.
The Level 2 Arabic course reviews the material covered in Hansa's Level 1 course. Students then use al-Kitab al-asasi (by El-Said Badawi). Students develop their listening, speaking and reading skills while learning more vocabulary and grammatical structures.
Please note: material will be covered at the pace of the class; some of the above topics may not be covered, as the course will be geared towards the needs of the class as a whole. Some of the curriculum may be modified at the instructor's discretion.
