This course is intended for anyone interested in learning the Arabic alphabet as well as basic communication skills in Arabic. Instead of emphasizing the complex grammatical and syntactical structure of the language, this course will spotlight useful Arabic words, phrases, and sentences in a way that will equip students to communicate on a basic level with native Arabic speakers. The course will concentrate on using, pronouncing, and understanding Arabic expressions through interaction with fellow students and the instructor.
