High Intermediate Arabic II

This level builds on the writing and conversational skills the students already have in order to take them up to the advanced proficiency level. The students study literary discourse and news reports, along with listening to authentic interviews and talks, write lengthy assignments, and give short oral presentations. In addition, they review some advanced grammatical rules on daily basis. They also choose one of the dialects offered in the School to acquire the necessary conversational skills that would enable them to engage in a meaningful discourse with educated Arabs in a medium that is not considered artificial or unfamiliar in the Arab World. The study of the dialect is uniquely integrated into the general curriculum emphasizing the linguistic realities in the Arab World. Work outside of class requires between four to five hours a day.
