Intermediate Arabic II is the continuation of Intermediate Arabic I. This course provides additional practice to help students attain a higher level of skill development (e.g., listening, speaking, reading and writing) and linguistic accuracy. This course adopts a skills-based approach in which students gain mastery of the language through the use of authentic materials taken from various sources (books, periodicals, videos and radio documentaries). The selection of the materials is based on the complexity of the tasks and the students’ professional and personal interests. Teaching vocabulary and grammar is integrated to the skills-based activities, and is incorporated in the class activities as an aid to overcome any communication problems. Teaching techniques are student-centered, with the instructor as the facilitator. Instructions will be conducted mostly in Arabic.
