               Start Date September 4th, 2019 to October 23nd, 2019

     In this 8-week course, students will build on the background knowledge gained in any Basic Arabic Course. Learners will study the subject pronouns, possessive pronouns, verb sentence, question words, plurals, present and past tense, verb measures, to want + Verb, to be+ noun sentence, active/ passive participle, active/passive voice. Each class will end with an intermediate conversation as part of preparation for the OPI interview.

    This course adopts a student-centered communicative approach. It is an interactive method that focuses on written and spoken speech to be identified and tackled by the student. 

  The materials used draw on a variety of Arabic language teaching material, media content, and audio-visual aids selected by the Language and Culture Institute to meet the needs of the class.

  The course consists of class work and homework. It is designed to be both educational and fun for the learner. Language is learned more readily when students are encouraged to learn interactively in a fun and relaxed atmosphere both through classwork and homework. 

    The instructors are native speakers of Arabic. Course Director Mr. Eli Missouri has an MA in foreign language teaching. He taught Arabic at the University of Pennsylvania and Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is also an OPI interviewer. Most recently, he has been working for the US Department of State as a simultaneous conference interpreter on contract.
