In fall 2009, the Department of Modern and Classical Languages will offer a new course in Arabic Media, FRLN 330. The course is designed to provide students with the basic skills and vocabulary required for understanding the language of newspapers, magazines, television and internet news. It will cover a wide range of topics such as business, elections, political demonstrations, trials, conflicts, terrorism, disasters, and aid.
At the end of the course, students will be able to read and comprehend moderately complex Arabic texts from written or oral media sources. To be successful in this course, students should have a high intermediate knowledge of Arabic.
