Course Description: The Conversation track utilizes the al-ʿArabiyya li-l-Nāshiʾīn curriculum, building speaking and conversation skills from the beginner up to the more advanced level through interactive classes which allow students to participate in real time. The curriculum covers everyday conversation topics and integrates listening, comprehension, and writing skills, gradually increasing vocabulary as students progress through the program. Recorded lessons included in the curriculum offer an alternative to traveling to Arabic-speaking countries to put listening and conversation skills into practice. In addition to these recorded lessons and the textbook, in-class practice allows students to apply these skills with the instructor and classmates.

In Level 1, students at the beginner level progress in their use of the Arabic language and are able to partake in simple conversations. Through the recorded lessons students begin to recognize new vocabulary words and understand their meanings, increasing their personal word bank.

Placement: If you are unsure about your level, email ribaat.arabic@rabata.org to request a placement test. Once you have submitted and tests have been assessed, you will receive a recommendation for the appropriate course for your level.  

Course Requirements: Students are expected to attend the weekly online lectures, complete one or more weekly assignments as assigned by the instructor, and review and sit for a midterm and a final exam.

Text: Al-ʿArabiyya li-l-Nāshiʾīn, Student Book 1.
