Content

This unit continues the work undertaken in AIB251 Arabic 2A and introduces students to more advanced texts in Arabic. It will also cover the remainder of essential aspects of Arabic grammar so that by the end of this unit students will have acquired a strong language foundation. Students will increase their oral fluency by participating in discussions dealing with a wide range of topics and issues. By reading a variety of styles used by novelists and journalists, students will be sensitised to discourse structures of Arabic unlike those familiar to them in English.
