    GENERAL DESCRIPTION

    The objective of this introductory course to the Arabic Language is to offer a general understanding of this language in two areas. The first area is its linguistic history, where the students will learn about the origin, evolution, geographic diversity and characteristics of classical Arabic as well as modern Arabic. The second aspect focuses on instrumental linguistic elements, like the alphabet, calligraphy and an elementary contact with the language that allows the students to communicate in basic, daily-life situations.
