This section is specifically designed for students with prior exposure to reading and writing Arabic who already know the alphabet, and others who wish to pursue Arabic for academic and research purposes in literary fields, such as Arabic literature, linguistics and Islamic Studies.

Elementary Modern Standard Arabic I is the first of a two-term sequence in elementary Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). It starts with an introduction to Arabic phonology and script. This is followed by situational dialogues and short reading passages including basic vocabulary and fundamental grammatical structures. The course offers combined training in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The students are provided with opportunities to practice standard Arabic through the use of highly-structured drills, contextualized exercises and listening and reading short passages. There will be special focus on reading, translation and writing.

Course requirements include daily preparation of the basic texts and the grammatical explanations, oral practice utilizing newly learned vocabulary and structures, reading and listening to short texts and writing activities including filling out forms, supplying simple biographical information, writing short descriptions of people and places.

Students enrolled in this LITERARY section are expected to continue in subsequent sections through AAPTIS 202.
