AAPTIS 215 is intended for undergraduate students who plan to travel or to work in Egypt and for those who need Arabic for immediate use. Egyptian Arabic is also fairly widely understood throughout Arabic speaking countries. This course provides oral and communicative practice based on situational dialogues as used by native speakers in Cairo, Egypt. In the beginning, the basic principles of pronunciation, grammar, and functional vocabulary are emphasized through oral and pattern practice drills. Towards the end of the course emphasis shifts to practical use of the dialect based on expanded vocabulary and situational dialogues containing more cultural and idiomatic content than the first lessons. The course is accompanied by audio recordings of pronunciation drills, situational dialogues, vocabulary and idiomatic expressions, and listening comprehension passages. Students are also introduced to principles of Egyptian phonology through studying word juncture and outlining morpho-phonetic changes, which improves their listening comprehension of Egyptian Arabic.

Intended audience: Undergraduates

Course Requirements: Attendance and active participation, daily written assignments, quizzes, midterm and final exam.

Class Format: This course will be taught in a recitation format, meets 3 hours per week, and may be taught by a GSI.
