The AAPTIS sequence 403-404 is designed for students who want to pursue their Arabic for academic and professional purposes. AAPTIS 403 continues development of students’ four language skills through a variety of reading texts representing modern Arabic prose fiction and non-fiction combined with interactive multimedia lessons focusing on listening and communication. Students are expected to do the listening passages and interactive exercises and activities in the computer lab, saving class time for group oral practice and creating and performing skits. Use of Arabic is emphasized throughout the whole course. Evaluation is based on class attendance, participation, written assignments, occasional quizzes, mid-term and a final exam including an oral interview.

Textbooks: Al-Kitab, Part Two by Brustad et al., (Lessons 5-8); Arabic for Communication: Interactive Multimedia Program (Lessons 11-15).
