    Summary

    Our fully online Arabic program for high school and college students targets the novice mid and novice high proficiency levels and will consist of daily synchronous and asynchronous language learning experiences (Mon-Thurs). We aim to enroll up to 38 students, providing a total of 100 hours of instruction over five weeks of online language study. The theme of our updated program is classical Arabic literary heritage. By the end of our program, students will know about genres of Arabic literature, famous persons, interesting locales, and will be able to talk with others about cultural exchange and influence, and will have enhanced their abilities in the modes of communication as a foundation for further intermediate level study. They will be able to present information on historical eras and figures, stories from Arab culture, and aspects of daily life that have changed and/or remained the same.
