Arabic 4 syllabus, January–March 2018

The following is the overall syllabus for UvA Talen Arabic 4, January–March 2018. I will use this syllabus not only to lay out our plan, but also to document what we did and indicate the homework.

A couple of useful links:

Lesson Material Covered
Lesson 1
25/1
During class:

  • We read and discussed text 1a in Arabisch stap voor stap, deel 2. (Yes, this is review.)
  • Mastering Arabic 2, Unit 1. We did exercises 1, 2, and 3.
  • This may not sound like all that much, but we did a lot of speaking practice using the vocabulary that came up in the texts.
  • It was pointed out to me that there are official vocabulary memorization packages for Mastering Arabic on Memrise!

Homework for next class:

  • Arabisch stap voor stap, deel 2, read texts 1b and 2a.
  • Mastering Arabic 2, Unit 1, exercises 4, 5, and 6. We can look at your answers to exercise in the next class. Learn the new vocabulary in Unit 1, and read as far ahead in it as you have time for.

During class:
