Mastering Arabic 1, Unit 15. Exercises 1 through 6.
Homework for next class:
Mastering Arabic 1, Unit 14, exercise 14 on a loose sheet of paper, with your name on it, and turn it in to me in the next class.
Mastering Arabic 1, Unit 15: Do the bottom of exercise 12 on p. 209, where you have to rewrite the paragraph in third person. Do exercises 7, 8, 9, and 10, if you have time. Next time we will do the exercise on page 210; please think ahead about what you will need to say. We can also go over your answers to exercise 9 in class.
Finish Mastering Arabic 1, Unit 17. If you do not have a paper dictionary, it may be difficult for you to do exercise 14, but at least carefully read the explanation of weak verbs on page 240. If you have time, do exercise 15, which is a writing exercise. (Remember: You should be putting in about five hours of study/homework per week, so don’t feel obliged to do this if you’ve spent that much time on the other exercises.) Be sure to watch the video described at the bottom of page 242. It’s on the Mastering Arabic official website.
