Modern Standard Arabic: Intermediate Level, Part II, Lessons 14-30.
Abboud, Peter; And Others
This volume, the second of three texts for use in intermediate Arabic language courses, contains 17 lessons, each consisting of five main parts. Lessons 11 to 20 do not provide English translations for full sentences. The remaining lessons (21-30) are devoted to developing reading skills and bringing the student to the advanced level. The lessons include five main parts: (1) preparatory sentences, the text, and drills, (2) grammar notes and drills, (3) taped selection for development of oral comprehension and drill, (4) review materials, and (5) reading selections for extensive reading. Two main objectives are stated for this course: to develop the student's ability to read and comprehend Modern Standard Arabic and to develop aural comprehension of the language as it is spoken officially. Students are expected to have mastered "Elementary Modern Standard Arabic" before attempting this program. For Part 1 (lessons 1-13) and Part 3 (drills, glossary, and indexes), see FL 003 190 and FL 003 192. (RL)
