An Introduction to Arabic
مقدمة للغة العربية
Goal(s) of this CourseEdit
- To orient the student with a basic overview of the Arabic language, its place in the world (i.e. various dialects), its alphabet and numbering system.
- Arabic Textbook from Wikibooks كتاب اللغة العربية من ويكي الكتب
كِتَابُ وِيْكِيْ لِتَعْلِيمِ اللُّغَةِ العَرَبِيَّة
"Out of class" WorkEdit
- Tests in the future, at the end of each unit.
"Out of class" HelpEdit
I have found several free online courses that can aid the student and complement their studies with this course.
- Madinah Arabic Very well put together online course for free (And you know how wiki's love free things)
- I will work on this if possible daily to ensure it will be finished promptly, and I will have tests provided at the end of each unit that allow the student to gauge their progress, and through these the student can complete/continue the units if the instructor(s) are not available, as these tests self-correct and allow the students to see what they answered incorrectly. This course is still in its stages of infancy, but I hope this will be a help to those who have an interest in Arabic and wish to build a base to start their studies from.
