Dream is a rigorous 9-month program that covers listening, speaking, reading and writing in both Classical Standard and Modern Standard Arabic.
The course’s classical Arabic portion will give students the ability to linguistically analyze Arabic texts, including the Qur’an, and to understand the nuances involved in translation. Students will also be able to navigate a number of classical and contemporary Arabic texts and understand complex linguistic tools.
Our Modern Standard Arabic component enables students to compose, read, comprehend and speak formal Arabic up to an intermediate proficiency. The curriculum places a great deal of emphasis on correct speech while utilizing appropriate phrases and anecdotes in their proper context.
The combination of classical and modern Arabic will empower students to research and navigate Arabic texts, have discussions with scholars and benefit from the rich sources of media from the Arab world. The skills of speaking and reading of modern Arabic will give students the tools that allow them to interact with Arab society without compromising the historical integrity of the language.
