    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would most definitely recommend this course, as long as you have a passion and interest in learning Arabic. It can be a very complex language and takes more than just the allotted time in class to fully understand the language and to set yourself up for success. The instructor wants everyone to succeed and has made many accommodations to help set students up to receive an "A"

    Course highlights:

    I learned the Arabic alphabet, short vowels, basic conjugations and enough information to hold a simple conversation in Arabic about thing such as who I am, greetings, feelings and emotions and also asking questions

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that you should go to Office hours and spend as much time studying and practicing outside of class to make sure you're understanding the material.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class to someone who is interested in learning Arabic, and might not know where to start. If you're anything like me, and you learned Arabic for 8 years, this class will be a piece of cake for you, an easy A! If you have absolutely no background knowledge, you'll love this class! This class will start you off with the Arabic alphabet and end with you speaking Arabic with your friends! You'll be absolutely prepared for Arabic 2 once you've completed this class.

    Course highlights:

    Because I learned Arabic for a chunk of my life, there wasn't much to actually learn in this class, for ME personally; however, I did learn some new vocabulary, new grammar rules, and new sentences to write. If I had absolutely no background knowledge of Arabic whatsoever, there are tons of things I would have (newly) learned.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have no experience with Arabic, then I highly recommend practicing a lot! Try to spend a lot of time reading/looking over your notes or handouts. If you don't understand something, do not hesitate to reach out to the professor; he's very kind and easy to talk to. If you already have a background in Arabic, don't slack just because you know the material. Do the work, and you'll pass the class easily.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned so much. Professor Al-Mandawee was really devoted to teaching us the language while making it fun. He really cares about his students, and you can tell because he does not move on until everyone says that they completely understand. Part of the responsibility, however, is on the student to ask questions, so that he knows what you need help on! Just be patient. Arabic is tough at first but extremely rewarding.

    Course highlights:

    In my introductory Arabic class with Professor Al-Mandawee, I learned a TON about the Arabic language. I learned the letters by heart and all their forms (beginning, connective, ending), how to write sentences just by listening, and a lot of vocabulary. The class is set up in table groups, and you quickly grow close to those who you sit with so you will most likely end up with wonderful, supportive friends!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are organized. You will need to set aside time to do your homework. The second you have a question, you should ask, because sometimes waiting too long will be too late! Asking someone to explain something to you will also help you make study buddies outside of class, and that will help if any of your friends decide to continue in Arabic.
