FLL 101 Guided Independent Language Study (GILS): Elementary Arabic I

The GILS Elementary Arabic program covers both spoken and written Modern Standard Arabic with an emphasis on developing speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. Like GILS Arabic 100, GILS Arabic 101 emphasizes learning to read, write, and pronounce the Arabic script. It also covers basic conversational skills and culturally appropriate etiquette. For true beginners, successful completion for both courses (FLL 100-FLL 101) leads to a proficiency level equivalent to one semester of college-level Arabic study in a more traditional classroom setting.
