This course gives a thorough grounding in Modern Written Arabic, focusing on newspapers, editorials, essays, books, and periodicals. Please Note: This program is intended for those who have already learned the Arabic writing system and have reasonably accurate Arabic pronunciation.

About the Language
Arabic is spoken by over 250 million people in the Middle East, across northern Africa, and in much of southwestern Asia. While Modern Arabic is written the same everywhere, many regional spoken dialects have developed, some of which diverge so widely that they might be considered separate languages. Nonetheless, speakers from different parts of the Arab world can often understand each other, particularly if they come from similar educational or cultural backgrounds.
