Arabic for Heritage Speakers II is a continuation course that follows Arabic for Heritage Speakers I - MLA 111. The course is designed for students of Arabic descent who are familiar with spoken Arabic ('Ammiyya) to develop proficiency in Modern Standard Arabic (Fusha), the variety of the language that is learned in school. MLA 112, and its predecessor, MLA 111, are intensive by design, as they combine into two semesters all of the material that is taught in four semesters of Basic Arabic. The two courses focus on the productive skills (speaking and writing) in Fusha, while simultaneously exposing students to grammar and vocabulary of a high register. Successful completion of both courses, i.e., MLA 111 and 112, will permit a student to enroll in Third Year Arabic. Modern Standard Arabic is the primary language of Instruction. Attachment IV
