   Arabic - Step 1Tell a Friend!
      Dr. Estiphan Panoussi, Professor Emeritus of Arabic from the University of Gothenberg, Sweden, will teach you to read, write, and speak classical Arabic and other Semitic languages (mainly Hebrew, Aramaic, and Syriac; Farsi and Pashtu, though written in Arabic alphabet, are not Semitic languages, but belong instead to the same Indo-European tree to which English, amongst others, belongs). You will learn the Arabic consonantal alphabet and its phonological value. After the above phonological approach, you will learn how to read and write Arabic from right to left, identifying which of the written letters are to be considered as either a consonant or a vowel. The course will also cover morphology, syntax, and readings of vocalized and non-vocalized Arabic texts. Fee: $300 (Material fee due at class: $30)
