ARA 327K • Adv Spoken Media Arabic I

41395 • Lin, Cheng-Wei
Meets TTH 11:00AM-12:30PM PAR 308
show description

This the first of a two-course sequence. The objective of both classes is to train advanced students with interest in Middle Eastern and Arab current affairs in print and electronic media in the Arab world. Although the nuances of reporting and speaking publicly will be explored in detail, the course is an Arabic-as-a-foreign-language one. The ultimate objective of the course is for students to be able to conduct a press conference entirely in Arabic. The students will gain deep expertise in and about the Arabic media. We will be looking into the interplay between language, political culture and cultural identity. The course will focus on the two language skills: public speaking and 'public' listening. Students will read, listen to and view authentic and current materials from different Arab media sources, notably Al-Jazeera, BBC, Youtube, etc., and some select commentaries by some interesting columnists in the Arabic Press.
