Arabic is the fifth most popular language in the world, with major centers in North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. In this course, students will learn the basics of the Arabic language as they explore the history and culture of the Arabic world. Every week, hands-on (and delicious!) cooking projects will bring the subject to life, as students “visit” Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the diaspora, and beyond.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
