Summer Program:

The Center for Arab and Middle East Studies at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon announces a Summer Program in the Arabic language June 5-July 14, 2000.
The program features three courses: Introductory Arabic, Intermediate Arabic, and Colloquial Arabic. All courses provide a total immersion format combining intensive classroom instruction in Arabic with field trips, café sessions, Arabic speaking clubs, and visits to markets, art galleries and theaters. The program also features an excellent language laboratory and individualized tutoring sessions.
Both the beginning and the intermediate classes meet for twenty hours per week for the six-week duration of the course. Each course is the equivalent to one year (two semesters/8 credit hours/120 contact hours) of language study at US universities. The course in Colloquial Arabic meets for 2.5 hours per week throughout the six-week period and is the equivalent of a one credit course (15 contact hours in the US). The Al-Kitab series will be used as the main textbooks of instruction for both the beginning and intermediate courses.
The total fees for the program are $3,200 and include tuition, housing (student dormitories), health insurance, Internet access, and usage of the university sports facilities. Fees also cover cultural trips around the city. Fees do not include air travel.
Individuals interested in the Summer Arabic Program should apply by April 30th for the following summer. Applicants should include an academic or professional letter of reference with their application. For further information, please contact: or
