The Advanced Low 2 world language course offers students who have reached a high level of Arabic language proficiency by following a non-native / non-heritage language learning progression in school, the opportunity to expand their world language learning for a second year at the Advanced Low level. Students continue to engage in a variety of informal and formal conversations on topics of personal, community and global interest. They build their presentational skills, narrating and describing in the major time frames of past, present, and future, combining and linking sentences into connected discourse of paragraph length with sufficient accuracy, control and clarity to convey their intended message. They also explore literature in the target language.
Students can converse comfortably with others from Arab cultures in familiar and some unfamiliar situations and show some understanding of cultural differences. They can also demonstrate awareness of subtle differences among cultural behaviors and adjust their behavior accordingly in familiar and some unfamiliar situations.
