First offered in 2007, the Language Workshop's accelerated, proficiency-based Arabic program was developed in collaboration with the IU Arabic Flagship Program.The program combines formal classroom instruction and extracurricular activities to increase both the linugistic competence and the cultural literacy of participants. The program is based on the use of authentic materials, incuding the live participation of faculty and facilitators from the Arab world.
IMMERSE YOURSELF IN ARABIC
To maximize learning, Workshop students immerse themselves in Arabic language and culture; living, working, and eating with fellow students and faculty on the Arabic floor of the residence hall and by signing a language pledge to speak only Arabic for the duration of the program.
You will be challenged, perhaps more than you anticipate, but those students who adhere to the pledge and maintain immersion make measurably more progress in Arabic than students who do not.
Immerse yourself in Arabic this summer and see just how much you can do!
