Student Responsibilities :
Attending and participating in class activities. Most of the language skills to be developed cannot be acquired without effective participation and interaction with other students and with the instructor.  My expectation is that we can build an Arabic-speaking community through teamwork.
Doing homework exercises. This out-of-class practice is essential for reinforcement of classroom learning, reading, and writing.
