Objectives of the Course:
The course is a follow up of Constructions 1. It is at the intersection of grammar, writing, and translating, seeking to enable the beginning students of the department to move smoothly between English and Arabic and between Arabic and English ones.
As such, the course is an occasion for students to put side by side grammatically well-formed sentences in both languages. To do so, the course gives hands-on general practice in formulating and translating kernel sentences in Arabic and English on grammatical principles.
