With the use of a slide show, students will practice pronouncing the Arabic words for colors and name articles of clothing.
The unit consists of one lesson in 12 parts. Seven sample vocabulary lessons are also included.
This is one of 6 units from the 2004 Egypt Seminar held at the Center for Middle East Studies at UC Santa Barbara.
