The course syllabus gives you a suggested breakdown of the number of tasks that you need to complete on a daily basis while taking Arabic Without Walls. The syllabus functions like a "map" that helps you navigate the course contents presented under Course Content as Al-Kitaab, Interviews, and Culture. The syllabus is the thread that links all three sections of the course. The choice of the tasks suggested in the syllabus and the sequence in which they are presented provide a balance between the course objectives and the projected pace for covering the materials. If you find that you are spending a lot more time or a lot less time than is suggested for the day, please contact your instructor.
