*Al-Kitaab does not present material in the same order as the text we use. Therefore, students new to PAR are encouraged to purchase Mastering Arabic early and review the topics presented in previous courses before their first class meeting.
*You may register for the full level or only half. Either way, you'll have eight weeks (56 days) to complete your lessons. If you can meet an average of once per week you can save $30 by registering for the full level.
