Languages at UCSB (Arabic, Hindi)

<p>My friend (he has an account here but is too lazy to log in hahaha) really wants to learn Arabic next year at UCSB. We're also interested in Hindi. The website/catalog doesn't really have much info. Does anyone have any info at all? How are the classes/teachers? What's offered? What's the study abroad like? Basically anything at all. Thanks... :)</p>

<p>The Arabic and Hindi courses are both offered through the Religious</a> Studies department.</p>

<p>I don't know anyone that's taken those classes so I don't have any other info.</p>
