Course description

Arabic Beginners (Year 1):

This Beginners Arabic short course is an introduction to the Arabic language and way of life for the purpose of practical communication. Modern Standard Arabic is taught with reference to dialects.

The Arabic script is introduced letter by letter with grouping depending on the shape of the shell. Listening and speaking exercises in the class reinforce the relationship between letters learnt and their associated sound.

Students learn about Arabic media, how to make polite requests and express likes and dislikes, and receive an introduction to food and drink. Students also learn to describe daily activities. The course runs over three terms and by the end of it, students will have an understanding of the structure of Arabic and will be able to speak, read, write and understand simple Arabic sentences.

Whether learning Arabic for travelling, working abroad or with foreign companies, the Arabic Beginners course will enable students to communicate confidently on a basic level in everyday situations, socialise and not feel out of place when visiting Arabic-speaking countries.

Additional entry requirements

If you want to study on the next in May (term 3) you should be able to talk about your daily activities; order in a cafe; describe a place and give directions; say what you like or dislike; use common irregular verbs in the present; use the imperative, possessive pronouns and common adverbs of frequency; or approximately 40 hours of formal prior study or have a 'rusty' GCSE.
