The course will cover a range of topics relevant to every-day life situations, such as introducing oneself, giving/asking for phone numbers, buying/selling drink/food items & talking about the family. It will cover most of the Arabic alphabet (2-3 letters per lesson) and the pronunciation of sounds. The course will also cover basic grammar in the TL. The course will focus mainly on the skills of Speaking & Listening, but will also include an element of writing & reading. MSA (Modern Standard Arabic) will be the language of instruction and study during this course.
This course is suitable for anyone planning to go on vacation or work in an Arabic-speaking country. It is also suitable for those whose work involves interacting with native Arabic-speakers. That said, the course is open for anyone interested in learning more about middle-eastern culture through studying the language.
This course is for complete beginners, therefore no previous knowledge or experience in learning Arabic is required for enrolling on this course.
