This course is taught in Arabic; English is used when necessary or requested by students in particular situations or grammar explanations. Our programme aims to develop the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing as well as cultural awareness. It provides a good balance between understanding the culture, vocabulary and grammar structures of the Arabic language and enhancing communication and interaction. It supports comprehensive and productive skills in speech and writing through authentic activities and guided practice in the use of Arabic language. Students will be encouraged to seek opportunities to learn and practise the four skills outside the classroom taking advantage of learning resources provided by tutors and the programme. The group size is limited to 12 students and planned to allow intensive interactive practice with individual feedback and advice on progress.
Upon completing the Intermediate level (3), you can progress onto the Upper-intermediate level (4). If you would like to register your interest in the Upper-intermediate course please email us directly.
