Course description

Arabic (Modern Standard) Beginners 1:

The aim of this course is to provide students with a basic knowledge of ‘standard’ Arabic, which is the dialect common to the entire Arabic-speaking part of the world and not specifically associated with any given country or region. A good grounding in Modern Standard Arabic is the basis from which learners may progress to the study of vernacular forms, such as Egyptian or Levantine Arabic.

The course covers grammar and essential vocabulary and focuses on the four language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing), aiming to enable students to communicate in everyday situations. The course is taught in English and Arabic, and a variety of materials specifically created by SOAS Language Centre teachers are used alongside the main textbook.

In class, students are encouraged to interact with each other using Arabic, practising the vocabulary and structures learnt in pairs or in small groups. Outside of the class, students are encouraged to revise what has been taught, so that progress may be made as the material covered becomes more complex. Participants are asked to put sufficient time aside between sessions to undertake the necessary consolidation.
