Mastering Arabic is a 30 week course that has been devised for students that have either studied traditional sharia programmes such as the nizamiya where they often have little access to spoken Arabic, or anyone with an interest to develop their conversational or written Arabic skills. This course was intentionally structured to develop a student’s confidence by initially starting with a 30% Arabic 70% English class, aspiring to speaking entirely in Arabic towards the third trimester in an interactive and emersive environment with like minded students.
Upon completing this course, students
- Will have vastly improved vocabulary
- Increased confidence to speak in Arabic
- More comfortable with listening to and understanding spoken Arabic
- Basic to intermediate formal writing skills
