Arabic is a modern language spoken by hundreds of millions of people and a foundational language of human civilisation. This advanced-level module comprises: i) an academic term studying in an Arabic-speaking country (where circumstances allow); ii) a work placement relevant to the Arab World (where circumstances allow); and iii) a term of study back in Exeter. The module offers you the means to raise your proficiency to level C2 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). Through language, the module will deepen your exposure to Arabic cultural expression. You will use a variety of learning materials chosen by your lecturers. You will become familiar with various genres through reading, writing, translation and conversation. Your work experience and command of the language will be a significant employment asset.

If you have prior knowledge of Arabic acquired outside of your degree programme or have not completed the prerequisite modules, your level will be assessed by the module convenor in order to establish whether this module is suitable for you—admission in such cases is not guaranteed.¬†¬†
