Arabic is a modern language spoken by hundreds of millions of people and a foundational language of human civilisation. This is an advanced-level module that extends your knowledge of the language, honing your ability to communicate orally and textually on a full compliment of subjects and register. It provides you with the means and opportunity to take your Arabic reading, writing, oral and aural skills to level C1 or C2 (mastery-proficiency) 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.

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.
