Arabic is a modern language spoken by hundreds of millions of people and a foundational language of human civilisation. This is an intermediate-level module that extends your knowledge of the Arabic language, introducing you to new and more abstract fields of communication and taking your Arabic learning to level B1 (threshold) on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). Through language, the module will continue your exposure to Arabic cultural expression. You will use a textbook and a variety of learning materials selected by your tutors.
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.
