Arabic Intermediate Part 2 Course overview
In part 2 you will practice how to give detailed descriptions of work and professions and learn to understand Arabic media. We will teach you how to identify and interpret Arabic signs and information – essential for finding your way around an Arabic speaking country.
More complex grammar is taught, which includes permutative nouns, conditional sentences and additional conjunction particles.
Not only this, but you’ll also gain an insight into the culture and customs of Arab speaking countries, so you avoid cultural misunderstandings or causing accidental offence.
If you enjoy part 2, you can enrol on part 3 of the course in April/May term to work towards CEFR B1 level.

Join us here if you have approximately 140 hours of prior learning or can communicate at CEFR A2 level of Arabic. You may have completed part 1 of the Arabic Intermediate course or hold a good or recent GCSE. More information can be found in the eligibility section.

We don’t set a formal exam at the end of the course, but you will be assessed on your progress throughout, both in class and through homework activities.
Our tutors encourage ‘active learning’ where you participate in interactive role plays, group work and discussions, rather than being lectured to and learning by rote. This means you get more time to practice your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
Newspapers, advertisements, and announcements are used, which not only helps you learn practical language but also offers an insight into the culture you’ll find when visiting Arab speaking countries.
