Arabic Intermediate Part 3 Course overview
The third and final part of this course is an opportunity to revisit some key topics and practice your skills.
You will increase your vocabulary and develop extra detail when talking about your hobbies, or expressing likes and dislikes. You’ll also learn how to describe food and follow written recipes – opening the door to new culinary skills, full of flavour and spice. Other elements of Arabic culture are explored, giving you an insight into pastimes and musical instruments.
There’ll be time to revisit some familiar grammar topics, such as Kana Sisters and conditional sentences, as well as how to express wishes and obligations.
By the end of the 10-weeks you will have reached CEFR B1 level.
Who is it for?
You should have studied Arabic for at least 160 hours and be able to communicate assuredly at CEFR A2 level. You may have completed part 2 of the intermediate course or hold a good GCSE. You’ll find more information in the eligibility section.
