Arabic Lower Intermediate Part 3 Course overview
The third and final module, part 3, introduces fresh topics and more complicated grammar to help you reach a new level of proficiency.
You’ll learn to describe professions, give directions and discuss travel-related activities, as well as talk in greater detail about family relationships. We’ll revise past grammar structures and show you how to express uncertainty in Arabic.
At the end you will have achieved CEFR A1/2 level for language learning so you will be able to hold a conversation with native speakers.
Who is it for?
Completed part 2? Studied Arabic elsewhere for at least 100 hours? You may have a rusty Arabic GSCE or be able to communicate at CEFR A1 level. See the eligibility section for more.
