This module is designed to give students with no previous experience of the language a basic knowledge of Modern Standard Arabic which is the language recognised throughout the Arab world. It will provide students with the skills and principles to enable them to express simple ideas, provide and respond to simple information orally and in writing and interact satisfactorily in a limited number of everyday situations and social encounters. Some aspects of the foreign culture and environment will also be introduced.
This is a near-beginner module in Modern Standard Arabic which will build upon the elements of language and cultural awareness which have been introduced in Level 1 or gained from the student's previous experience of the language. It will provide students with the language skills to enable them to interact satisfactorily in survival situations and social encounters and to be aware of related aspects of the foreign culture and environment.
