Students can choose to take Arabic for one teaching block or continue for the whole year.
Unlike previous years, and due to the current situation, all KLS classes for the first teaching block (September to December) will be delivered online – real time interactive virtual classes.
In the second teaching block (January to March) we expect our Arabic courses to be taught face-to-face in their entirety. Students will attend classes at Penrhyn Road campus, Kingston University. However, the mode of delivery might be subject to change depending on circumstances.
At the end of the teaching block there will be two assessments: Reading & Writing and an Oral Assessment.
Please note: KLS assessments cannot be re-scheduled.
Please also note: a minimum of 10 students is required in order for a course to run. Should any course not recruit enough students, it will be cancelled.
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.
