The Foundation Level is an introductory course taught over 20 weeks with a total of 40 hours of teaching time.  It will have you speaking with confidence in the least amount of time. Classes will be interactive, and you will be fully involved: reading out aloud, repeating phrases from memory, filling in gaps, writing your own pieces of work and above all speaking through presentations, conversations and role plays. Your active participation will ensure that you leave every class with new acquired language.

Taught by an experienced, native speaker, this is an excellent opportunity to develop your language skills in a short period of time. Our syllabus is designed to fully engage every learner and maintain high motivational levels so that learning Arabic is a pleasure rather than an effort. The structured approached and variety of lesson material will deliver the very best communicative Arabic course to meet every learning style.

The course will teach proficiency in formal Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). This Arabic Beginner’s course will enable you to communicate confidently on a basic level in everyday situations, socialise and not feel out of place when visiting Arabic-speaking countries.

From day one you will communicate – listen, read, speak and write – in Arabic. Vocabulary will be learned by using it and not just through rote memorisation. The emphasis is on developing your communicative skills and only focusing on Applied Grammar. Our course moto is: ‘Receive in Arabic Produce in Arabic.’ There is no figuring it out for yourself, just imitate and repeat until you possess the skill.

The course is based on our choice core textbook: Al-Arabiyya Bayna Yadayk


Students will be assessed through a combination of written and oral examinations.
