This short course is aimed at the learner who has a very limited knowledge of the language. Its aim is to equip delegates with a basic foundation in conversational Arabic and to understand commonly used phrases.  Using a variety of teaching methods, the facilitator will introduce delegates to new vocabulary and commonly used expressions as well as share everyday customs, courtesies and traditions linked to the Arabic language.

·                greet and use the appropriate courtesies

·                know numbers, days, months or seasons

·                conduct a simple dialogue

·                ask for and give directions

Delegates will be assessed by means of four written (transliterated or Arabic scripted) assignments, one listening comprehension test and a short prepared speech at the end of the course.
