Program Description

The programme is based on the communicative approach to teaching Arabic and develops the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students will also learn to activate grammatical patterns and acquire a wide range of vocabulary, which they can use to express their meanings accurately and appropriately. The programme is continually adapted to students' learning needs and so the pattern of learning activities differs from session to session.

The Diploma in Communicative Arabic at SOAS Language Centre in London is designed to prepare pupils without any previous knowledge of Arabic to work and also live in an Arabic-speaking environment. In addition to learning modern standard Arabic, both written and spoken, pupils will be introduced to Arabic dialects.
