Arabic

Arabic Mx 2
  • Level(s) of study: Short course
  • Study mode(s): Short course
  • Starting: Week beginning 12 October 2020
  • Course duration: 23 weeks (term-time only)

During the first term, all Arabic teaching will take place online.

Study is divided into one hour of group teaching each week (in which the language tutor will deliver the class using Microsoft Teams live streaming) and one independent hour which will contain content provided by the tutor to compliment the group session.

Your weekly engagement with the material in your own time is mandatory and essential for your progress in the group sessions with your tutor.

In addition, you will need to complete, on average, two to four hours per week of directed and independent learning (further details will be provided at a later stage).

Your syllabus is carefully designed so group, independent and directed learning activities complement each other, and your weekly full engagement with all three learning opportunities is critical to your success.
