Arabic level 4

The group course Arabic level 4 focuses on practical communication, vocabulary-building, and differences between formal and informal Standard Arabic. Among other grammatical concepts, students master the use of different types of verbs in the present tense.


Topics include talking about yourself and others, the house and home, work and routine, and sport and leisure. Grammatical concepts include plural nouns and adjectives, verbal nouns, and participles.


This course is right for you if you are comfortable reading dialogues and short texts in Arabic with the help of a word list. You also need to be familiar with singular and plural pronouns and conjugation of verbs in both the present and past tenses.
