Arabic level 7
In the Arabic level 7 course you will take your language skills to a high degree of proficiency. After this course you will, among other things, be able to:
- read an article in an Arabic newspaper and listen to the news on the radio
- write a text about the history of the place where you live
- recognise 450 new Arabic words
Who is it for?
Arabic level 7 is the right course for you if you can already speak Arabic reasonably well. For example, you can already read dialogues and short texts with the aid of a vocabulary list. You are also familiar with various grammatical concepts, such as the singular, dual and plural forms of nouns and adjectives, and the present and past tense, and masdar (gerund).
What will you learn?
Even more so than in the other Arabic courses, this course focuses on putting your knowledge of Arabic into practice. This means more reading, writing, speaking and listening during the lessons. The course textbook will help you with this, as it is all written in Arabic.
During this course you will improve your Modern Standard Arabic using the topics inventions, sports, natural disasters and emergencies. You will read short biographies about well-known athletes and news articles about natural disasters. You will practice writing stories, on topics such as the history of the place where you live and a rescue operation.
During the course, you will not only improve your Arabic language skills, but also learn more about Arabic culture. You will improve your speaking and listening skills by listening to a news item from Pakistan about an earthquake, and a story about the history of the Olympic Games. You will also talk with your fellow students about traditions, inventions and international events.
The words you will learn during this course are of a high level and may go beyond what you use in your everyday life, yet it is important that you know them in order to read a newspaper article or listen to the news.
The grammar you learn during this course includes:
- ‘Kaana and her sisters’ (to be, become, is not, etc.), for example in أصبح طارق مديرَا (“Tariq became director.”)
- the passive voice, as in بُنِيتْ هذا العمارة في عام ١٩٩٣ (“This building was built in 1993.”)
- active and passive participles (اسم الفاعل واسم المفعول)
