Arabic level 2

The group course Arabic level 2 improves your general Arabic language skills. This course is very hands-on: While other Arabic courses emphasize grammatical details that most native Arab speakers do not actually use in everyday communication, this course focuses on everyday language and practical communication skills. 


Arabic level 2 is the right course for you if you already know the entire Arabic alphabet and are able to read whole words and some simple sentences in Arabic. In addition, you should know how to use the singular forms of the verb in the present tense (e.g. he writes) and how to make possessive phrases (my pen). 


At the end of Arabic level 2, you are comfortable reading dialogues and short texts with the help of a word list. Topics include countries and people, counting, colours, eating and drinking, and travel. You will know how to use numbers, pronouns and present and future tenses in all persons including dual and plural.


Course information

Like all Arabic courses at UvA Talen, the Arabic variety taught in this course is Standard Arabic, the language understood in all Arab countries and used in the media.


The material used for this course is Mastering Arabic 1, a textbook that builds communication skills through lively speaking, listening, and reading activities. The textbook includes two audio CDs and supporting online materials. Arabic level 2 covers roughly the middle third of Mastering Arabic 1. Supplemental materials that have been selected or developed specially by UvA Talen instructors may also be used.


The end level of this course equals A1.2 of the European Framework of Reference. Arabic level 2 concludes with a final test. Once you have successfully completed this test you will receive a certificate, and you can proceed to Arabic level 3.


Assessment Arabic level 2

After you've registered for Arabic level 2, the instructor will contact you by email and ask you to complete a short questionnaire to determine whether your knowledge of the Arabic language is sufficient for this course. If you’ve already passed the course Arabic Beginners then you do not have to take the assessment.


Included in the course price

The price includes an assessment, 10 lessons of 2.5 hours and a certificate. The course material (€ 35), which will be handed out by your instructor during the first lesson, is not included in the course price.
