The course will be held via ZOOM, four times a week, Monday- Thursday. Each meeting will last between 2-4 hours and will begin at 18:00 (6:00pm) Haifa time.
The Beginners 1 course is designed for students with no prior knowledge of Spoken Arabic or the written language (MSA). The Beginners 2 course will be a continuation of Beginners 1 and is also designed for students who have a previous background in Levantine spoken Arabic. An emphasis will be put on the Levantine Dialects. The language of instruction will be a combination of Arabic and English in order to explain the foundations of Spoken Arabic.
Students are introduced to the Spoken Arabic first of all through the rich world of greetings and then by exposing them to a few chosen topics that are necessary to facilitate their way in everyday conversations. Teaching these topics will be based on explanations of basic grammar as well. This program also exposes the students to the fascinating Arab culture, Arabic songs, and conversations.
Students will also use the Moodle system for assignments’ submission (details will be sent by the International School after registration).
The course is open to all applicants above the age of 18.
* The course will open with a minimum of 20 participants
