Arabic

About

Arabic is the official language of the 22 countries which form the Arab League. It is the native language of over 200 million people residing in this geographical region, which stretches from Southwest Asia to Northwest Africa and known as the Arab World. Arabic is also known as a religious language. It is ranked among the top six of the world's major languages.

At King’s we teach Modern Standard Arabic which is used in books, newspapers, television and radio, and in conversation between educated Arabs from different countries.

Our teachers of Arabic are highly qualified and experienced native speakers from different parts of the Arab world. They use their extensive knowledge of Arabic language, literature and culture to inspire and encourage students to progress in their learning and develop a high level of competence in the language.

We also teach Arabic Levantine, which is a common dialect understood among many Arabic countries.

Student Testimonial

" I completed Level 4 Arabic this year. The course was varied, covering a range of topics, some grammar and initially using a text book. It was adapted to suit the class's ability which was helpful.

The teacher, Sawsan Askoul, is great. This is the second year that we have had her which has really helped in terms of continuity of learning and structure of the classes. She is very encouraging and kept the classes interesting and relevant, tackling weak points and ensuring we made steady progress. She also adapted the classes well for online.

Sawsan provided useful additional material on grammar etc, and once the classes had to go online she developed useful PowerPoint presentations that she then shared with us, which was great for revising" Dr. Caroline Sandes, UCL.
