Arabic: Beginner Level 3

Events in the Middle East have encouraged new interest in Arabic. Practical expressions and conversational materials are used throughout these courses, providing students with a strong foundation for future study. Beginner Level 3 is for students who have at least 25 hours of classroom time in Arabic within the last year, have a basic command of the language, are familiar with everyday expressions, and can make very simple sentences. Following the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference, students at this level will learn to identify the highest frequency vocabulary related to areas of most immediate personal relevance, read very short, simple texts, communicate in routine tasks requiring a simple exchange of information on familiar topics, and describe their families, educational backgrounds, and jobs.
