  • Use basic greetings and courtesies e.g. Good morning, Excuse me, Yes/No, Thanks
  • Use basic vocabulary e.g. family member, jobs
  • Ask and reply to very simple questions about yourself e.g. Where do you come from?, Do you speak ...?

    In class, students are encouraged to interact with each other using Arabic, practising the vocabulary and structures learnt in pairs or in small groups. Outside of the class, students are encouraged to revise what has been taught, so that progress may be made. The written activities will be mostly set as homework.
