This is a core module for First Year Single Honours Students, but can be taken as an optional module by other students of similar level. Its aim is to enable you to read, understand and translate simple texts from English into Arabic and from Arabic into English. The texts selected for in-class reading aim to introduce students to a wide range of simple or simplified types of text, to cover news stories, biographies, history, culture, basic conversations and fiction. Students are encouraged to draw on their knowledge of Arabic words and understanding of the context to guess meanings of new words and structures.
