Arabic is spoken by hundreds of millions of people across the world. It is also the language of the Quran, so many Muslims who are not Arabic speakers learn Arabic in order to understand the Quran. Learning Arabic is necessary for you to understand the culture, civilisation and history of the Arab World. It opens the doors for you to appreciate and enjoy the great wealth of literary works written in Arabic.  

This is a core module for MArabic and Combined Honours students. This module introduces you to the basics of Modern Written Arabic morphology and syntax as well as the four skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening in Modern Standard Arabic and prepares you for more advanced Arabic language studies. No prior knowledge of Arabic is required for this module.
