The Arabic language courses of the University of Groningen Language Centre are introductions to the most spoken version (Egyptian/standard Arabic). This form is spoken in Egypt, but is also understood in other Arab countries in the Middle East and the Gulf countries.
The main focus of our Arabic courses will be on conversation in everyday situations in relation to cultural customs in the Arab world. In addition, attention will be paid to grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. You will also learn to read and write the Arabic script (level 0 > lower A1), so you are able to recognize familiar written words in the Arab world such as toponyms and street signs. Level Lower A1> A1 and Level A1> A2 are more focused on conversations and everyday situations.
Language of Instruction
The target language is the language of instruction as much as possible. When necessary, the course is taught in Dutch and/or English.
These courses will be taught as an online interactive group course via Blackboard Collaborate; our online classroom for the coming period! One lesson lasts 90 minutes. Per lesson you should count on 2-3 hours of self-study. Read here everything you can expect from an online language course.
Get a taste during the free webinar week
At the end of January, we are organizing live webinars for all language courses, so that you can already get a taste of how an online course works!
