This is a continuation of the first semester advanced language subject for honours students in Arabic. The level of study, content, and assessment in the subject will be determined by the Coordinator after placement testing. Based on the outcome of testing, students will either be placed in an appropriate stream of advanced language study or a customized course of study will be available, focusing on translation and other research skills in Arabic.
|Assessment:||Assessment will vary based on the outcome of testing. In the case of graduates of the BA who started as beginners, assessment will normally follow the form of: Regular homework 10%, continuous oral assessment 10%, a 10-minute aural/oral test 10% (mid-semester), a final oral examination 20% (at the end of semester) and a final 2-hour written examination 50% (during the examination period). In the case of very advanced students: written essays totaling 5000 words (due at the end of the semester).|
