Students will be introduced to more complex elements and functions of the language which will enable them to read and engage with authentic texts of moderate complexity ranging from advertisements and letters through newspaper and magazine articles to poems and religious texts, which will allow them not only to internalise vocabulary and structures but also to gain a better understanding of the historical, intellectual and spiritual currents informing present-day Arab society and culture. The various audio-visual activities, accessed through the course DVD’s, the online program and the Internet, will further develop students’ listening comprehension and help maintain and augment existing knowledge of vocabulary and structures. Knowledge gained through developing reading and listening skills will be conducive to activating vocabulary and structures, and students will be able to see their progress through the varied writing and speaking activities offering plenty of opportunities for communication.
Continuous homework assessment (8 pieces of written assignments) (throughout the semester) 15%, reflective journal entries (8 pieces of 80~100 words each) (throughout the semester) 5%, continuous oral assessment (throughout the semester) 20%, a 1-hour mid-semester written test (during the middle of semester) 15%, 10-minute oral examination (during the examination period) 15% and a 2-hour written examination (during the examination period) 30%.
