This real-time online course is designed to cater for complete beginners of Arabic. It offers students a first taste of the language, with a focus on oral communication and basic grammar. The students will practise the language in an interactive way, whilst at the same time learning a little about the culture of the Arabic-speaking world. The course is not exam-based and takes place via Zoom.

Why Arabic?
  • A key to the world of over 20 countries in the Arabian Peninsula, the Middle East, and North Africa
  • An eye-opener with a language system distinct from English and Chinese
  • Expansion of your travel horizons in the Middle East and Africa
  • Better career prospects and business opportunities with increasing China-Arab cooperation such as One Belt One Road and China-Arab States Summit
  • Gaining insight about the beliefs and traditions of Islam, which is the second largest religion in the world and the first largest religion in the Arab countries
