Standardarabisk for let øvede (A2) - online
Read your first Arabic article and learn to bargain in the shops
On this course, you will learn how to talk to people on the street and in the shops. You will practise everyday vocabulary, common expressions and how to speak politely. Furthermore, you will learn how to talk more about yourself and ask about other people?s personal lives and experiences.
Among other things we will talk about:
- How to interact in a shop and bargain about the price
- How to give opinions in a polite way
- Shopping for food and clothes
- Different holiday celebrations such as Christmas and Ramadan
- Your travel preference and the places you have visited
You will also read your first Arabic news article. We start off by learning the most frequently used vocabulary in Arabic media and practise reading the news. You will learn how to look up words in a traditional Arabic dictionary (by root) and to work independently on understanding a text. You will thereby practise the use of word patterns and the root system.
Occasionally, we will read a small paragraph with full case endings and use them as a starting point to talk about cases and repeat the basic rules whilst also learning some of the rarer ones.
You will also be encouraged to hand in short written assignments or prepare an oral presentation e.g. about a city you visited or a subject you know well.
How do the online lessons take place?
You take part in the class via the video conferencing programme, Zoom. Your teacher will upload a secure link to the class meeting room on our digital platform, Moodle. You and your fellow students will meet online once a week. You will work with authentic texts, video and audio clips as well as interactive group tasks. Online classes are similar to face-to-face classes in that you can work in groups, take part in classroom discussions, raise your hand and share your work with everyone. You can participate from your computer or tablet. You do not have to be a technical expert to participate, but your computer or tablet must have a good webcam and microphone so that we can all see and hear each other.
