    Description

    The Introduction to Functional Arabic course is an eight-week journey designed to immerse beginners in the foundational aspects of the Arabic language. In the first week, students will dive into the school environment, learning how to describe their surroundings and understand basic sentence structures. They will explore the use of prepositions, coordinating particles for enumeration, and the nuances of demonstratives with gender agreement. The week also covers contrasting ideas using specific particles, the formation of nominal sentences, negation, and the application of definite and indefinite articles.

    As the course progresses into the second week, the focus shifts to building communication skills. Students will learn how to seek and provide information, form questions using question words, and delve into the Arabic verb system, including negation and conjugation. The week also introduces cardinal numbers from one to ten, expressions of knowledge, and techniques for eliciting information and expressing admiration.

    In the third week, the course emphasises describing personal and family backgrounds, forming dual nouns, and understanding number-noun agreement. Students will practice using the numbers one and two, as well as three through ten, and explore the plurals of non-rational nouns.

    Week four continues to build on descriptive skills, with students learning to talk about their family members and school subjects. They will gain insight into Arabic last names and practice using objects of verbs and prepositions. The week also introduces ordinal numbers, pronouns of separation, and revisits the grammatical cases introduced in previous weeks.

    The fifth week of the course is dedicated to engaging in social interactions. Students will learn terms of address, how to express regret or apology, and articulate a lack of knowledge. They will also explore expressing degrees and delve deeper into the present tense, focusing on negation and conjugation. The week rounds off with an exploration of language prefixes and suffixes and expands the numerical vocabulary to include numbers from eleven to one hundred and sixteen.

    Week six introduces students to Arabic media, including newspapers and magazines. They will learn to use “which” for inquiries, make polite requests and commands, and understand grammatical cases. The week also covers expressing possession, using attached pronouns with verbs, and provides more insight into Arabic names.

    In the seventh week, students will refine their ability to request and decline things politely, describe daily activities, and express likes and dislikes. They will study adverbials of time, the imperative mood, and vocabulary related to food and drink. The week also focuses on prepositions with attached pronouns, plurals of nouns—including sound masculine and feminine plurals, as well as broken plurals—and revisits the idaafa construction for expressing possession.

    The course concludes in the eighth week with advanced time concepts and numeracy. Students will learn to read time, tell time informally, and understand the suppression of the initial sound of the article. They will distinguish between mass and count nouns and expand their numerical vocabulary to include reading and using numbers in the hundreds and thousands.

    By the end of this course, students will have acquired a practical understanding of Arabic that will serve as a strong foundation for further language study or for engaging with Arabic-speaking communities.
