‘Try Arabic’ is a short online taster course of Modern Standard Arabic. It has been specifically designed for schools throughout the United Kingdom as part of the British Council’s Arabic Language and Culture Programme.
This app supports and complements the online Arabic course and should be used in conjunction with the online course.
The online course is available at: arabiconline.eu/schools
The aim of ‘Try Arabic’ is to offer secondary school pupils a barrier-free opportunity to explore Arabic and arouse the initial interest of pupils in a language that is frequently considered to be ‘too difficult to learn’.
‘Try Arabic’ is ideal for secondary pupils of any age, but will be particularly beneficial at key stage 3 as it leads learners progressively towards an active use of the Arabic language and understanding of Arab culture.
‘Try Arabic’ guides learners to Level A1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages - an internationally recognised standard.
