Have you completed the course "t3allam 3arabi for Absolute Beginners" or can you (slowly) read and make basic conversation? iMasterArabic A1.1 is the next step to achieve your first milestone: Arabic A1. Level A1 consists of two parts: iMasterArabic A1.1, and iMasterArabic A1.2. Just like all of our courses, this course follows our unique approach of teaching Arabic the way Arabs use their language: speaking and understanding spoken Colloquial Arabic, reading and understanding Modern Standard Arabic. iMasterArabic A1.1 consists of 12 lessons of 2 hours each, so 24 hours of live le In this course, all learning skills are practiced: you actively practice speaking and understanding Levantine Arabic (Lebanese/Syrian), and passively learn to understand Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) by reading and translating simple texts, as well as learning practical grammar with some writing exercises. Differences in the grammar of Levantine Arabic (for speaking) and MSA are emphasised. Course Objectives: At the end of both parts of the A1 courses (1.1 and 1.2) you will achieve the equivalent of the A1 level of the “Common European Framework of Reference for Languages”. This means that you are able to: 1. Understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type. 2. Easily express yourself with the verbs ‘to have’ and ‘to want’ in different daily situations. 3. Interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly, and is prepared to help. Pre-requisites: 1. You have to know all the letters of the alphabet and be able to read words in Arabic. 2. You have to know how to join the letters to form words. 3. In addition to that, you will be able to work with more ease at this level if you can greet people and reply to basic formalities in Levantine Arabic, introduce yourself and others and offer and ask for a certain drink.
