Description This unit further develops students' language skills acquired in Arabic 201 to equip students with more sophisticated language skills and knowledge. It aims to extend learners' skills within a range of topics and to cover basic structural aspects of the language, at a post-beginner level. A range of DELL (Digitally Enhanced Language Learning) activities are utilised as part of the blended learning mode of delivery for this unit. NOTE: Students enrolling in this unit as part of a major or sub major in Arabic must enrol in Arabic 201 at the same time. Students with a background of study in the language may need to take higher level units. During the first two weeks of class, the lecturer will monitor the performance of students and advise students who need to transfer to a higher class. Students should consult the Languages Academic Course Advisor or Unit Coordinator if they are unsure of their appropriate level.
