Every participant is an individual and everyone learns at a different speed. Our teachers are in constant communication with each other and with our Director of Studies to make sure that your course is at exactly the right level at every stage.

 

Arabic Language and Media

Arabic Language and Media recognises and reflects the interconnectedness of the two subject areas. The course strives to highlight the relationship between language and media by critically discussing the social, historical, political and theoretical debates that underpin the two areas of study.

The Arabic Language strand provides participants with a strong understanding of the fundamentals of the Arabic Language and the necessary skills to carry out independent research. In the first two phases, we introduce the participant to the Meta language used to describe language features, the historical development of the Arabic Language, and provide him with an essential understanding the interconnectedness between language, society and power. The Media strand gives the participant an in-depth understanding of the theories and approaches to the study of the Media alongside practical experience of media production in film and television. In the final phase, the participant have the opportunity to pursue his individual research and practice interest combining both Arabic Language and Media or one of the areas.
