Key Stage 3 Arabic

Key Stage 3 Arabic

Modern Standard Arabic (MSA).

This basic Arabic course is suitable for absolute novices and those with very basic Arabic know-how.

KS3  is the 3 Years of schooling In The UK That Covers Ages 11-14 (Year 7, 8 & 9).

This course is suitable for anyone new to the Arabic language, as it is taught from scratch. It covers material that is taught at Key Stage 1 and 2 and adds more material. It is also used for adults over the age of 18 and children who have not yet reached the age of 11. It is a general Arabic basics course to getting started. 

We use the last year of KS3 Arabic as the pre-GCSE Arabic level for students who want to sit the GCSE Arabic exam. Most people will not want to do 3 years of key stage 3 Arabic online and then a further 2 for GCSE. Often they will do on average of 1-2 years, and some in less time.

Reading material may vary depending on the books you already have, or prefer to use, or our suggested reading material.

Although it is a basic level some students may need more time to get to grips with this level than others, especially if they have not had any Quranic Arabic lessons previously, or if they have letter pronunciation impediments, or if they are not in the habit of doing regular homework, or if they have a busy job.
