Arabic (A-Level)

Advanced Level Qualification

Sixth Form Overview

Students aged 17-18 years old

Course Outline

The four themes address a range of content related to society past and present, as well as aspects of the political and artistic culture of the Arabic-speaking world. Themes 1 and 3 focus on aspects of society, while Theme 2 focuses on artistic culture and Theme 4 on political culture. Each theme is broken into two sub-themes and a research subject (highlighted in bold). Each sub-theme and research subject is divided into a series of aspects.

Students are required to select only one research subject for Paper 1, which must be based on one Arabic-speaking country only. An Arabic-speaking country is a country where Arabic is an official language. For their research, students must cover all three aspects of the research subject. Teachers should consider cultural sensitivities when giving guidance to students on selecting an appropriate research subject and must ensure that they select a country on which sufficient material for the research subject is available.

Course Progression

This qualification offers a suitable progression route from GCSE, focusing on the development of three language skills: listening, reading and writing. Grammar and the mastering of linguistic features are key elements of this qualification, as is the inclusion of authentic written and spoken sources, responding through writing to literature and film, and independent research. Students will be able to apply their knowledge, skills and understanding to authentic, real-life contexts. They will develop transferable skills that support the study of other GCE subjects, higher-education study and the transition to employment, together with an understanding and appreciation of Arabic-speaking countries and their cultures.
