Basic Arabic Grammar: Part A
This Arabic Grammar course is the first part of a series of four courses (Parts A - D). By the end of the fourth course students should be able to recognise almost all of the grammatical constructions in any Arabic text, and understand the text with the use of an appropriate dictionary.
This first part focuses mainly on the two types of Arabic sentences, i.e. correctly forming basic nominal and verbal sentences. Students will also learn about adjectives and the rules for noun-adjective agreement, using plurals in Arabic, forming basic questions, and using the perfect and imperfect tenses. particular attention is paid to prepositions and prepositional complements to verbs and adjectives, as this is often an area in which students struggle.
