The TAFL course explores the teacher qualities, skills and knowledge required for teaching Arabic at schools, universities, higher and further education institutes, and language centers. It combines a focus on practical classroom techniques and strategies with a strong theoretical underpinning. Input seminars and workshops focus on key areas such as expanding teachers’ language awareness, how to teach Arabic grammar, correction techniques, how to develop learners’ speaking skills, and drama. The teaching practice component enables you to put these ideas into practice with real learners of Arabic, whilst your personalised teaching portfolio develops your ability to self-reflect and critique your own practices.
