Mode of Attendance: Part-time

The use of Iraqi-Gulf Arabic has spread enormously in recent years thanks to the expanding work opportunities and growing tourism in this dynamically developing area. The Gulf Arabic dialect increasingly features in Arabic media and is spread by satellite channels across the world. This course will enable you to communicate with people in the countries of the Gulf region and to enjoy many aspects of the rich Iraqi-Gulf culture; its customs, stories, songs, etc. The course will also give you the basics in Arabic that will help you to communicate with Arab-speaking people outside of the Iraq-Gulf countries and provide a solid foundation for further study of Arabic.
