One week summer course on the methodologies of teaching Arabic as a foreign language at the Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo.
This 5 ECTS course on Methodologies of Teaching Arabic to non-native speakers is a blended course that combines the practical aspects of teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language (TAFL) with its underlying linguistic theories.
The course will start with a theoretical background on methods of teaching foreign languages and their underlying linguistic theories before moving to the practical aspects of teaching the four language skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking). In addition, it will focus on a number of important questions confronting the teacher of Arabic as a foreign language:
•How to teach vocabulary and grammar?
•How to design a syllabus?
•How to write a lesson plan?
