The Arabic Language "Allughah 'al arabiyyah

Arabic is spoken in over twenty countries from North-West Africa to the Arabian Gulf which makes it one of the most widely used languages in the world. There are three different kinds of Arabic that are written and spoken.

  • Classical Arabic - this is the language of the Qur'aan and classical literature. Its structure is similar to the modern standard but the style and much of the vocabulary is archaic. To learn the modern classical Arabic it is essential to go into rather complex grammar.
  • Modern Classical Arabic - this is the universal language of the Arab world understood by all Arabic speakers. Almost all written material is in modern standard as are formal TV programs, talks, etc.
  • Colloquial Arabic – these are the spoken languages of the different regions of the Arab world. They vary the most in everyday words and expressions.

The Arabic covered in this course is a mixture of the modern classical and the colloquial Arabic to lessen the complexity of the grammar. Students completing these courses will be able to understand and be understood by all Arabic speakers.

Arabic Beginners Stage 1 is a general introduction to the language, its sound and writing system and some general information on the countries in which it is spoken.

Languages, Chinese; Mandarin; language; TAFE04, WW000000, A000000, A000002

Learn Chinese Mandarin

Our world is getting smaller due to the rapid development of telecommunication, the expansion of international trade and the ease of air travel. In this environment, Chinese can be counted as one of the most important languages to learn. Modern Standard Chinese is an official language of the United Nations.

Chinese is spoken by over one billion people in China as well as by millions of other people all over the world. The language is not so difficult to learn, having quite a simple structure, with no plural forms and no past or future tenses. China is the fastest growing economy in the world, with huge investments in the iron ore industry in Western Australia. For some years now, people with skills in Chinese have been in great demand both at home and overseas – especially in the areas of the service industry, in international and company law, economics, engineering and architecture.

Chinese (Mandarin) Beginners Stage 1  is a general introduction to the language, its sound and writing system and some general information on the countries in which it is spoken. Wherever possible, the course is tailored to meet the needs and interests of the group. Therefore, some variations to course may occur.
