Online Arabic from Palestine Course – Launch event
Wed 19 September 2018, 15:30–17:00 Gilbert Scott Conference Suite Room 253
Main Building, University of Glasgow, G12 8QQ
The course will be of interest to anyone wanting to learn, or promote the learning of, Modern Standard Arabic with a Palestinian ‘flavour’ for work, to communicate with Arabic speaking ‘new Scots’, for linguistic solidarity with the people of Palestine, or simply for the pleasure of learning such an important language.
The Online Arabic from Palestine course will be taught by trained and experienced teachers based at the Arabic Centre (Islamic University of Gaza) and will make use of bespoke interactive materials created over the past year by an international team of language experts.
The Online Arabic from Palestine course is the result of an international and multilingual project run over the past 12 months by a team based in the School of Education, University of Glasgow (UK) and the Gaza Strip (Palestine). The international team has worked in close collaboration to design and develop an online Arabic course for beginners, through the combined efforts of academics, teachers, administrators, IT experts, videographers and graphic designers.
This unique course is:
(a) grounded in Palestinian culture, history, language and art;
(b) tailor-made for online delivery from the challenging context of the Gaza Strip; (c) collaborative and
(d) holistic i.e. focusing not just on language for communication but also on the emotional and aesthetic dimensions of language.
