Self Assessment

Arabic Alphabet Self Assessment for the Intensive Summer Programme

If you are not joining our four week Intensive Summer Programme that runs every July you do not need to take the following test.

Students joining our Summer Intensive Programme each July are expected to know the Arabic alphabet before they arrive. That is, they are expected to be able to read, write, pronounce (to a reasonable degree) and recognize the script. To help students see if they are sufficiently competent in the script to benefit from the course we have devised a self-assessment. Your reading, writing and recognition will be assessed, unfortunately we cannot assess your pronunciation.

Download the self assessment and follow the instructions in the self-assessment and answer all the questions. The final question will require you to listen to each of the dictation words below, in turn. You may find it helpful to use headphones to listen to the words or make sure the room is quiet. Finally, when you have completed the test, download the Answer Key and score yourself.
