New Arabic GCSE versus Old GCSE Arabic

New Arabic GCSE vs the Old Arabic GCSE.

new arabic gcse

The old 2012 specification has been merged with the new specification. The new 2017 specification gives clarity to the themes and separates them up over five themes rather than being grouped into just two themes.

A new addition to GCSE Arabic is the global dimension, which talks about the environment and world peace. This topic is also part of the general topics required at A’ level.

Pearson or Pearson-Edexcel (previously Edexcel) is still the only exam board offering Arabic at GCSE or A’ level.

The new Arabic GCSE now has short translations to and from Arabic.

The papers are now split into foundation tier and higher tier. A 5 is the highest that can be achieved at the foundation tier. The foundation tier is shorter in time.

In the old specification you could use a dictionary for the writing paper but not in the new specification.

Key features and skills in the new specification include:

  • use of authentic literary texts.
  • spontaneous speaking.
  • cultural knowledge.
  • translation.

Language Arabic

 

Develop a language learning routine. Starting with as little as one word a day you can get into the habit of learning a language, without it seeming like a chore. We are so comfortable in the knowledge that we speak at least one language already.

This is one of the reasons that trying to learn a language can be mentally challenging. The mind is telling us we can already get by with one language why would you want another or is it really worth it. So the key thing here is to try and do what you do in your mother tongue but with the language you are trying to acquire. Starting with basic words on a daily basis you can keep going until it becomes no effort.

Cooking in Arabic, reading a magazine in Arabic, listening to the news in Arabic and anything else that you can substitute. This does not need to all be in one go, obviously, you still need to communicate in our mother tongue. Wouldnt be a real challenge to go a whole day without speaking your mother tongue, immersion at home without going abroad. So to get that language Arabic up all you really need to do is break through the mental block that makes you want to stop. Get used to going a part of your day in language Arabic.

Are You Ready For GCSE Arabic?

Are You Ready For GCSE Arabic?

are you ready for arabic

Many of you may know that GCSE Arabic has changed. For new parents and students who intend on taking a GCSE in Arabic it is important that you speak to someone before entering your child to take the exam at their school or centre.

Too many a time have we come across students that come to us already registered for an exam that they have not taken a proper course or enough lessons in yet. Parents need to make sure that their child, for whom they wish to succeed in the exam, speaks to someone in the first instance. It is not enough that a teacher at school says to an Arab student ‘we are entering you for a GCSE because you speak Arabic’…what does someone who knows nothing about Arabic know about the different types of Arabic? What about the fact that a lot of Arab students may be able to speak colloquial Arabic at home but may not be able to speak, read or write the modern standard form of the language.

Even worse than this is that there are some who consider Quranic Arabic the same as GCSE or KS3 Arabic. Quranic Arabic is a beautiful language, in fact, the best form of Arabic that exists. And there are similarities in the use of the same letters and a few similar words and grammar but that’s it. Modern Standard Arabic does not require Tajweed, vowels, classical words etc.

Then there are cases where some parents may need to work abroad in an Arabic speaking country and their children go with them. A few things to note with situations like these is that just being in an Arabic speaking country, or any country where you do not know the language, will not automatically make you speak a language. There are known cases of people who went abroad to study or just to travel for work but end up using their own mother tongue the majority of the time, for one reason or another. Four years in an Arab country does not mean much by itself. There are others who can study with a tutor, one-to-one, for a few months or go abroad for a few months and be much more productive.

Parents, please listen to the suggestions of those in the know (the Arabic know).

GCSE Arabic Daily

  1. GCSE Arabic Daily recommends that once you know you are doing the exam and have been registered for the exam at your school or centre then you should find out when the exam dates are for each unit. Prepare for each unit according to which comes first. So this would be 1-speaking, 2-listening, 3-reading and 4-writing. Course Code 1AA0 Foundation(/f) or Higher (/h).
  2. The new gcse speaking unit was first introduced for the 2019 exam series. It consists of two tiers, foundation tier (2f) and higher tier (2h).  Each tier comes with its own sequencing grid. The sequencing grid is important as it shows you the order of the themes, the cards that you should be suing and the order for multiple candidates. The GCSE speaking unit is the first unit to be attempted and you should be well prepared. gcse arabic daily
  3. Do make sure to sign and date all forms that are relevant to the teacher/examiner as well as the student/candidate. Read the administrative support guide for further details. The two main forms are forms CN2 and CS2 but you will also need to look at the checklist for the speaking assessment on how to conduct the exam.
  4. Make sure that when you are speaking during the exam that you can see a clock to gauge how long you are speaking for. Each of the three tasks has separate, minimum timings that should not be less than or more than those times.
  5. Talk to your language department ar school, your exam centre, your Arabic tutors and your parents to coordinate dates and make sure that each step of the process has been covered and that you are ready.
  6. You can get further GCSE Arabic tips from our online GCSE Arabic tutor/examiner but do contact us first to arrange a lesson. We run right through the summer holidays and have reduced rates during the summer for new clients.
  7. There are many tutors on various tutor websites offering Arabic lessons and these lessons can help you boost your Arabic but do not think that all Arabic teachers can guide you through the new GCSE Arabic exam. We have first-hand experience of the old GCSE Arabic specification as well as the new one.
  8. Many are still confused as to whether they can get a GCSE in Arabic now that things have changed and are wondering what their chances are. We recommend an online assessment before any lessons and before committing yourself to something that someone else wants you to do.
  9. We say this all the time but if all the Arabic that you know is the Quran and some alphabets then this by itself is not sufficient preparation.
  10. Not everyone is good with Arabic pronunciation so the more you practise the basics, the alphabets, the better for you in the long run. If your accent is too stiff or your tongue is inflexible then you might need to stay with the basics a little bit longer.
