GCSE Arabic Past Papers 2015, 2016, 2017. Listening, Reading, Writing.

GCSE Arabic Past Papers 2015, 2016, 2017. Listening, Reading, Writing.

 

These papers will be available when you take a lesson with us. We prepare students for GCSE Arabic with 45 and 60-minute lessons. These GCSE Arabic past papers have been gone over so many times with a lot of our students and we have certain techniques on how to master these papers.

We also can provide an examiner who will attend the school that your child attends to take the exam with them. Examiners can attend schools within London or just outside of the M25.

We have also attended schools to teach Arabic and prepare candidates for the speaking exam or other areas of Arabic language learning. Alternatively, we mark papers and return them to you with a few days. This will also give you a rough idea of how students will do in advance of the actual exam.

April is usually a very busy month and we get emails from a lot of schools for dates in April, so do contact us early to avoid disappointment. We only have so much manpower and a limited time frame.

Some reasons to learn Arabic

Arabic is the fourth/fifth most spoken language in the world. There are many countries that speak Arabic as a first language. One of the first things that a person does when he or she becomes a Muslim is to learn some basic Arabic words and chapters of the Quran. Arabic is also the language of many Christians in the Middle East who are very proud of their language.

Why would anyone learn Arabic?

  1. It is a scientific language.
  2. It is a spiritual language.
  3. It is one of the top languages to learn in political and economic circles.
  4. Its letters are clear, unlike many other languages where various letters can have different sounds and pronunciations.
  5. It is a language whose learners increase every time someone becomes Muslim…and we all know how many people are becoming Muslims, despite the negative media stereotypes and shocking stories.
  6. It is a language not just of Arabs or for Arabs, as the Arabic language has been made international…it is now open for anyone to learn.
  7. There are obviously many jobs a person can get if they can speak Arabic such as within Journalism, travel companies, NGO’s, charitable organisations and aid agencies, translation and interpretation, teaching, spy agencies and secret services, financial institutes working and meeting with those rich Arabs etc etc etc.
  8. For social reasons…maybe you have a Muslim friend or know someone who is Arab or speaks Arabic.
  9. It is a language that has been around for some 2000 years. It has classical, modern and colloquial versions of it.
  10. And last but not least it is the language of one of the most popular and widely read books ever. The language of a book that is controversial but attracts so many people of all backgrounds and cultures. It is the language of the Holy Quran.

 

There are many Arabic words used in other languages like English, you may even speak words of Arabic origin without even realising. GCSE ARABIC GCSE ARABIC  GCSE DKKKKKKKKKKK

Re: Visiting Examiner for GCSE Arabic Speaking Test

Audio Recording Equipment 

The Examiner is familiar with various recording devices and software but may need the support of the school’s technician or a teacher in cases where the device is not familiar to the Examiner. Please note that the Examiner does not provide recording devices, CDs or storage keys.

Mark Record Sheet

A copy of the Mark Record Sheet is usually provided by Edexcel to the School and can be found within the Administrative Support Guide, via Edexcels website. The Examiner will usually have a spare copy of the Mark Record Sheet.

The Speaking Test

The GCSE Arabic Speaking Test is a one-to-one interaction between the Examiner and the Candidate. The overall time, per candidate, should not last more than 20-30 minutes. This time includes any preparation and settling in by the candidate, the test itself and making sure the test has been recorded.

Delays

Occasionally there maybe some delays due to Candidate going missing, issues with the recording device etc. In such instances an allowance of 15 minutes will be made to the original 30 minute maximum time, totalling 45 minutes altogether.

Invoice & Fees

  • A fee is chargeable for any delays beyond the 45 minute maximum period.
  • To minimise any delays, regarding payment, please provide an email for the Finance Officer. Alternatively a copy of the invoice will normally be emailed to the school.
  • The base fee includes travel expenses but for longer distances and parking charges these will often be listed separately. The base fee is stated in the initial correspondence. We hope that the above information helps to clarify our position and any matters which may have been unclear. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any further clarification. Thank you for your co-operation in advance. Kind Regards

KS3 – GCSE Arabic Tuition and Lessons.

Study GCSE Arabic or Pre-GCSE Arabic.

The GCSE Arabic course is ideally suited to students with 100-150 hours of previous Arabic study. If you have previous GCSE Arabicknowledge of Arabic, whether Quranic or general contact with the language, you may be prepared enough to continue Arabic at GCSE level. This level may not suit some beginners. This course when studied in UK schools would usually take 2 years, studying approximately two to three hours a week. Unlike European languages, Arabic uses letters and sounds not found in these languages, as well as a writing system that operates right to left.

If you are not ready for GCSE start with the pre-GCSE level of study.

Study online or start an Arabic club at home.

Unit Codes:

Unit 1. (5AR01) Listening and Understanding in Arabic.
Unit 2. (5AR02) Speaking in Arabic, (This is usually the first paper to be taken).
Unit 3. (5AR03) Reading and Understanding in Arabic.
Unit 4. (5AR04) Writing in Arabic. (Usually the last paper).

The Two Themes:
1) Media, travel and culture.
2) Sport, leisure and work.

Tips for learning Arabic

  • Vocab lists are ok but slow, learning phrases and sentences is much better.
  • Listen to audios of Arabic speakers in the target area that you wish to learn. So if you want to learn Modern Arabic listen to the news or documentaries. If you want to learn Classical Arabic listen to the Quran and Tafseer talks. 
  • Every now and again practice your spoken Arabic with the little you know, until you get regular conversation and used to talking.
  • Use all the language skills not just reading.
  • You do not have to study complex concepts all the time mix it up sometimes by being exposed to a variety of simpler material, in Fusha Arabic.
  • Learning a little daily is better than cramming at the last minute.
  • Revise, review, repeat. Whenever possible try to go back over the material you might have already covered no matter how long ago or however recent.
  • If you’re having group lessons the smaller the group the better the results. Likewise the larger the group the more distraction or potential for time to be wasted. Try to learn with people who are motivated and consistent.
  • Self-study may not work for most people but if you have a 1 to 1 with a tutor this may assist you better than going it alone or being amongst groups.
  • There is no big secret to learning it is all about being consistent. If you accept that there will be challenges and that some concepts may take time to understand you are more likely to last longer on your learning path. If you have good reasons for learning Arabic you will have more enjoyable moments.
