The Arabic subject component at BSK is a compulsory curriculum provided by the Kuwait Ministry of Education, which provides the syllabi and textual resources for all Year 6-11 students of first language Arabic.
The collective rationale behind our Arabic courses lies in the vital importance of equipping students with knowledge and understanding of the Arab world in which they live. The courses contribute significantly to preparing students for effective participation in Arab society.
BSK is an English medium school, so it is vitally important that students also gain an appreciation of the Arabic language through development of reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, thus enabling them to be more confident and accomplished bilinguals.
The Year 6-9 curriculum provides a firm foundation of learning. Poetry, prose and grammar are essential components of the subject, supported through regular comprehension and composition exercises and weekly dictation and handwriting tests. Regular assessment and feedback encourage students to take control of their own progress.
First language Arabic speakers sit examinations at National level. The curriculum encompasses components such as modern and classical literature, complex components of language and grammar, research and debate. These exams provide the prerequisite entrance to Kuwait and other Arab State universities. First language speakers may also enter Pearson Edexcel GCSE Arabic as a First Language.
