  • Shekienah Mohammed
    Shekienah Mohammed United Kingdom It was a very informative course - however, there was no exercises to do to communicate our understanding of each topic. Having to do all these topics to do one assessment, was way too long. And it is not natural to go from topic to topic in one go, or in one week without doing some exercises and having it corrected - even if it is a quiz after all these topics would be good before the final assessment. Because of the questions asked at the assessment was a bit weird..the way it has been asked. However, this is fun for those who already know how to speak Arabic but wants to gain an understanding of pronouns and nouns. For a native English speaker, it is hard to remember all these Arabic words so quick! 2015-05-26 11:05:09
