This programme enables students to gain more rounded exposure to the language and culture.

The MSA lessons aim to help students acquire the skills to interact with the written form of MSA. The various levels present and revise the grammar and the morphology of MSA. Activities are directed toward developing the skills and strategies necessary for the effective reading, listening and discussing of authentic materials.
