      French with Arabic (25% Arabic) will enable you to develop knowledge and understanding of the language, literature, culture, society and politics of France and the Francophone world, in both a historical and a contemporary perspective, to promote a lasting interest in, and enjoyment of, French cultural variety. At the same time, you'll also be able to learn a new language, Arabic.

      Arabic can only be taken at beginner level or post-GCSE level maximum. You will develop your linguistic skills by taking a language module in in each year you are at Warwick. By the end of the course you will be expected to reach B2 standard (CEFR) in Arabic (this approximates to A Level).

      You’ll spend your second or third year abroad, consolidating and enhancing your learning in a Francophone environment, either as a language assistant or working or studying at one of our partner institutions.
