To speak and write natural English, the use of collocations plays an important part. A collocation refers to two or more words that often go together.
 

For example, we say 'fast food' instead of 'quick food' and 'quick shower' but not 'fast shower'.  Mastering collocations will make your language more natural and more easily understood and thus have alternative and richer ways of expressing yourself.

The programme aims to introduce students to the basic elements of Arab culture and role of Islam in Middle East countries and enable students to grasp the very basics of the Arabic language including greetings and self-introduction, yet excluding the writing system. Besides, some core values and ethical concepts of Islam will be clarified, and students can raise their awareness of cultural differences between America/ western countries and Middle East countries in communication patterns.

Students are provided with brief geographical and historical background information of the Arab world, where the cultural varieties and regional differences are also touched upon. Through discussions and case studies, students will explore Islam, not only as a religion, but also as a way of life with reference to background information given at the beginning of the programme. Common misconception and stereotyping will also be highlighted with different perspectives considered. A site visit to the Kowloon Mosque will be organised to consolidate students’ learning.

On completion of the programme, students should be able to:

  1. elaborate on at least 5 basic elements of Arab culture;
  2. greet and introduce themselves in simple Arabic;
  3. identify some core values as well as ethical concepts of Islam;
  4. analyse the cultural differences between America/ western countries and Middle East countries.
