Course summary

Arabic and French make a natural combination. Interaction between the two languages and cultures has taken place over many centuries and continues in the present day. This interaction is reflected as much in the cinema and music of contemporary Europe and North Africa as in the Chansons de Gestes of medieval times. Arabic is the main language of more than 350 million people inhabiting a huge swathe of land extending from the Atlantic to the Persian Gulf. Knowledge of Arabic provides access to the rich intellectual heritage of Islam and opens the door to a fascinating and varied region. French is a major world language, spoken in many parts of Europe, Africa and the Americas. French art and thought have played a central part in creating our modern civilisation. Alongside intensive study of the language, you will explore French culture - its literature and cinema, but also its political history and philosophical ideas.The School of Literatures, Languages & Cultures at the University of Edinburgh is recognised in the UK and internationally as a leading institution for the research-led study of languages. A year spent studying Arabic and French abroad provides complete immersion in both.
