The Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) First Language Arabic syllabus is designed for students whose first language is Arabic. This First Language syllabus develops learners' ability to communicate clearly, accurately and effectively. They learn how to employ a wide-ranging vocabulary, use correct grammar, spelling and punctuation, and develop a personal style and an awareness of the audience being addressed.
Learners are also encouraged to read widely, both for their own enjoyment and in order to develop an appreciation of how writers achieve their effects. The syllabus also complements other areas of study by encouraging skills of more general application
This syllabus is graded from 9 to 1 but is otherwise the same as Cambridge IGCSE First Language Arabic (0508). You will find past papers and other resources for Cambridge IGCSE First Language Arabic (0508); these may be useful for teaching Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) First Language Arabic (7184).
