Arabic involves learning to read, write, speak, and understand the Arabic language. It includes studying grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation, and learning about Arabic culture and history. This helps students communicate in Arabic and understand the traditions of Arabic-speaking countries.

Studying Arabic in SSS3 with the Lagos State Unified Scheme of Work gives students a well-organized way to learn the language and its culture. The curriculum focuses on improving their reading, writing, speaking, and understanding of Arabic. It meets national education standards, preparing students for further studies and helping them communicate effectively with Arabic speakers, promoting cultural awareness and understanding.

Assessment methods for Arabic in SSS3 typically include written exams or WASSCE, oral exams, listening comprehension tests, and reading comprehension exercises. Students might also be evaluated through essays, projects, and class participation to gauge their understanding of grammar, vocabulary, speaking, and cultural knowledge. These methods help measure both language skills and cultural awareness.
