DESCRIPTION Dan il-unit huwa maħsub għal min għadu se jibda jitgħallem l-ilsien Malti. Min jidħol għalih jitgħallem ilissen, jaqra, jifhem u jikteb il-kliem ewlieni, sentenzi qosra u l-aktar espressjonijiet komuni bil-Malti, kif nużawhom fil-ħajja ta’ kuljum; ngħidu aħna, kif nintroduċu ruħna, insellmu lil xulxin, nitkellmu dwarna nfusna, dwar qrabatna u ħbiebna, u fejn noqogħdu. It-tagħlim isir fl-isfond soċjokulturali tal-ħajja Maltija, hekk li l-unit jiswa bħala daħla kemm għall-ilsien Malti kif ukoll għall-komunità li titkellmu.

This study-unit is intended for complete beginners in Maltese. Participants will learn how to pronounce, read, understand and write basic words, short sentences and the most common expressions used in everyday language, such as introducing oneself, one’s family and friends and one’s neighbourhood. Teaching is set against the Maltese socio cultural background, so that the study-unit will serve as an introduction to both the Maltese language and the community that speaks it.
