Arabic Course

Course Information

Academic Arabic courses tailored and improved specially for aspiring Arabic speakers.

Introduction

The demand for learning the Arabic language within Western societies has blossomed more than ever before, and has exceeded provision. We think that this is due to various factors. Arabic is one of the most eloquent and widely spoken languages in the world. This has been forgotten for some time - used by more than 350 million people worldwide, spread across 28 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and beyond.

Arabic is one of the six official languages adopted by the United Nations since 1973. Indeed, with this quantum and qualitative shift, comes the need to reintroduce the means adopted in the teaching of this genius and arithmetic language.

The significance of developing personally tailored programs means we can respond to the demands of learners first, which includes a high degree of diversity, as well as keeping pace with ever growing changes in the world.

This inspired us to endorse an integrated educational program aimed at improving the methods used in teaching Arabic to speakers of other languages.

Our mission is to teach Arabic to non-native speakers:

We have developed an integrated educational program, specialised in teaching Arabic to non-native speakers. We have chosen the contents of this program, in its various parts, with the latest educational approaches in the teaching of foreign languages, in particular relying on what has been achieved under the European Convention on Foreign Language Education, known as the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL)

Our detailed Arabic language program covers four extensive levels from Level 1 to Level 4, as well as Pre Level 1 classes for beginners who wish to master the Arabic alphabet.
