Arabic Studies Program
Adults Arabic Language Program
The Arabic language is the 5th most spoken language of the world and is at the very core of one of the fastest growing religions of the world. But how does one learn this language that is over 1400 years old? Where does one go? Where does one start?
From extensive experience in teaching Arabic for almost 20 years, we have developed a unique curriculum to answer this very problem. We have developed a program that caters for all levels from absolute beginners to a proficient user of the language, or A-Level Arabic. We incorporate reading practice, listening exercises, writing tasks and speaking application. Our approach is to immerse the student in the language so that they can learn from context more than from tables, charts and drills. Our interactive classes are second to none, and the student will have the ability to engage in basic conversation after only the first year of study.
Arabic ProgramThis is our 3 stage Process to Arabic proficiency. Our system has been developed from a combination of extensive work with the Language institute of the Islamic University of Madeenah, with the Arabic qualifications governing body, OFQUAL where we were privileged to work with them on the KS4 and KS5 Arabic program, and forming our experiences and study plan to be in line with the Common European Framework for learning language. We were privileged to work with them on the KS3 and KS4 program and we're excited to deliver this unique program to you.
