Our program emphasizes all four language skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing). As a beginner, you’ll start by learning to write the letters and distinguish the sounds of the Arabic alphabet. Many sessions zoom in on practical vocabulary and commonly discussed topics.
As you advance, you’ll learn the grammar and vocabulary you need to maintain an interesting college-level conversation in Arabic. Our upper-level language courses use a huge array of authentic sources from the Arab world (Arabic online media, novels and poems, films, blogs, etc.).
We offer advanced Arabic in topic-based courses such as Translation, Media Arabic, Arab Cultures, and Arabic Literature. We also teach Levantine Colloquial Arabic and offer a special introductory track for “heritage” learners from Arab backgrounds.
