Based on the principle of total immersion, this course combines intensive classes in both colloquial Arabic and Modern Standard Arabic—the formal language employed in print, news broadcasts and formal speeches across the Arab world.
Through classes, coffee hours with Arabic speakers, cultural events, and tours to religious and cultural sites throughout Jerusalem and Israel, students will learn the read, write and speak Arabic. What better way to learn Arabic than to speak with the locals, read signs and posters throughout the city, learn the names of the vegetables and spices found in the suk, and listen to the calls to prayer of the muezzin?
The elementary level program is based on the Al-kitaab textbook series.
