Based on the principle of total immersion, these six-week courses combine intensive classes in both Colloquial Arabic and Modern Standard Arabic – the language employed in print, news broadcasts, and formal speeches across the Arab world.
Through a diverse range of classes, coffee hours with native Arabic speakers, cultural events, and tours to religious and cultural sites throughout Jerusalem and Israel, you’ll learn to read, write, and speak Arabic. All teaching faculty are native Arabic speakers.
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?
We offer courses and programs in a variety of fields, with a focus on social and political sciences, Israel and the Middle East, languages, religion, fine and performing arts, business and legal studies, and STEM.
