Al Bayt Al Arabi Language Program is a creative and interactive approach to language learning. The program centers upon two or more weeks holding an intensive Modern Standard Arabic course. The classes are tailored for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. Throughout the two weeks, each student will be challenged to think and speak in Arabic as they learn the Arabic language and Arab culture.
The teaching staff is native Arabic speakers coming from Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Tunisia. They will provide the alphabet basics, foundational grammar principles, and pronunciation guidance for beginners. Intermediate and advanced students will increase their vocabulary and conversation skills through contextual dialogue sessions such as learning how to give a news interview, how to ask questions and how to give one ’s opinion in culturally appropriate ways. They will also engage in faster-paced dialogue sessions that focus upon listening, thinking, and speaking in Arabic and recognizing and communicating using different dialects.
The methodology of the course centers upon learning the language - how to speak the language - engage in dialogue as one learns about the language - the grammatical nuances and paradigms. The goal of both levels is to foster a natural verbal interaction where students can appreciate the Arabic language and culture.
Bridging Cultural Gaps
Our vision is to help students achieve their goals in the acquisition of the Arabic language to meet their linguistic needs to the highest degree. The vision is threefold: to acquire the language quickly, effectively and enjoyably.
We teach grammatical and linguistic concepts by centering them on examples reflecting political, economic, social and religious aspects of our daily life
All of the elements in a lesson ensure the students' acquisition of the essential skills in language learning:
Reading - Writing
Listening - Speaking
Step by Step
Our approach starts from simple concepts to build an understanding of more intricate notions throughout the different skills of language learning
Both the student and the instructors play the roles of the teacher and the learner in the class. This boosts the students' communication skills and gives them a sense of ownership in their language development
Regular assessment is essential to measure students' progress and language proficiency
