With today’s geopolitical issues and economic development in the Gulf countries, the number of Arabic speakers is growing rapidly. Arabic is the official language of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia, however, there are variants of Arabic spoken from one country to the next.

We offer courses in “modern” Arabic, also called “modern standard” or “literary” Arabic. Understood by all Arabic speakers, modern Arabic is taught at school and used in newspapers, on the radio, the Internet, and on recently created pan-Arab television networks.
