Available Classes

Learn basic vocabulary and expressions in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) that will give you communicative access to the Arabic-speaking Middle East and North Africa. This will cover greetings, biographical information, basic directions, food and drink, and place and object names pertinent to travel. All content will be taught in transliteration (English transcription of the equivalent Arabic sounds) and as such, no knowledge of the Arabic alphabet is required nor will it be taught. Please note, this is not an Arabic dialect course. All content will be delivered in standardised Arabic (MSA) that, while not the default language in daily life, is understood by all Arabs and spoken by most when necessary.
