Accelerated Arabic Programme

Kickstart your journey in the Arabic language with ASI’s new Accelerated Arabic Programme!

This unique 6-week programme will serve as an in-depth study of the core foundation of the Arabic language, covering both linguistics and practical application like no other. Students will get a chance to gain a firm foundation in grammar and syntax, as well as improving their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. This method helps to improve comprehension and strengthen retention of key vocabulary. The programme has been designed to take students from no understanding in the Arabic language to an intermediate level in comprehension skills, whilst also developing their ability to express themselves in Arabic.

The holistic nature of the programme works on key competency skills that will facilitate and enhance the rest of a student’s journey in learning the Arabic language. From literature and culture to media and travel, within just 6 weeks you can begin to pursue one of the world’s most widely spoken languages! 

Students who successfully complete all 3 levels, including a final (optional) examination, will be awarded a Certificate in Foundation Level Classical Arabic and be eligible to apply for the Arabic Immersion Year at ASI.
