Our academic program is rigorous and follows our strategy of a communicative, student-centered approach with Arabic as the language of instruction. While challenging at first, this has proven to allow for tangible language gains in a short period of time. Our experienced and qualified teachers meet our students where they are on their language learning journey and adapt their teaching strategies and pace themselves to students’ needs. We follow the ACTFL proficiency levels with our students completing one sublevel every four weeks. The daily schedule covers four full hours of instruction using a mixture of different textbooks, complementing teaching resources, and authentic excerpts from Arabic print and broadcast media. Complementary materials will be provided in class. Students of all levels and backgrounds are welcome and will be placed based on their performance on our placement test.
