We get it, you don’t know anything more than “marhabaan” and “shukraan,” or maybe you’ve taken a decade off. Either way, you’re ready for that all to change with Arabic 1. This class is perfect for you if you're completely new to the language and want to get the basics down to start speaking conversational Arabic.

Here's what to expect

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Nothing! Because this course is designed for complete beginners, you’ll be ready to join even if you’ve never spoken a word of Arabic in your life. 

THE NITTY GRITTY

The alphabet and pronunciation. Formal vs. informal. Adjectives and prepositions. Possessive. Definite article. 

 

YOU’LL BE ABLE TO

Introduce yourself and your family, ask people's names and jobs, describe places and ask for directions. 

 

NERVOUS? DON’T BE

From day one, you’ll be engaging in conversation with your instructor and your classmates. This will prepare you to feel confident and comfortable when speaking with natives.
