New York City / Arabic

Arabic 1

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.

Conversation First

Speaking is at the heart of all of our classes, and in an immersive setting, you’ll get even more opportunity to practice critical speaking and listening skills.

Fluent City is a great way to learn a language. The class structure is easy to follow and manageable. Sign up if you're on the fence, it's worth it!

Here's what to expect

Step 1

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.

Step 2

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO

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

Step 3

THE NITTY GRITTY

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

Step 4

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.

We love questions, almost as much as we love providing answers. Here are a few samplings of what we're typically asked, along with our responses

Do you hold classes on holidays?

We know our students and teachers probably have holiday plans, so we do not hold classes on holidays. The full list of our skip dates is New Years Day, Martin Luther King Jr Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and a holiday break between Christmas and New Years.

How many times do you group classes meet?

All of our group classes, except Essentials, are 2 hours once a week for 10 sessions. Our Essentials classes are 1.5 hours twice a week for 12 weeks.

Can I cancel my enrollment or transfer to another level?

Plans change—we get it. You have until 7 days before the start date of your Group Course to make any cancelations or same-level transfers. After that, there are no refunds under any circumstance. During the first 2 weeks of class, however, if you feel your level isn't the right fit, reach out to [email protected], and we will transfer you to a better fit, free of charge!

What happens if I miss a class?

Most students do miss a class, or two, and we’re here to help ensure that you won’t fall behind despite any missed classes. We’ve set up our curriculum to make lessons easy to follow along outside of class, and your teacher will reach out to your group each week with a summary of materials, topics, and homework covered in-class.
