Top Courses in Arabic

A language course in Arabic can help learners communicate more proficiently with natives of Middle Eastern nations and Northern Africa. Learning Arabic can be beneficial to world travelers and international businesspersons.

If you want to travel to Middle Eastern countries as well as onto the continent of Africa, you may desire the ability to communicate verbally with residents. You may wonder, “What is a language course in Arabic?” Foreign language courses are designed to develop proficiency in specific second languages. Coursework introduces speech patterns and helps students with listening, reading, and writing skills. Awareness of the culture is also studied, as this is an important part of understanding the subtleties and nuances of Arabic communication.

There are many benefits in taking a language course in Arabic. In international business, it’s crucial to be able to communicate effectively, and the more proficient in other languages a person becomes, the more power he or she has to network with others around the world. Becoming multi-lingual also is good for brain stimulation and has been shown to curtail deterioration, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. Knowing more than one language can give a job applicant an edge when applying for multiple employment positions.

The cost to take a language course in Arabic varies depending on the program and institution’s global location. Some courses are offered online, while others are taught in-person on campuses. It would be wise to contact the desired academy to inquire about current tuition costs.

When students become proficient in the Arabic language, it widens their prospects in job opportunities. This skill can help individuals become interpreters, instructors, international businesspersons, or global managers. Becoming bilingual or multilingual looks impressive on your resume and gives you one more tool in your toolbox of job skills.

The world is becoming more of a global village than ever before. In order to succeed, you need to have the ability to communicate in more than just your native tongue. If you are ready to take action to expand your horizons, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

CMA or “darija” is the most widely spoken dialect in Morocco.

While most CMA words find their root in MSA, a part of the lexical is borrowed from Spanish, French, and Berber.

Depending on students interest, CMA may be taught utilizing either Arabic or Latin script, though the former is highly recommended to make life easier for daily tasks such as reading signs and getting around.

Like the MSA program, this program consists of three levels of studies.

***We have tailored our materials to serve the functional aspects of the dialect in day-to-day interactions with Moroccans rather than the structural aspects of it.

Also known as “al-fus’haa”, MSA is the language used throughout the Arab world for specialized functions, i.e. instruction, the electronic and printed media and formal situations.

Although it is not used for interpersonal communication in any of the Arab-speaking countries, learning MSA before any of the several spoken regional and local dialects which vary considerably from area to area provides learners with two advantages.

First, a good foundation in MSA facilitates the acquisition of any dialect a learner might wish to learn later. Second, unlike local dialects, MSA has readily understood anywhere in the Arab world.

Our MSA program is tailored to meet the needs of all students interested in learning or improving Standard Arabic. It provides them with the necessary knowledge and training to acquire a full and clear understanding of the Arabic language system.... [-]

The Standardized Arabic Test is a pioneer project developed by the Saudi Electronic University adhering to best international practices in assessing language proficiency, taking into consideration the unique characteristics of the Arabic language. The availability of the test worldwide enables learners of Arabic as a foreign language to immediately know their Arabic proficiency levels.

- Rector of Saudi Electronic University Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Mosa

Introduction

Since the idea of the Arabic Online Program was first conceived, the Saudi Electronic University has deemed it essential to prepare a standardized test to measure language skills for the increasing number of Arabic learners around the world. One of the major challenges was the lack of an up-to-date and comprehensive standardized test for Arabic learners, similar to standardized tests for other languages around the world, that are based on precise standards to achieve defined goals. The thoroughness of this Standardized Arabic Test, which has been prepared according to international standards of measuring language competence, is based on a deep understanding of the Arabic language system and a deeper understanding of contemporary language teaching theories, especially with respect to skills measurement and evaluation. After careful analysis of the latest methods in teaching and evaluating a second language, the best international practices were adapted within the Common European Framework of References for Languages (CEFR), which is the international evaluation of linguistic skills. The general theoretical framework and methodology for teaching and evaluating second language acquisition was adapted to meet the... [-]

Online Arabic Program is a vital online program and a turning point in the history of teaching Arabic to non-native speakers. The program is a new learning model offered by the Saudi Electronic University to teach the Arabic language. I may go as far as to suggest that the program makes learning Arabic as a foreign language readily available anywhere, anytime, the world over.

Because of a program of such nature, the beauty of the Arabic language may be experienced around the globe.

Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Mosa - Rector of Saudi Electronic University

Amman, capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, is an ancient city facing distinct modern challenges. Built on seven hills, Amman has expanded in size and population from a quaint sleepy town at the close of World War II, to the bustling, multicultural metropolis it is today. Jordan is deeply enmeshed in the international relations of the region, sharing land borders with Iraq, Israel, Palestine and Saudi Arabia. Further, Jordan remains a key player in Arab-Israeli affairs. Over the past several decades it has absorbed refugees from Palestine, Kuwaitis who left Kuwait after the Iraqi invasion in 1990 and most recently, Iraqi refugees. These new inhabitants have transformed Amman and brought new life to its local culture.... [-]

Located on the Atlantic Coast, Rabat is one of Morocco’s imperial cities as well as its political capital. Rabat exemplifies Morocco’s unique cultural blend of Arab, the indigenous Amazigh (Berber), and European influences. While downtown Rabat is home to the austere Parliament building and the King’s Palace, just a few blocks away is the old medina; a fortressed city with labyrinth alleys, markets, shops, and restaurants. Further down the road is the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Kasbah of the Udayas and the Bou Regreg River, with some of the best views of Rabat and the neighboring city of Salé. Al-Maghrib is a language enthusiast's dream as Moroccans speak multiple languages-typically including Moroccan Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, and French, as well as possibly an indigenous language (such as Tamazight, Tashleheit, or Tarifit), English, or Spanish. Famous for national dishes like couscous, tajine, and harira, Moroccan cuisine is nothing short of mouth-wateringly delicious. Despite the pervasiveness of Western influences, Amazigh and Arab identity continue to play a crucial role in Morocco’s traditional, yet, modern society. After achieving independence in 1956, Morocco became a constitutional monarchy and has been ruled by three successive Alaouite kings over the past 55+ years. Throughout his reign, the current king (Mohammed VI) has taken steps to reform the political, economic, and legal structures of Morocco. While the influence of the Arab Spring on this North African country is not as deep as elsewhere in the Arab world, Moroccans are increasingly engaged in the political arena... [-]
