Come experience Lirom’s exhilarating Arabic Study Abroad Program!

The colloquial Arabic Language program is aimed at beginners with little or no knowledge of the Arabic language. The purpose of the program is to give students a basic understanding of modern spoken Arabic, while teaching them to communicate on a basic level (intermediate and advanced levels are also available). The program teaches the spoken Palestinian language of Jerusalem; a dialect used widely throughout Israel and the world. 

Classes are held four to five days a week for no more than five hours a day, running Sunday through Thursday, with the weekends off for excursions and exploring. Both traditional teaching elements and modern multidisciplinary methodologies are utilized in order to accelerate immersion and comprehension. Over the course students are exposed to a wide range of vocabulary emphasizing everyday interactions. The course strategy is to engage students in a multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary approach that encourages them to learn Arabic by speaking and interaction, rather than memorization of class lectures.
