Our Arabic teachers are able to tailor your course to fit your precise learning goals, taking into account any current competence in the language and building upon it. All our native Arabic tutors are fully qualified and ready to arrange classes in your home or place of work in Brighton, and lessons are arranged according to your timetable, not theirs. Course text books are included in the price, and lesson times can easily be rearranged in advance. Your tailormade course depends on your chosen package:
Our general courses are a good place to start your Arabic studies, or to improve upon your current skills. They give focused attention to expanding your day-to-day grammar and vocabulary, enabling you to improve your spoken and written Arabic with relative speed and ease. General courses best suit those wishing to improve their Arabic to conversational level, as well as students who hope to continue their Arabic studies to a more advanced level.
Our group courses in general Arabic are perfect if you have a group of 2-12 students who have achieved approximately the same level of Arabic, whether that be beginner or advanced. Your teacher will focus on Arabic grammar and vocabulary that will be useful in everyday communication, and will provide plenty of practice with speaking, reading, and listening. Your group should have similar learning goals, and be available at the same time and location every week. A general group course is suitable for groups of colleagues or friends, and is also a good option for businesses who want to give their employees a basic grounding in Arabic before they begin a business Arabic course.
1-to-1 business Arabic courses can really help you get ahead, whether you are relocating abroad, looking for work in a foreign country, or simply if you work for a multinational organisation. These courses are mainly aimed at learners who already possess a decent working Arabic knowledge and who want to build on these in order to use their Arabic skills in a business environment. The course is fully customised to take into account not only your learning needs, but also the appropriate industry's vocabulary and any particular skills the role demands, such as report writing or formal correspondence.
These business Arabic courses are aimed at groups of 2 to 12 people who already have a fair working Arabic knowledge, who wish to convert this knowledge to practicable business use. So long as all members of the group are at the same level of Arabic at the start of the course, and are able to meet for each class at a pre-arranged time and place, then the classes will be of great benefit to all involved. Business courses will generally focus on the field or industry in question, incorporating related vocabulary and improving appropriate skills, such as writing reports, formal business correspondence or giving a presentation.
Specific purpose courses in Arabic are aimed at those who already have semi-proficient skills in Arabic but wish to improve in particular areas of expertise. Your teacher can guide you through many features of Arabic to help you gain fluency, linguistic or not. These may include:
• Accent softening / pronunciation

• Language for international travel Business communication skills (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Business writing skills (e.g. proposals, reports, formal correspondence)
• Vocabulary for particular industry (e.g. medical, legal, HR, engineering, accounting)
• Understanding historical and cultural context

"I am extremely happy with the teacher. I learned a lot and the pace is very good. We always start on time and if I have any questions, Sabah is able to answer them. I also like the personal service that you provide as well as the customer support. I was a little skeptical at the beginning because, with online commerce, you hope to get what you pay for…but this is not true in most of the cases. People will receive real value for their money with Listen & Learn. I was talking to a friend of mine and she told me ‘this online language course idea is fantastic. You are from Alaska, learning Arabic from an Arab teacher who is in Ireland; there are no frontiers!'"

Originally a small fishing village called Brighthelmstone, Brighton became a fashionable destination for day-trippers in the 19th century when rail travel first made the idea feasible. A major attraction is the pebble beach, which features many bars, restaurants, nightclubs and arcades; giving Brighton the nickname London-by-the-sea.
