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 Galway, 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.
Group Arabic courses are available for groups of 2 to 12 people - we require only that your group are able to meet at the same time and place each week, and that you are all at approximately the same level in your Arabic studies (no matter how elementary or advanced). As a general course, the focus will be on building conversational skills for common, real-life Arabic situations. If you need you and your employees to have a working knowledge of Arabic, this is the best place to start.
Our one-to-one business Arabic courses are intended for those learners who already have a basic grounding in Arabic, but need to develop specific language skills to aid effective business communication. These courses can be tailored to address the requirements of your particular field, and can include development of any necessary skills, such as public speaking or professional correspondence. Business Arabic courses are a perfect option for people working in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, and multinational companies where some knowledge of Arabic is required. They are also ideal for jobseekers, people transferring to a foreign country, and those working with international colleagues, academia and government.
Intended for learners who already have a basic grasp of Arabic and wish to extend it to apply to their working lives, group business Arabic courses are a great way to enable employees within a multinational corporation to be productive in both their native tongue and their newly-acquired Arabic.

The tutor will develop the group's vocabulary to suit the related industry, as well as improve competence for day to day tasks performed in Arabic.
