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.
Listen & Learn's one-on-one Arabic courses for business are integral in taking your existing Arabic skills and making them indispensible for day-to-day business tasks. Lessons are adapted to suit your particular industry and field, and your teacher can help you master specific skills, such as presentation skills and formal business correspondence. This is the best option for professionals who work for international corporations, as well as businessmen working from abroad or seeking overseas work.
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.

Luton factsA large town situated in the south of England, Luton has a population of around 185,000. The town is historically famous for hat making, though by the 20th century modern industries replaced this, including Vauxhall Motors opening the largest car plant in the UK in Luton in 1905 (used for the construction of tanks during the Second World War), which only recently closed in 2002. The culture of the city is diverse and rich due to the many and varied backgrounds of the people who live there. This is reflected in many of the festivals, parks and the nightlife of the town.
