Our general Arabic language courses are suitable for learners of any level. They aim to enable communication in everyday situations and are an ideal way to improve your knowledge of Arabic, whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned speaker. A general course focuses predominantly on grammar and vocabulary, supported by development of speaking, reading, and listening skills. General courses are ideal if you want to attain or improve on an all-round level of Arabic, or build a strong foundation before moving on to business Arabic training.
Listen & Learn's general Arabic courses for groups are a great option for groups of 2-12 colleagues or friends who are at the same level in studying Arabic. Your group should have similar learning goals and be available to study at the same time and location every week. The courses are tailored to suit the group's level, no matter how elementary or advanced. General courses aim to give students knowledge of common Arabic that would be used in real scenarios. Your teacher will cover a lot of grammar and vocabulary, as well as give you ample opportunities to practise your reading, listening, and speaking skills. General group Arabic courses are great for groups who would like to begin learning Arabic, or improve on existing skills and knowledge. These courses are also highly recommended as a first step for companies who would like their employees to move on to a business language course once they have a working knowledge of Arabic.
With our one-to-one Arabic business courses, you can develop your current Arabic skills to incorporate them effortlessly into your job - perfect for those employed by multinational organisations, moving abroad to work, or in search of employment overseas. Lessons are designed around your sector of industry and field of work, and tutors can aid learners in improving individual skills required by your role, such as giving presentations, writing reports or composing formal written correspondence.
Group business Arabic courses are intended for small groups (of 2 to 12 students) who already have a working knowledge of Arabic, and want to extend their skills in the arena of business language. Your group should have approximately the same level of Arabic, whether that be intermediate, upper intermediate, or advanced. You should all be available at the same time every week, and have complementary learning aims. Your trainer will develop your course around your group's language goals and particular field of business, and can incorporate any specific areas of focus, such as improving negotiation or presentation skills. Group business language courses are suitable for a wide range of organisations, including multinational companies, and those whose employees require a higher level of Arabic to develop international business relationships.
