Our Arabic speakers, fully qualified to teach their native tongue, can train you and, if need be, the rest of your group at a time that is suitable to you, at your home or place of work. Sessions can take place on the day of your choosing - even weekends - and at the time you want: whether it be morning, afternoon or evening. If circumstances arise where your home or office is not convenient, the classes can be held at your trainer's office. Resources for the lesson are provided for you.
These lessons in Arabic are wider-ranging in their nature, and are driven towards students who have a variety of differing needs. All beginner students will expect to study enough survival Arabic to get them through a short visit to the country, those staying on with the lesson can progress differently, depending on their individual requests and requirements. Whether you are buying property in a foreign country, married to a foreign national, planning a round-the-world trip, interested in Arabic history and culture, or if you simply want to attain a particular level of Arabic, this is the choice for you.
These Arabic Lessons are intended for people who really need to learn Arabic to help make that difference in their work. For beginners, it will be useful to learn greetings and basic business etiquette, at higher levels reading and then writing become more important. Typical students include those involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where an additional language is required, and those working with international colleagues, academia and government. Even on our most basic lesson for Beginners, students should expect to end the lesson with basic Telephone Arabic and e-mail Arabic skills for communications as well as Survival Arabic required for short visits to a country.
2 or more people can benefit studying Arabic together as these Arabic lessons are also offered to groups (Two-to-One Arabic Lesson or Small Group In-Company Arabic Lesson). Every student must have the same degree of knowledge of the language, the same business or language needs and the ability to study at the same time and place as everybody else. The booking has to be made for all students at the same time. Listen & Learn do not advocate group sessions of more than 6-8 people, though Taster Arabic Lessons can be experienced by up to 12 people.
Over 20 countries have Arabic as their national language, including Iraq, Kuwait, Algeria, Egypt, Bahrain, Iraq, Israel, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and the UAE
Arabic was integral during medieval times, exporting to Europe many important cultural, artistic and philosophical documents
Arabic is a wonderful example of 'diglossia': where the same language has two forms. Most Arabic speakers will be able to understand and use the Arabic they taught in school as well as their regional dialect
"I was so worried about learning Arabic because of the alphabet, and it always sounded so complicated to me. But thanks to my patient teacher I've made amazing progress in the last couple of months. I've always wanted to learn Arabic and it's amazing to be on my way!"
Las VegasThe city of Las Vegas, situated in the state of Nevada has an unusual history, having originally been part of Mexico until it was annexed by the US in 1855. Its array of lavish hotels and casinos has led to it being labeled the 'entertainment capital of the world'. The most famous of these casinos are situated on Las Vegas Boulevard and are the perfect place to go if you have a few spare dollars in your pocket and enjoy the rush of a spot of blackjack, poker or roulette. If gambling is not your thing, Vegas has plenty more to offer - the city also has a rich and diverse artistic community. 'First Friday' is a must-see event, which takes place on the first Friday of each month in the Downtown Arts District, where local artists and musicians perform to crowds and passers-by. All these attractions added to the fantastic climate of hot summers, mild winters and year-round sunshine make Vegas a great destination to learn a foreign language.
