You and your group can be trained by our native speaker qualified Arabic teachers, and can meet at your place of work or home at a time convenient to you. Tutorials can take place any day of the week, including weekends, and can be scheduled for the morning, afternoon or evening. If your home or office is not suitable for you, you can attend the lesson at the teacher's offices. You will be provided with all relevant lesson materials.
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.
Arabic lessons of this type are aimed towards those that need to learn Arabic to aid them with their employment. For those just starting out, it is integral to learn basic greetings and business etiquette; and reading and writing can be adopted once the simple precepts are out of the way. Success has come from students who are involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, those seeking jobs in multinational companies, and those working with foreign colleagues, academia and bureaucracy. Just our most basic beginners lesson will have the student finishing the lesson with basic telephone/e-mail skills in Arabic, as well as survival Arabic should a short stay in the country be needed.
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.
Arabic is in many ways the equivalent in the Middle East to Latin in Europe - it has lent much of its vocabulary to surrounding tongues, including Urdu, Hindi, Persian and Kurdish
Derived from Aramaic, the Arabic alphabet goes from right to left, and there are many variances between the Middle Eastern version and that adopted by the West
In written Arabic, nouns have three different cases and two genders; they can be singular, dual or plural, and unlike European languages, nouns also have a state - 'indefinite', 'definite' and 'construct'
"I have recently completed my Arabic course with my extremely helpful, native speaking, and really qualified teacher. She helped me a lot with my basics in Arabic, and it was a wonderful experience for me!"
MilwaukeeWilkommen nach Deutsches-Athen! (Welcome to German Athens!) Milwaukees fascinating history of immigration makes interesting reading, but even better language learning opportunities! Even though the bulk of immigration from German-speaking German states and Austria happened in the 1840s, the German influence on the city is still felt today through the prime industries of brewing and manufacturing - and the fact that there are more Schmitts and Schmidts in the phone book than Smiths! Even into the twentieth century, Milwaukee was host to more German speakers and German-language press than the English language equivalents. Large influxes of immigrants have also arrived from Poland, Central and Eastern Europe. Milwaukee shares the recognition of having the highest percentage of foreign-born residents with New York City, when compared to figures from all the rest of the United States. The time is ripe to launch into another language in Milwaukee!
