  • Designed for people who want to take their existing Arabic further.
  • These classes are dynamic; planned and delivered by a qualified and experienced teacher, who will speak in the target language almost exclusively to allow for total immersion.
  • They are recommended for people who have studied Arabic before, perhaps as part of a degree course, or having lived in an Arabic speaking country. If you are uncertain, please do get in touch at with a few details about your experience and we can advise you. 
  • During the course you will have the opportunity to explore a variety of topics through interactive and communicative activities; special attention will also be paid to refining your pronunciation and intonation: sound like a native! 
  • Saturdays 2-4pm, commencing 2nd May


  • for people who have some basics, or have completed this year’s Arabic Beginner course
  • Mondays 6-8pm, commencing 27th April


  • for those who want to start from the very beginning
  • Fridays 6-8pm, commencing 1st May


All courses will run for 10 weeks ending in July.

Our teacher Hasnaa says:

“I am Hasnaa from Syria. I love teaching and have over 10 years of experience teaching spoken and standard Arabic. I am a journalist. I also like writing short stories and poetry.  I will share my passion for languages and different aspects of culture. I have a TAFL certificate for teaching Arabic as a foreign language. I am teaching at international schools now, and I also prepare students for official exams. The classes are adapted according to the needs of each student.

My ways of teaching depend on four skills of Arabic language, particularly conversations and speaking, after explaining all the basic rules on writing, reading and listening.”

“Nowadays learning languages are so important especially, Arabic because firstly, it is the most spoken and spoken language in the Semitic language group and one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Secondly, there are plenty of opportunities to work with a lot of organisations that work with refugees who speak Arabic. Thirdly,  for travelling to Arab countries. Finally, when you choose to learn Arabic, you are in fact broadening your life experiences. You will be able to open the door to a whole new host of activities and interactions that wouldn’t have been available to you before.”
