For students and teachers of the Arabic language
posted by Jeremy Palmer @ 22:41
I am searching for a good Arabic language course - preferably in an immersion setting like Damascus. I have emailed Damascus University. Is there also a course offered by the British Council in Damascus. I am a high beginner at the moment but by next summer (2006) I should be a full-fledged intermediate learner though my speaking facility is pretty awful - little chance for me to speak Arabic in Toronto. Thanks from Betsy
Good for you! I am glad that you are looking to study Arabic. I know that the British Council offers colloquial classes, and they may offer Fusha classes as well. You should check their website. I have a link to it on this blog. Let me know if you have any more questions! You can email directly if you want. Best,Jeremy
I am looking for the same at present - to start in January '06. I just had an email from the British Council in Damascus, informing me that (at least at present) they do not plan any language courses (including the Syrian Dialect courses). When I phoned them I was told that "the only place to learn Arabic was at the University of Damascus". There are other possibilities, however, but private, not institutional. Elena
Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!I have a internet access site. It pretty much covers ##Internet## related stuff.Come and check it out if you get time :-)
I would recommend private lessons with Hala Loulou. She is a very professional Arabic teacher (Modern standard Arabic (Fusha) and also the Syrian dialect) and she does made-to-measure courses depending on the amount of time you are going to spend in Damascus. Contact her via her website www.halaloulou.comShe is sooo patient and friendly and simply a great teacher.Ciao ciao!
