Arabic is the 5th most commonly spoken language in the world, with some 300 million Arabic-speaking people around the globe. Knowing both the Arabic language and having a deeper understanding of some of the wide variety of Arab cultures opens the opportunities to take up careers in various fields, such as journalism, business, finance, teaching, diplomacy, and security.
Arabic is the second official language of the State of Israel, after Hebrew. Nearly 20% of Israel population are native Arabic speakers.
Grow your career: There is a shortage of Westerners who can speak Arabic and who understand the culture.

Broaden your horizons: Arabic is the official language of many countries in the Middle East and North Africa; and is the second official language of the State of Israel. Whether you plan to live, work or travel in these countries, being able to communicate in Arabic is a huge advantage.
Take the lead: Arab countries are a potential growth market for International Western trade. Being able to speak Arabic gives you a competitive advantage.
Political insight: The political crises in the Middle East have continued to gain momentum. Learning to speak Arabic like a native-speaker provides a deeper understanding into the dynamics of the global market, security sector and military actions of the past, present and future.

The colloquial Arabic Language program is aimed at beginners with little or no knowledge of the Arabic language. The purpose of the program is to give students a basic understanding of Modern Spoken Arabic while teaching them to communicate on a basic level. (Intermediate and advanced levels are also available). The program teaches the spoken Palestinian language of Jerusalem; a dialect used widely throughout Israel and the world.
Classes are held four to five days a week for no more than five hours a day, running Sunday through Thursday, with the weekends off for excursions and exploring. Both traditional teaching elements and modern multidisciplinary methodologies are utilized in order to accelerate immersion and comprehension. Over the course, students are exposed to a wide range of vocabulary emphasizing everyday interactions. The course strategy is to engage students in a multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary approach that encourages them to learn Arabic by speaking and interaction, rather than memorization of class lectures.
