Arabic. Learn Arabic with us.

Our Arabic courses will broaden your cultural understanding of the festivities and foods we have come to love about this community, while giving you a firm understanding of the language. We teach Modern Standard Arabic, the formal Arabic that is written and spoken throughout the contemporary Arab world. Modern Standard Arabic is the language of the news media, intellectual life, literature and is the form of Arabic universally taught in schools of the Arab world.

Our beginners Arabic classes are suitable for people who have no prior knowledge of the Arabic language, while subsequent courses progressively increase the complexity of language concepts. If you want to learn to speak Arabic, our Arabic courses are ideal for adult learners to enjoy a practical and social experience while you learn Arabic language and culture. Learn Arabic the smart way with Arabic courses at CCE, the University of Sydney.
