Arabic Language and Culture

AMIDEAST is strongly committed to providing students of Arabic with the highest quality programs that are challenging, rigorous, and practical. AMIDEAST has designed its own Arabic language curriculum, based on the most up-to-date approaches to language teaching. This approach to Arabic language instruction is:

  • Functional
  • Communicative
  • Proficiency-based
  • Culturally rich

To implement its Arabic language curriculum, AMIDEAST has created a system that focuses on:

  • Selection of the qualified teachers
  • Development of clear guidelines for each course at each level in the curriculum
  • Creation of new materials (where necessary) to effectively integrate the cultural component into the Colloquial Arabic courses at each program site
  • Ongoing review of the faculty and the courses throughout the year by AMIDEAST’s Arabic Studies Consultant
  • Continuous needs assessment and in-service training for the teachers to assist them in delivering AMIDEAST’s Arabic language curriculum

Each AMIDEAST Education Abroad Program includes a wide range of levels in both Modern Standard and colloquial Arabic.  Please click on the following pages to learn more about AMIDEAST's Arabic offerings:
