Arabic is spoken in so many countries and so many ways! At Taalhuis Amsterdam you can choose between Modern Standard Arabic (فصحى / FusHa) and courses in the Egyptian (مصري /MaSry) and Levantine (شامي / Shaamy) dialect. Our latest addition is Moroccan!
The Modern Standard Arabic courses focus on reading and writing and once you’ve mastered the alphabet you’ll continue with vocabulary and grammar.
The Arabic dialect courses focus on conversational skills in Egyptian, Levantine, the spoken varieties of Arabic that are commonly understood all over the Arab World or Moroccan Arabic. You’ll learn practical phrases for all kinds of situations and you’ll practice these with interactive exercises. The course material is composed of the textbook, songs, audio samples and video clips. You’ll be surprised by how much you’ll be able to say and understand in Arabic after the course!
In the schedule below you’ll find a MSA beginners course starting in June and the option to book private lessons.
A ‘full course round’ (all levels MSA, Levantine, Egyptian) started in April. Are you interested in joining one of the courses already running? Please contact us to discuss options! We will have a full course schedule again starting September (including Moroccan).
Currently all our courses take place online. You can find more information about Corona and other practical details here.
