ARABIC ( اَلْعَرَبِيَّةُ ) LANGUAGE COURSES:

Bismillah

Study Arabic with EarthDiverse!

OUR TERM 1 CLASSES BEGIN THE WEEK STARTING MONDAY 19 FEBRUARY 2024.

Our Introductory Arabic language courses begin with a focus on learning the Arabic script, reading and writing practice, an introduction to Arabic grammar, vocabulary, and conversational practice. Subsequent Terms reinforce both reading and writing, and introduce additional grammar, vocabulary and conversation.

EarthDiverse currently offers the following Arabic language classes on a rotating and evolving basis, with new intakes of students in Arabic 101 beginning twice a year, in Term 1 (February) and again in Term 3 (July/August). 101 and 103 courses are offered in Terms 1 and 3 each year, and 102 and 104 courses are offered in Terms 2 & 4 each year. If you’re interested in starting Arabic from scratch, you can do so twice a year, in Term 1 (early February) or Term 3 (July/August).  If you have some elementary understanding, you may consider starting in a 102 or 103 course as well. When completing one 8-week course, each cohort can begin advancing to the next course in the series. If you have knowledge or spoken and written Arabic and wish to practice your conversational skills, consider enrolling in our Arabic 300: Conversational Arabic course, offered each Term on a continuing basis.

LOCATION: EarthDiverse Centre, 401 Anglesea Street, Hamilton Central, Hamilton, on-line via Zoom, or through video recordings of our live-streamed sessions posted 1-2 days after each class.

DISTANCE-LEARNING OPTIONS: Our Arabic courses offer distance learning options for those unable to attend classes in-person. Live-streamed classes are available via free Zoom software, or those unable to attend the date and time of the actual class sessions can watch the live-recorded video sessions on their computers, laptops, tablets or mobile devices and study at their own pace. These recorded sessions will be available soon after each class finishes so that you may watch the recorded video via any web-browser at your leisure. Your instructor will provide details on how to access your classes before your course begins.
