Program Details

Are you a high school or college student, professional, or language lover who would like to quickly increase your Arabic language and cultural skills? This program is for you! Alif is offering an intensive, in-person domestic program that will allow you to study Arabic language as you immerse yourself in the culture.

This four-week program will give you an in person, intensive language and cultural experience in your backyard:

    • You will learn Integrated Levantine Arabic inspired by the Arabic as One Language Cornell University integrated Arabic model in tandem with Alif’s critical intercultural communication curriculum.
    • We offer several levels of Arabic language proficiency, from Beginner to Advanced Intermediate:
      • Students with prior Arabic language knowledge will take a placement test to accurately assess their level.
    • You will practice speaking Arabic online with refugees via Natakallam as well as Atlanta’s native Arabic-speaking community; engage in hands-on Arabic culinary, music, and dance workshops.
    • Upon completing the course, beginning students will have the option to demonstrate their linguistic proficiency at the novice/intermediate level by completing a standardized test by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI).
    • Students will demonstrate critical cultural awareness measured by quantitative and qualitative means.
    • Transfer of credit may be arranged with your home institution.
    • For more information, please email arabic@alifinstitute.org.
