Subul Assalam Centre for the Arabic Language

Language Courses


SACAL offers a complete curriculum of Standard and Moroccan Arabic language courses, as well as a complement of English-language courses on Morocco and Islam.  Each Arabic course has a standard length of three weeks.  Students are welcome to take several language courses in sequence.

SACAL can also design custom programmes for groups, including study schedules that combine Arabic instruction with field trips and cultural courses.  Teachers or administrators wishing to tailor a programme for their students are encouraged to contact SACAL administrators to discuss their wishes.

Core Courses:

Modern Standard Arabic

All students beginning Modern Standard Arabic use Alif Baa (Georgetown University Press) for the first four week session. After students have learned the alphabet, we offer two sets of courses.  We can offer a full course using Al-Arabiyyah Bayna Yadayk series.  Alternatively, we offer a full course using Georgetown University’s Al-Kitaab series. We recommend the first option for our students, but realize that Al-Kitaab suits some students better, as it is the standard Arabic textbook in many universities. Upon request, we can also offer a course using AL-Madina book Dorous fi Alloghah Al-Arabiyyah.

All of our courses are taught by native Arabic speakers with years of experience in Arabic education.

In addition to our regular calendar, we are happy to arrange private classes for individuals and groups throughout the year.  Please contact us if you are interested in setting up a private tutorial.
