Arabic (Course Levels & Overview)
About this course
There are, an estimated, over 420 million Arabic speakers around the world. The Qur’an was written in Classical Arabic, also known as Quranic Arabic, and it is very rare to hear Classical Arabic being spoken today. The form of Arabic that is more commonly used today is known as the Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). MSA is based from Classical Arabic, and is used more commonly in writing and formal speaking (e.g. news articles and news presenters). It is widely taught in schools, universities and used to varying degrees in workplaces, government and the media. It is also the form of Arabic that is taught at our School.
Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), most commonly used in writing and formal speaking today, will be the form of Arabic students will learn in this course. Through the use of the romanization of the Arabic alphabet, and English translation, students will learn Arabic dialogue, basic grammar, vocabulary and expressions. It will also illustrate communication etiquette and formalities on how to address others. Even though this class emphasises on the speaking aspect of the Arabic language, it also offers a small portion on the writing of Arabic characters.
At Oxford Language Academy, we offer a variety of Arabic courses that are sure to meet your requirements in learning Arabic. These include part-time private Arabic language classes for adults and corporate language training for businesses.

Corporate Language Training
With globalisation bringing people from various parts of the world together, it is crucial for businesses to adapt and be prepared for new opportunities that may come with this change in environment. Customers coming from different parts of the world may not always understand English, which may result in a language barrier between your business and your potential partners or clients.
With the use of phonetic exercises, students will learn proper pronunciation of the Arabic language, as well as, speaking in the correct Arabic accent. Our aim is to develop students’ conversational skills and appreciation for Arabic. Students will be able to seamlessly converse by delivering simple sentences and honing a vocabulary of at least 400 words. Hence, at the end of the course, students will be able to construct basic sentences with proper grammatical structure.
