Overview of our Arabic Language Immersion Programs
The Arabic immersion programs offered through Language Skills Abroad are intended to enable the student to study Arabic abroad and learn Arabic as rapidly as possible. The Arabic language school provides the opportunity to participate in small classes, take private lessons, or both.
The classrooms use the communicative approach for learning Arabic. Students focus on improving their conversational skills from the first day of class. Complete beginners start by covering simple, basic topics such as learning how to identify themselves, explain where they are from… etc. As a student becomes more proficient in their Arabic courses abroad, more extensive topics, such as economics and politics will be covered in Arabic. While exploring new topics, students learn vocabulary and grammar at a faster rate. Within a short time, the student will find him/herself able to effectively converse in Arabic!
Effectiveness of an Arabic immersion program
During the course of the Arabic language immersion program, the learning doesn’t stop once class is over. It is best to study Arabic abroad because while living in a country where Arabic is the common language, you will constantly practice what you learned in class. Those who study Arabic abroad are consistently using and developing their language skills. When studying abroad, just running a simple errand such as grocery shopping or ordering a meal means having to use Arabic and gives the needed practice to really learn Arabic. Though this may be quite challenging at first, within a short period of time, you will obtain the language skills that will help you to communicate fluently in Arabic.

Reasons to stay with a host family during your study abroad experience
Arabic language immersion programs are particularly effective because they provide the opportunity to live with a host family (though, in Egypt, this option is only available to females – other accommodation options are available for both male and female students). Our host families, and apartments, have all been inspected and approved by the Arabic language school in Egypt. Staying with a host family allows the opportunity to practice the Arabic learned in class in a very natural family environment.
· Host families in our language immersion programs are middle class by local standards.
