“NaTakallam is a really excellent initiative. The West is filled with students learning Arabic but lacking exposure to Arabic life, culture, and people. We are taught to speak formally about the United Nations, but can’t hold a conversation about daily life. NaTakallam gives Arabic students unique access to the Arabic-speaking world. More importantly, speaking with Syrians who are fleeing extreme violence can teach sheltered Western students some degree of humility and compassion as they study the abstract ‘Arab world’. It’s a beautiful program, and I’ve actively encouraged all of my colleagues to sign up.”

Please feel free to sign up and register your interest for French, regardless, and we will notify you as soon as our new CPs are ready to start.
Looking for a bit more structure?
Check out our Integrated Arabic Curriculum for beginners.
Developed in partnership with the Head of the Arabic Department at Cornell University, this program is completely unique, based on the textbook ‘Arabiyyat al-Naas and integrates colloquial Arabic with Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) in a way that reflects the use of the language by native speakers.
