Dive deeper with our Integrated Arabic Curriculum

A one-of-a-kind Arabic program that combines Modern Standard Arabic with colloquial Arabic for an authentic real-world experience.

Interested in learning Arabic from scratch or further developing your proficiency with greater structure?

NaTakallam’s curriculum option may be perfect for you!
Developed in partnership with the Head of the Arabic Department at Cornell University, this unique program is based on the textbook ‘Arabiyyat al-Naas & integrates colloquial Arabic (Levantine dialect) with Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) in a way that reflects the use of the language by native speakers.
The curriculum is personalized and suitable for beginner, intermediate & advanced learners.

Learn as the Natives Speak

Most Arabic-as-a-foreign-language programs focus on MSA for all four language skills – listening, speaking, reading & writing – and add in colloquial spoken Arabic later, if at all. This traditional teaching method leaves many students struggling to communicate verbally, especially when they travel in the region & desire to use the language in everyday settings.

In an effort to resolve this common challenge and close the gap between classroom settings and the real world, ‘Arabiyyat al-Naas teaches students the living language as it is used by native speakers every day. The curriculum introduces spoken Levantine Arabic (the Arabic used in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine) and uses it for ordinary conversation and discussions throughout the course, while using MSA for reading, writing and formal or scripted speech.
