Autumn 2021 programme

Starting classes is exciting especially at the Centre for Jerusalem Studies of Al Quds University which has been teaching Arabic as a secondary language for more than two decades.  Both Modern Standard and Levantine colloquial Arabic courses are taught by a pool of well experienced teachers.  Courses are offered all year long in our three campuses in Jerusalem & Ramallah, for all levels from beginning to advanced in the morning and evening. Our curriculum is based on known book series, used by many well known universities in teaching Arabic such as the Al-Kitaab series published by the Georgetown University Press, for standard courses, and the Yallah Nihki Arabi series by Dr. Omar Othman for spoken, in addition to our own supplemental materials to fill in the gaps and create a more complete and exciting learning experience. 

* Small or one-on-one classes can be arranged for interested students .
