For Children & Teens

Arabic Language for Children offers public, private/ semi-private courses and seasonal camps.

Arabic Language Centre for Children has been teaching Arabic to children (3-16 years) for over 33 years. The longevity of our success is due to two key factors: our unique method of teaching and our team of enthusiastic and passionate teaching staff. We use a simplified and logical approach to make the experience, easy, effective and fun. We teach the Arabic that is spoken every day, Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), which can be understood throughout the Arab World. In later levels, we gradually introduce classical Arabic, which is necessary for those intending to study for Advanced Levels.
