SINARC welcomes students from across the world who wish to study all levels of Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and the Lebanese dialect. As a SINARC student, you will benefit from full language immersion that combines classroom teaching with real-life practice as well as immersion in the culture of Lebanon and the Arab world through lectures, excursions and experiences. SINARC’s classes are offered both in the heart of Beirut at the Lebanese American University (LAU), where you could get fully immersed with local language and culture, or in the heart of Manhattan, at the LAU New York Academic Center.
