Our Summer Cultural Immersion Program offers you 10 action-packed days in one of the most dynamic and vibrant cities in the Arab world. From the Beirut campus of Lebanese American University, participants enjoy a full program of Lebanese dialect classes and cultural activities, as well as taking off for experiences across the city and far beyond. On campus, you will explore diverse facets of the culture through lectures that delve into the complexities of the region and activities that range from dancing the dabke and getting in tune with Lebanese music to cooking the local cuisine.

The Lebanese Dialect course, which consists of a transferable credit, will be offered for you to learn spoken Arabic and gain fluency through description, narration, and argumentation. Practice is crucial to gaining confidence in the Lebanese dialect, and with your own designated language buddy you’ll have plenty of opportunity to do just this. This is a great way to put to use everything you learn in your daily classroom lessons and to maximize your learning potential.
