Sign up for an intensive colloquial course open to all students above the age of 18 with a high school diploma, as well as to adult learners. Prior knowledge of Arabic isn’t required, which means you can take up this program even without language proficiency.

Classes last five hours each day for four days a week. These are complemented with an academic tour to various Arab communities on the fifth day to provide you an opportunity to actually speak Arabic and immerse in the culture. Locations of interest include the following:

• The Old City of Acre (Akko): Walk along the impressive walls of Acre and the Templars' tunnel or visit the 'Hamam el-Basha', a magnificent 18th-century bath house.

• Druze Villages in the Golan Heights: Experience the daily life and unique culture of traditional Druze villages. Visit a Druze household and learn about their interesting religion and history.

• Study Tour in Jerusalem: Visit the Temple Mount - a holy site for Jews, Christians, and Muslims - and listen to a lecture given by an Islamic archaeology expert. Enrich your experience and knowledge with an additional visit to the Museum of Islamic Art in Jerusalem.

The Spoken Arabic Intensive July Program places an emphasis on grammar and vocabulary through everyday situations and topics. It equips you with skills essential in communicating confidently and effectively in Levantine Arabic in a broad range of situations. Throughout the course, you will receive individual help from University of Haifa students who are native Arabic speakers.
