Why Do Students Soon Discontinue Studying Arabic?

Arabic School for Foreign Students and Diplomats
Specialization: Spoken Arabic, the Levantine Dialect


We strongly believe that students who speak the Palestinian dialect first can approach fuṣḥa or Modern Standard Arabic easily.

We encourage universities to send classes to Bethlehem University to get a strong foundation for spoken Arabic

Our methodology for teaching the Levantine dialect to foreign students is used in different universities all over the world. The methodology was translated into different languages, among them English, German and French. The Italian and Finnish translations are in preparation.

Textbooks used in the center:

- Spoken Arabic for Foreigners I, II + dictionary
- Lehrbuch des Palästinensisch-Arabischen I, II
- Cours d’Arabe Parle Palestinian I, II

Beginning 2018 we offer only intensive courses. The following levels are offered each month during the year:
-Spoken Arabic Level I
-Spoken Arabic Level II
-Spoken Arabic Level III
-Spoken Arabic Level  IV and Media Arabic will be offered upon request.

- Students can register for one month or more.
- Students meet 4 hours per day, 4 days per week for 4 weeks.

- Fees: We trust students to choose the correct cost amount from the following:

 1- Fees paid by an organization is 603 JOD.
 2- Fees paid privately  603 JOD.
 3- Students affiliated with FAU- Erlangen,  LMU-Munich, Heidelberg, FU- Berlin, and Leipzig,  our partners in the Palestinian German Institute pays 580 JOD.
