Al-Mashriq Center for Arabic Instruction
Company (11-100 employees)
Al-Mashriq is a unique language training center and study abroad program in Amman, Jordan. Our mission is to provide effective, high quality instruction for students of Arabic who seek comprehensive communication skills, not just the ability to read and write Modern Standard Arabic.
Most Arabic-as-a-foreign-language programs focus on MSA for all four language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and teach spoken Arabic as an afterthought. This traditional system leaves many students struggling to communicate as they are not prepared to deal with the language in everyday settings. In order to solve this problem and close the gap between Arabic classrooms and the real world, we teach the living language as it is used by native speakers every day. Courses introduce spoken Levantine Arabic and use it for ordinary conversation and discussion throughout the course and MSA for reading, writing and formal speech.
Our programs give students the tools they need to navigate life in any Arabic-speaking country.
