Choose Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), Levantine Spoken Arabic, or both
ALPS adapts to each student’s scheduling needs and caters to students of every level.
All Arabic lessons incorporate the daily life and culture of Beirut enabling students to put their learning into practice right from the first day. Since the Lebanese learn Spoken Arabic in the home and not in school it can be difficult to find a good curriculum. ALPS textbooks have been developed by linguistic specialists, perfected through years of experience, and proven to produce great results.
It is our outstanding teachers and small class sizes that truly make the ALPS Difference. All class sizes are 6 or less students.
