Why take this course?

Whether you require some Arabic to advance professionally or desire to improve your personal quality of life, learning basic Saudi language and culture is the first step towards enjoying the most fulfilling experience in the Kingdom. 

What to expect

Each session will include both cultural topic discussions in English and full-immersion Arabic training. For example, when you discuss Saudi hospitality, the language portion will focus on objects and sayings you can use in your next meeting or visit. You’ll learn the most common Saudi vocabulary, phrases, and expressions using our proprietary ICE Methodology and role play situations in a dynamic, interactive small-group environment of 3-8 people, so everyone will get focused practice and personal attention. 

What you’ll gain

After completing this course, you’ll be able to show respect to your colleagues, neighbors, and friends with customary verbal and non-verbal communication. You’ll know how to navigate everyday situations, and you’ll gain confidence to interact on a basic level. Most importantly, you’ll unlock the ability to more effectively engage with Saudi culture, which will empower you to enjoy this extraordinary country and people like never before. 

For a higher level of Saudi Arabic proficiency, continue your studies in our Level 1A course.

Why take this course?

Start here if you’re beginning your Arabic journey, switching dialects, or refreshing your foundational vocabulary. In Level 1A you will enter the world of a Saudi communicator and learn through full Arabic immersion from the first day. Neuroscience shows that when learning a new language, listening is the most efficient, effective way our brains build categories and connections with the new sounds, so Level 1A has a strong emphasis on ear training. You’ll fast-track your neurolinguistic development by listening to words and phrases, understanding their meanings, then responding by performing actions and moving objects accordingly. This process creates long-term connections among the ear, eye, voice, and brain, which accelerates your grammar, pronunciation, and sentence formation skills when you start speaking.

What to expect

You can expect a fun, active, engaging environment in a small group of 2-5 people, so everyone gets plenty of focused practice time. You’ll also leave each day with personalized recordings from your session, so you can review the material any time to strengthen your listening skills. 

What you’ll gain

By the end of the course, you will have a well-tuned Saudi Arabic ear, the ability to identify the most important objects around you, and the confidence to begin speaking your own basic sentences. Level 1A is intended to be immediately followed by Level 1B.
