The Qasid Program is an intensive, multi-term course tailored for non- native speakers and heritage learners wishing to excel in Arabic. It is designed with busy professionals and students in mind, aiming to teach the equivalent of a year’s worth of university - level Arabic in just under three months in each of our winter, spring, and fall quarters, and in just nine weeks during our Summer Intensive.
Five core levels of instruction — as well as supplementary and advanced studies modules — are offered, focusing on the specific needs of beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. The "Classic Four" skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking are taught systematically in classrooms that rarely exceed eight students, giving each individual a considerable amount of attention.
Instructors are widely regarded as exceptional, and the curriculum blends a tried-and-true program with innovative techniques to insure an optimal learning experience for each student.
