Saifi Institute for Arabic Language was created to fill a gap in Arabic instruction left by formal (Modern Standard) Arabic courses and curriculum: the need to understand and communicate in the spoken form of Arabic most commonly used by Arabs in their homes, businesses and amongst friends.
Saifi Institute's Urban Arabic curriculum is the culmination of this effort, based on the input of thousands of students and years of hard work. It focuses on the Arabic Lebanese (and Syrians, and Palestinians) use in daily life. Whether ordering food, negotiating prices, reading the news or hosting business meetings, our curriculum will teach you what you need to know to communicate effectively. Urban Arabic is a comprehensive and systematic approach to spoken Arabic for the absolute beginner to the Arab ex-patriot brushing up on their skills.
Urban Arabic uses both Arabic script (عربي) and the "Arabic chat alphabet" (3arabi).
