Curriculum

We teach Fossha using the Georgetown University Press books "Al Kitaab".
For those who have no prior knowledge of Modern Standard Arabic or any Arab dialects, we like to start with what we call "Fossha Explorer". This is a 20 session module which will get you acquainted with the alphabet and other basic elements. For those who have an intermediate level of an Arab dialect, the Fossha Explorer class is only 10 sessions.
The other modules are made up of either 30 or 40 sessions (45 or 60 hours).
After each module there is a test.

Please check here to see our program for the coming year. However, classes can be scheduled upon demand and can start at anytime. Just email us at info@arabophon.com to schedule your classes.
