Upcoming Classes

Arabic: For Beginners (Accelerated)

Our accelerated programs are four- or eight-week courses equivalent to 16, 20 or 40 weeks of study at Pacific Arabic.

Arabic: For Beginners

If you’ve never studied Arabic before, this class is for you. You’ll get a solid introduction to this fascinating language.

Arabic: First Year

In the first year of Arabic study you’ll learn the fundamental structures of the language and develop a useful working vocabulary.

Arabic: Intermediate & Advanced

In the second and third year of Arabic study you’ll learn advanced grammar and vocabulary while enjoying authentic readings and video from across the Arabic-speaking world.

Arabic: Dialects

Spoken Arabic dialects vary greatly from region to region, but are much simpler to learn than the formal written language, Modern Standard Arabic (MSA).

Farsi

Farsi, or Persian, is spoken mainly in Iran and written in a modified Arabic script.

 

What Our Students Say

Before coming to Pacific Arabic, I'd studied Arabic in four different schools, using four different books, in two different states, under six different teachers, and I had never found a course that I thought was thoughtfully organized and well taught until Pacific Arabic.
Eric Mead
I chose Pacific Arabic because of its practical location and hours, but have stayed because of the quality of the instruction. Students are constantly engaged in conversation by the instructors, allowing them to apply grammar points immediately to real­-life sentences and situations.
Elsa Figueroa
The instructors are simply amazing­—they offer university­-caliber education at a pace that I could stick to while working full time AND still be able to progress at a steady clip. Plus you can't beat the convenience of the location!
