Arabic courses – anyone interested in developing a shared life among neighbors knows that this must include the ability to communicate. And there’s nothing like the ability to communicate in the language of your partners to this discussion, especially when the language contains such strong cultural elements, like Arabic. At one time we wanted to learn Arabic and couldn’t find a focused list like the one compiled by Shelly Aridor, a volunteer at the Shared Life website. So as a proactive person, I reached out to the Arabic teacher that was recommended to me and invited him to our home. I organized a few friends and the teacher brought along some people that were interested as well, and we started a course for learning Arabic in our living room, read all about it here. So that too is an option. However, since we are often asked where and how to learn Arabic, the answer is the list below.


It’s a random list of Arabic courses of various types, but it is a good starting point.

Please note, we haven’t personally checked out these courses and would love to get your recommendations, additions and notes. Awaiting your comments either below or through Contact Us.
