Course Overview


Online Arabic Levels 9&10 is a Pre-Intermediate Arabic course for students who have been studying the Arabic language for a while. This is an intensive Arabic course allowing you to take two Arabic levels in 6 weeks and progress more quickly. Online Arabic Levels 9&10 requires that you have previously studied Arabic Level 8 or a course of at least 96 class hours. If you’re unsure of your level, then take our quick Arabic language level test here, or check our level chart.


Our Online Arabic language classes take place via Zoom with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. The interactive lessons emulate our face-to-face classes, and via teacher screen-sharing, students are able to experience a live classroom environment. From vocabulary activities and covering grammar points on the white board, to listening exercises, file sharing and ‘break-out rooms’ to practise speaking with classmates, students can learn without leaving the comfort of their homes. Take a look at an example of one of our online classes in this video.
