WHY TAKE ARABIC CLASSES AT INSTITUT NEO?

Arabic is spoken by some 350 million people in the world; it is the national language in 23 countries of the Arab League and one of the six official languages at the United Nations. Arabic is a language of culture, trade, exchanges, and science, which is why learning Arabic offers a real advantage.

Arabic was and still is the vehicle of rich and fertile lines of thought in literature, philosophy and science – the heritage of the great civilisations of the Middle East was taken over and developed in Arabic. Hence, Arabic allows for wide cultural openness both from a geographical and a historical point of view.

The Arab world also has a very prominent strategic position in the world’s economy and is the world leader in oil and gas reserves. Mastering Arabic through language courses is consequently an asset for international trade, diplomacy and tourism.

Furthermore, although there are numerous Arabic dialects, literal Arabic is common to all Arab countries. It’s the main language in writing, but it is also widely spoken, especially in the media, in speeches, and everything related to official communications.

The Arabic language classes we offer in Geneva are flexible and aim for a rapid improvement in your communicative skills.

Our teachers will plan your Arabic courses according to your objectives and your needs.
