The Arabic School for Overseas
Students & Diplomats

We work Monday through Friday

From 8:00 to 13:00

Arabic School for Foreign Students and Diplomats
Specialization: Spoken Arabic, the Levantine Dialect


We strongly believe that students who speak the language first can approach fuṣḥa easily.

We also encourage universities to send classes to Bethlehem University to get strong basis on spoken Arabic

Our methodology for teaching the Levantine Dialect for foreign students is used in different universities in all over the world. The methodology was translated into different languages, among them English, German and French. The Italian translation is in preparation.

- Spoken Arabic for Foreigners I, II + dictionary
- Lehrbuch des Palästinensisch-Arabischen I, II
- Cours d’Arabe Parle Palestinian I, II

We realized that while living in Bethlehem or Jerusalem our non-intensive courses do not give the desired results. Therefore, we change our courses starting from 2018 and we will offer only intensive courses. The following levels will be offered each month during the year:
-Spoken Arabic Level I
-Spoken Arabic Level II
-Spoken Arabic Level III
-Spoken Arabic Level  IV and Media Arabic will be offered upon request.

- Students can register for one month or more.
- Students meet 4 hours per day, 4 days per week for 4 weeks.

- Fees: We trust students to choose the right category among the following:
 1- Fees paid by an organization is $900.
 2- Fees paid privately $850
 3- Students affiliated with FAU- Erlangen,  LMU-Munich, Heidelberg, FU-Berlin, and Leipzig,  our partners in the Palestinian German Institute pays $750.
- Study materials are not included in the fees.
