Reopening CUE for the 2020-21 Academic Year

Modern Standard Arabic

Are you interested in learning a new language or enhancing your Arabic language skills? We offer four levels of Modern Standard Arabic language courses to introduce you to the 5th most commonly used language in the world and some amazing culture or to help you to increase your confidence in your current knowledge and understanding!

These courses are aimed at building and developing skills in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), the language read and understood by educated Arabs from the Arabian peninsula to Morocco, and are offered in response to the expanding Arabic Community in Canada and interested learners who need to learn the language for non-credit purposes.

Who should attend?

These courses are open to everyone.

New students who have a prior knowledge of the language are required to meet with instructional staff first for a language placement test to determine which level is more suitable for you.
