Arabic Immersion Course with Maha Yakoub

The course is designed to immerse students in the fundamentals of the Arabic language and culture. Your home and classroom during your stay in Nazareth will be the Fauzi Azar by Abraham Hostels – an old Arabic family mansion in the heart of Nazareth’s old city. Even outside of the classroom, you will be surrounded by the Arabic language day and night. This unforgettable experience will equip you with the language skills you require to initiate basic conversations. The course will focus on speaking and listening comprehension, understanding the foundations of Arabic Grammar, reading and writing. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to introduce yourself, order food in a restaurant, communicate in the market, and much more.

Arrive on Saturday at the Fauzi Azar, a centrally located 200 year old Arab mansion, and settle in with your fellow course participants. Each morning starts with a complimentary Arabic breakfast, before you head to the classroom to learn all the basics of spoken Arabic. You will also participate in activities to apply your knowledge, such as a cooking workshop and dinner, a tour of the market, and a music evening – all in Arabic, of course. In your spare time, you are free to cook together in our well-equipped guest kitchen, head out to discover Nazareth’s choice of restaurants, or choose to explore more of the area by yourself or on our guided tours. Whatever you might need, our helpful staff will happily assist you!

By attending this language course, you will receive a comprehensive package where combining the Arabic language and culture of the country is sure to be a unique highlight of your travel experience in Israel.
