Arabic Language Courses, London & Online

The Anglo-Omani runs Arabic Language Courses in our Sackville Street offices and online (due to the current situation, all classes are online). We have quickly become one of London's biggest Arabic Language schools, offering classes for a variety of abilities from total beginner to confident conversationalist. 

Our courses cover both written and spoken Arabic and focus on Modern Standard Arabic, although our teachers have good knowledge of various dialects so (depending on students' interests) explain different dialectic translations. Courses run for 10 weeks and consists of 2 hour classes. Any material (courses roughly follow the Gateway to Arabic books) required for the course will be provided via email PDF. However, we recommend students purchase the Gateway to Arabic books if they are able to. There is no requirement for how much work students do between lessons, but we highly recommend putting some time aside each week to revise vocabulary, spelling and grammar etc. The more work you put into your studies, the more you'll get out of the course. 

Our Winter Term starts w/c 19th January and ends 26th March. All class times refer to UK time.

We run daytime and evening courses online for the following levels:
