Students interested in learning Modern Standard Arabic are welcome to enroll in the semester course of the International School. During the academic semesters (September – January and February – June), Modern Standard Arabic classes meet three days per week for two academic hours each morning. Instruction is offered at the beginning through advanced levels. Admission is conditional upon completing an online placement test to make sure the appropriate level is offered. 

As the Modern Standard Arabic classes are relatively small, each student receives a great deal of personal attention and has many opportunities to interact with fellow students and with the instructor.
