In a few words

In the Arabic School, you’ll master not only vocabulary and syntax, but how to use the language to engage effectively with Arab culture. The focus will be on Modern Standard Arabic during your five daily classroom hours, with optional sessions offered in colloquial dialects such as Moroccan, Egyptian, and Syrian. Outside the classroom, you’ll select from a wide array of in-language cocurricular activities—including calligraphy, cooking, cinema, music, and the Qur’an—each designed to help you build new vocabulary while developing cultural fluency.

The Arabic School offers an MA degree in Arabic studies or Arabic language pedagogy (TAFL) as well as an 8-week immersion program for beginner to advanced students. Starting in Summer 2020, the Arabic School will be located at Bennington College in Bennington, Vermont.
