NaTakallam's Arabic curriculum for beginners is based on the integrated Arabic teaching curriculum, 'Arabiyyat al-Naas,' developed by Munther Younes, the Head of the Arabic department at Cornell University. This curriculum differs from other Arabic language programs by integrating colloquial Arabic with Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) in a way that reflects the use of the language by native speakers.
NaTakallam has partnered with Dr. Younes' Institute for Integrated Arabic to train some of our conversation partners in delivering this unique, real-life oriented teaching approach. Students will engage in 25, one-on-one, hour-long sessions covering Units 1-3 in 'Arabiyyat al-Naas.'
The program costs $750 for the entire 25 one-on-one sessions. PLEASE NOTE- the hours must be used within 4 months of purchase date and introductory email to your instructor. Thank you for your understanding.
