Our program in Lebanese Arabic is divided into the following levels:

Level 1 (Elementary Low)
Level 2 (Elementary Medium)
Level 3 (Elementary High)
Level 4 (Intermediate Low)
Level 5 (Intermediate Medium)
Level 6 (Intermediate High)
Level 7 (Advanced)

These levels are indicated in the table above by the number in the “Level” column. For example, “1” indicates Level 1 (Elementary Low) and “3” indicates Level 3 (Elementary High). Each of the first six levels is generally covered in 68 to 72 classroom hours.

The letter following the number of the level indicates whether the class begins in the first (“A”) or second (“B”) half of the level. For example, “1 – B” indicates a class beginning in the second half of Level 1. No letter is shown in the case of classes which cover one whole level. For example, “2” indicates a class which covers the whole of Level 2.


The cost of a group class is calculated at the rate of $10 per class hour per person. The relevant textbook(s) and supplemental materials are provided free of charge to each student enrolling in a group class at a new level.

Registration Deadline

Registration is open until the class is full or until three business days prior to the beginning of classes, whichever comes first. Late registration is possible at our discretion, and subject to availability.
