The programme

Before you take an Arabic course at Regina Coeli, you have an intake interview with a language trainer. During this conversation, you give us important input for your training: Who are you? What kinds of situations will you be using Arabic in? What do you want to be able to do by the time you have finished your course? How quickly do you want to achieve your goals? On the basis of this information, the language trainer will design a training programme for you which includes the specific content that is important to you.
 
The advantage of individual lessons is that you are able to fully focus on your goals, your lesson content can be fully adapted to you(r profession) and you can start from your current level of knowledge.
