Sijal Institute

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

  • Intensive ten-week program equivalent to one full academic year; split into two five-week sessions

  • Immersive online experience rich with cultural activities, film screenings and lectures

  • Open to all qualified students (traditional and non-traditional)

  • Meets FLAS fellowship requirements

The Sijal Institute for Arabic Language and Culture offers students the opportunity to study for the summer in a rich online immersive environment, with lessons held by our experienced teachers in online classrooms. The summer program moves beyond pure delivery of language tuition by fully incorporating Arab cultures into the curriculum with lectures, film screenings, cultural activities and language partnerships. Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 programming will be offered entirely online!

Furthermore, our communicative, proficiency-based curriculum integrates Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and Levantine dialect to get students interacting as native speakers do, even from the earliest proficiency levels. Based on the methodology of the popular Al-Kitaab textbook series, students systematically practice all four linguistic skills in their core classes and can seamlessly transition from our coursework to that of their home institutions.
