Arabic Intermediate 1

This book-based course is aimed for those interested in learning Arabic at an intermediate level. We will be working towards level B1, so learners who access it should already be familiar with the alphabet and basic A2 vocabulary and grammar.

The course will be synchronous, meaning you will have mandatory live online classes with a teacher available to assist you with any questions or needs you may have in real-time.


Ninety-minute classes will be held every Monday and Wednesday from 19:30 to 21:00 CET from February 5th to May 24th, with breaks for Easter week, Seville’s Fair, and local holidays.
