In a few words

Saifi Institute teaches an average of 160 courses and welcomes over 2000 students from all over the world. It offers intensive and regular courses. All Saifi courses are taught over a period of five weeks, with eight terms running throughout the year. Students can take Formal Arabic lessons and learn the language of daily life (the Levantine dialect). The institute uses a new methodology called “Urban Arabic”, a systematic program that teaches students how to speak the way Arabs do, and how to read and write starting from the ground up through to highly educated levels.
