Intensive course – September 2021
Ifpo organizes two intensive sessions for September: one on site in Beirut (Lebanon) and one online
The courses are given in Arabic by Lebanese, Jordanian and Syrian teachers who are native speakers and have a solid experience of teaching Arabic as a foreign language.
Students are placed according to their level in small groups (6 to 10 persons) and receive 14 hours of classes per week for 4 weeks. This offer includes 4 hours of individual classes a week, and 10 hours of collective classes. On August 26 and 27, the students who have been accepted pass an oral exam in MSA and dialect.
Following the oral placement tests, the students are divided into three levels, each corresponding to one of the following three profiles:
- Profile 1 = advanced: between 400 and 600 hours of Arabic (MSA) at least (from 3 years of Arabic)
- Profile 2 = intermediate: between 250 and 400 hours of Arabic (MSA) (+/- 2 years of Arabic)
- Profile 3 = post beginner: between 150 and 250 hours of Arabic (+/- 1 year of Arabic/MSA)
Ifpo does not offer courses to beginners in literal Arabic (MSA).
