Why Study Arabic in New York City

Learn Arabic for Work & Travel: Learning Arabic will look great on your resumé, especially if you are planning to apply for a job in the fields of intelligence, foreign service, banking and finance. To find more information on how to connect with businesspeople from Arabian countries, you can get in touch with the Network of Arab American Professionals on 5th Ave. Formed in 2002, this organization works to connect, organize and empower the New York Arab-American community. Every year, it hosts National Conferences aimed at connecting Arabic-speaking entrepreneurs and New Yorkers. In case you want to attend the event, it is a good idea to polish your Arabic with Language Trainers in advance! And if you would like to travel to Arabian countries and practice your Arabic with native speakers, you can take a direct flight with Etihad and be in Abu Dhabi in a little over 13 hours!

Learn Arabic for Culture: New York City is also rich in Arab culture. If you want to learn more about it, you can attend the annual Arab American Bazaar, which started in 2006. This event on 5th Avenue features vendors, exotic food and music performances to celebrate Arab culture and community. Don’t miss this chance to check how much vocabulary you learn in your Arabic course! You can also follow the Moroccan Society of New York Facebook page. Founded in 2005, this organization aims at stimulating interest and participation in cultural activities. Their Facebook page features relevant events and news for the Moroccan community and it is completely in Arabic, so it can be a great instance for you to practice the reading skills you will acquire with Language Trainers. Visiting the Islamic Cultural Center on 3rd Ave will also give you insights into this ancient culture. You can join one of their tours in Arabic and get to know more about this religion and their ideology.

Learn Arabic for Social: If you would like to make friends with the same interest in the Arabic language, why not join the NYC International Arabic Language & Culture Club? It has more than 1200 members, and they get together every week to chat in Arabic and have fun by offering unique cultural experiences for their members. It is also possible to have traditional Lebanese food in NYC at many restaurants such as Ilili, a Lebanese place on Fifth Ave. They offer tasty options such as Kibbeh Naye Beirutieh or Moussaka, with menus completely written in Arabic and you’ll be able to read them after taking some lessons with us! And if you want to smoke Hookah like a true Arab, you can go to Babylon on East 34th Street. This bar opens its doors for those who want an exceptional experience with their hookah. They have a menu with 50 different types of flavors, all of them written in Modern Standard Arabic.
