Arabic is the official language of the 22 countries which form the Arab League. It is the native language of over 200 million people residing in this geographical region, which stretches from Southwest Asia to Northwest Africa and known as the Arab World. Arabic is also known as a religious language. It is ranked among the top six of the world's major languages.
At King’s we teach Modern Standard Arabic which is used in books, newspapers, television and radio, and in conversation between educated Arabs from different countries.
Our teachers of Arabic are highly qualified and experienced native speakers from different parts of the Arab world. They use their extensive knowledge of Arabic language, literature and culture to inspire and encourage students to progress in their learning and develop a high level of competence in the language.
We also teach Arabic Levantine, which is a common dialect understood among many Arabic countries.
