Community Arabic Program


Community Arabic Program

 

The Community Arabic Program aims to introduce expat community members to the rich language and culture of Saudi Arabia and teach participants to understand and speak the colloquial Arabic of the Hejaz region, as well as read and write the Arabic language.

The program aims to build a bridge between the ex-pats at KAUST and the Saudi locals. It enables them to communicate in restaurants, taxis, at the airport, and on many other occasions in their day-to-day lives.

Our CAP teaching methods are based on interaction, roleplaying, and group discussions that make learning fun and the study material easier to grasp.
Classes are available during the day as well as in the evening time to accommodate both working and non-working community members.
