SIASP is an immersive language program offered in the summer for students wanting to get as much Arabic language learning as possible in a short amount of time. It is ideal for those individuals studying in other academic programs during the year.
The program includes six hours of class daily from Monday – Friday, offering students the opportunity to complete TWO levels in either Formal Arabic (MSA) or Levantine (Urban) Arabic. Students can practice their Arabic in daily life, immerse themselves in Middle Eastern culture and learn about Lebanon’s history, food, and society.
The program also includes field trips, special cultural activities, film nights, and lectures on Middle Eastern history and politics. This is an exciting opportunity to see Lebanon, meet fellow Arabic students, and acquire greater proficiency in Arabic. Whether you are a complete beginner and/or a student that has already studied some Arabic, SIASP will help you to improve as quickly as possible.
