What is the difference between Regular and Intensive Courses?

Depending on how quickly you want to progress your Arabic, Saifi Institute offers two kinds of courses, intensive and regular.  All Saifi courses are taught over a period of five weeks, with  eight terms running throughout the year.

 

Regular Courses

 

Regular courses consist of 30 hours teaching over five weeks, which is provided as two classes per week, three hours per class with a total of six hours per week (3 hours x 2 days = 6 hours per week x 5 weeks = total 30 hours).  Students must submit all homework assignments, and must take a mid-term and final term exam which they need to pass to progress to the next level.  In addition to attending classes, students are expected to study at least another two hours to complete the set homework, practice speaking and revise the material covered in each class.

 

The material taught on a regular course comprises half a level (e.g. beginner-low).  Regular courses are suitable for people already living and working in Lebanon who wish to study Arabic but do not have the time or the budget to study intensively.

 

Intensive Courses

 

Intensive courses consist of 75 hours teaching over five weeks, which is provided as five classes per week, three hours per class with a total of 15 hours per week (3 hours x 5 days = 15 hours per week x 5 weeks = total 75 hours).  Students must submit all homework assignments, and must take a mid-term and final term exam which they need to pass to progress to the next level.

 

Each intensive course covers all the material for an entire level (e.g. beginner).  In addition to attending classes, students are expected to study at least another two hours to complete the set homework, practice speaking and revise the material covered in class that day.  Intensive courses are suitable for students wishing to immerse themselves in Arabic for a period of time and progress as quickly as possible.
