The Arabic language influenced the development of other regional languages, such as Turkish, Persian and Urdu. It is an official language in all Arab countries in addition to: Israel, Senegal, Mali, Chad, Eritrea, Senegal and is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. Arabic has 28 characters and it is written from right to left.
- Why to learn Arabic in Germany?
Germany is host to a high number of Syrian refugees fleeing the ongoing war. Since 2015, Germany has registered over 1 million asylum seekers within its borders. Given the influx, many Germans are now finding it helpful to learn to speak Arabic. This is especially true for those working in government, but also among the general population who are eager to understand Arabic culture and language and promote integration.
The Excellence Center in Europe offers Arabic courses in Germany to both local Germans and internationals. These courses teach either the Syrian or Palestinian dialects and are taught by qualified Arabic teachers who make learning the language an enjoyable experience. By attending our courses, you have the opportunity to learn in a classroom setting as well as have the chance to practice during daily interactions with the refugees who live in the city.
- Know more about other cultures including Arabic culture
What makes this experience unique is that it is not only about teaching or learning a new language, but also about diving into a new culture by interacting with local communities who, in turn, are also eager to learn about your culture.
Here in Halle, you will be able to meet refugees who come from countries like Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Albania, Cameroon, Somalia, Mali and others, and get to know more about their culture, how and why they fled to Germany, and how they have adapted to life in Germany.
The Excellence Center in Europe has a broad network among the refugee communities to help its students connect with them in meaningful ways. The Excellence Center organizes activities and cultural evenings intended to promote cultural exchange between local Germans and refugees and encourage rapprochement between people from different countries.
