Arabic course in Dubai

Study on an Arabic course in Dubai for an experience you’ll never forget! This is a truly dynamic city, where malls and bars bustle, and impossibly tall skyscrapers and luxury hotels seem to spring up overnight. Dubai is a paradise for shoppers, with shopping malls the size of small cities, as well as atmospheric ‘souks’ (bazaars), where you can use your Arabic language skills to negotiate a bargain! It’s also a great place to unwind. Bask on Jumeirah Beach, with the famous silhouette of the Burj al Arab hotel out to sea; take a camel ride amidst spectacular sand dunes; or enjoy a dinner cruise on a traditional ‘dhow’ (sailboat).

You’ll be able to sample a vast array of cuisines whilst you learn Arabic in Dubai, from Moroccan to Mexican, Turkish to Thai. Dubai offers everything you could imagine: great scuba diving, majestic mosques, dazzling nightclubs, superb golf courses and even an indoor ski resort!

    The course inluded learning the alphabet, which I did not expect. That was great! My host family was amazing! They made me feel at home and took me everywhere I wanted and more. I even got to go to a real Emirati wedding. I also visited some of the touristic sites, but my experience with this family was unique and so much better than what I hoped for! By the way, the food was great too.

    Dubai, the city of Gold!

    Well, now I know why they call it the city of gold! First of all, they have a famous street where you can only buy gold, gold and... gold, it’s called ironically the Gold Souk! Next to this, they have beautiful and astonishing architectures. You can visit the famous Hotel Burj Al Arab (sailing ship), the remarkable Hotel Atlantis which is build in the sea and the highest building in the world: Burj Dubai (which has opened on the 4th of January 2010). The first time I went to Dubai, I was blown away by the very hot climate, the various cultures and the experience with the high standard of living. It was all very beautiful and sensational. It is a whole different world where you step into, a world where all impossible things are possible. The hotels and shopping malls have amazing architectures! The malls are very large and the inside is even more beautiful. Most designs are made by architects from European and other parts of the world. It is a marvelous playground for them; they can be very creative and design the craziest things which are not possible in their own country Read more...
