Arabic is the official language of more than 20 countries, and it is also widely spoken in Australia, only behind Mandarin and English. Learning Modern Standard Arabic in Canberra will open up doors when it comes to international affairs and global politics, and it is also useful to socialise with the more than 500 people who speak Arabic that live in the city. Why not get started with us at Language Trainers? We will design an Arabic course that adapts to your requirements, schedule and skills.

Why Study Arabic in Canberra

For Work: Those looking to broaden their professional horizons can visit the Australia Arab Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Brisbane Avenue, the most important association for trade and investment between the countries of the Arabian Peninsula and Australia. Established in 2002, this organisation helps Australian companies expand into the Middle East, and Arab companies invest in Canberra. You can also contact the Institute of Australia Middle East Business and Education (IAMBE) on National Circuit, established in 2014 to bridge the gap between Australia and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA region). This cross-cultural understanding includes holding events to facilitate networking opportunities and bringing important businesspeople from the Middle East to Canberra. After the events, you can try and impress these people with the Arabic you learn in your lessons!

For Culture & Tourism: If you are more interested in getting to know the culture of Arabic-speaking countries, you can attend some of the workshops organised by the the Institute of Australia Middle East Business & Education on National Circuit. For example, every year they host an Islamic Culture Workshop aimed at helping those who are about to travel to the Middle East or other Muslim countries. Another event you cannot miss if you are interested in the Arabic culture is the National Multicultural Festival, which offers cuisines and local delicacies from around the world, including Egypt, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia. Musical performances are also a highlight, featuring Saudi Arabian dancers and drummers who captivate the crowds outside the Middle Eastern stalls. After the event is over, why not approach them and practise your newly-acquired Arabic pronunciation?

Those who love to travel and would like to explore some amazing Arabic-speaking countries like Egypt or Morocco can do so by taking a flight with Emirates. Navigate the longest river in the world, discover the breath-taking pyramids, and visit the amazing Grand Egyptian Museum while putting your Arabic-speaking skills into play!

For Social and Food: Those who want to learn the language to connect with Arabic speakers in Canberra can join the Arabic Learners and Practitioners MeetUp group, which has more than 150 members, aimed at anyone interested in Arabic and the affairs of the Middle East in general. They welcome Arabic students of all levels. They usually meet to watch Lebanese and Syrian films and to celebrate the end of Ramadan (the Islamic fasting month) by enjoying delicious meals. If you want to taste the exquisite Lebanese and Moroccan cuisine with friends, you can visit the Saffron Restaurant on Kennedy St and order some tawook (chicken breast with olive oil and garlic marinade) or Shish Kebab. Another excellent place to have a traditional Middle Eastern dish is Mister Zee’s on Bunda St. Their menu is both in Arabic and in English, so going to this place can be an excellent opportunity to test how much vocabulary you have learned in your Arabic course.
