The Jordanian national anthem has only four lines.

Ahlan wa-sahlan! Originating in Saudi Arabia in pre-Islamic times, Arabic spread rapidly across the Middle East. Rewardingly guttural, the language today has many regional dialects, and numbers vary from two hundred and fifty to four hundred million native speakers. Arabic is spoken in more than twenty-six countries worldwide, from Morocco to Iraq and as far south as Somalia and the Sudan.

Arabic teacher @ #BHLingual
for 5 years

The best part about living in Los Angeles is...

Diversity and the multicultural environment. Also, the weather promotes productivity and creativity.

Recommend a place to visit where Arabic is the native language, and tell us why you like it.

I highly recommend a visit to Egypt, where past and present co-exist. A Nile cruise is a fabulous way to sail through history and the land of pharaohs in modern comfort. Eating Falafel and Mologhia, drinking water from the Nile, is a cultural experience.

What Arabic film or musical artist do you recommend students watch or listen to?

I recommend Elias Rahbani as a musician and Abd-El Halim Hafiz as a phenomenal singer.

What most surprises your students about Arabic?

Arabic is written from right to left and only in cursive.

What one thing would you like your students to know about you?

I have 3 degrees: a medical doctor's degree from Egypt, a Master's degree in educational counseling, and additional teaching credentials.

The best part about living in Los Angeles is...

There are so many different places—from malls to neighborhood stores and restaurants—to enjoy different cultures.

Recommend a place to visit where Arabic is the native language, and tell us why you like it.

I'd definitely recommend visiting Jordan, where you can enjoy seeing Petra, a city carved in rock, and Wadi Rum; as well as the lowest point in the world (the Dead Sea).

What Arabic film or musical artist do you recommend students watch or listen to?

Fairouz and Nancy Ajram are good singers. I shouldn't forget the greatest Arabic singer, Um Kolthum, who sang famous Arabic and Persian poems. Adel Imam is one of the most popular artists, with strong charisma and the talent to play characters which reflect the culture and political situation.

What most surprises your students about Arabic?

Arabic is a very rich language. It has 28 letters, where by six letters connect from the right with the others, and not to each other. 22 of the letters are 'two-way connectors.' Each letter has 4 shapes, depending on its position in the word, and different sounds. By learning Arabic, you'll see into a different world, understand different cultures, and see the world from different viewpoint.

What one thing would you like your students to know about you?

I'm a social person who loves her Arabic language and enjoys teaching it. I have a Ph.D in Business Administration and am a professor at Westcliff University – Irvine. I'm from Jordan, with Palestinian roots.

Private Arabic Classes

We offer semi-private Arabic classes or private Arabic lessons for any level of Arabic.

Some students prefer private lessons instead of a scheduled class, or occasionally take private classes to augment their existing, scheduled group course.

Private classes are more flexible than Group classes. They are tailored to specific learning and scheduling needs. They can be useful if a student's language knowledge is uneven, if a more intensified study program is needed, or if privacy is a concern.

With our large staff of native speakers, we can schedule private lessons in most languages.

Private lessons are available in packages of eight, 80-minute sessions; or, if you are enrolled in a group class, your private lesson can be scheduled individually.

Please write us or call (323) 651-5000 to schedule your private class.

Why Learn Arabic?

Learn [LANGUAGE] in Los Angeles

The Arab region, with its rapidly growing population and GDP of $600 billion annually, provides a huge export market for goods and services. It has much to offer the world market and economy. In order to negotiate and conduct trade effectively the language and culture of the people must be understood.

Many western nations consider Arabic a language of strategic importance. Yet there is a shortage of employees in the West who are versed in the Arabic language and culture. Those who study Arabic can often find a career in journalism, business and industry, education, finance and banking, and the foreign service and intelligence.

Take the time to learn Arabic and you'll be introduced to fascinating people and cultures the world over. Arab hospitality is truly unique, particularly when you make the effort to speak the language!

Mastering a new language can change your life.

The Beverly Hills Lingual Institute invites you to learn Arabic at our award-winning school, where we are proud to offer Arabic and more than 35 other languages.

Our language school hires and retains exceptional Arabic teachers, eager to share their knowledge and love for their native land and the Arabic language.

Online Language Classes at the Beverly Hills Lingual Institute

The Beverly Hills Lingual Institute offers the most comprehensive selection of language classes you'll find in the Los Angeles area.

Classes are held in live online sessions, where students interact with their teacher and peers in real-time.

Classes are held at our facility located at 8383 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 800 in Beverly Hills, California.

We all speak one.
Some of us speak several.
A few of us know dozens.

Languages are a staple of everyday life, a necessity for getting by in the world and communicating with each other. They can help you get jobs, help you enjoy another country and culture—and even get you out of trouble.

Learning a new language can change your life.

Knowing how to say at least a few words in another language will break the ice at any business meeting, and will certainly make your vacation more pleasant.

You may also want to get in touch with your heritage by learning some of the language that your ancestors spoke. Language is a particularly good bridge in this regard, as it can often be a guide to the ways in which different cultures express not only ideas, but emotions. By exposing you to every aspect of the human condition, language allows you to study the past, understand the present, and ponder the future.

Choose a language and begin to enjoy the extraordinary benefits of being bilingual or multilingual.

Alternative Programs

The majority of our scheduled language classes are designed for adult students who want to learn another language. We also offer the following alternative programs.

English · Accent Reduction

Classes evaluate the student's problem areas and focus on exercises designed to target and remedy those areas. Our Accent Reduction course focuses on pronunciation, stress, enunciation, diction, tonality, musicality, syntax, and articulation, through vowel and consonant exercises, work chants, tongue twisters, and readings. Individual attention is given to each student's area of difficulty.

English · Native Speaker

English - Native Speaker Classes

These classes are for those who grew up speaking English but want to improve and refine their English. Designed to give you the critical edge in English communication, they target grammar, spelling, and pronunciation.

Little Linguals

Little Linguals Classes

Designed for children aged 6 - 11, our "Little Lingual" classes meet once a week during the afternoon for one hour. Class content includes Alphabet, Songs, Games, Practical Words and Phrases, and Basic Dialogue. Children aged 12 and above can join our regularly scheduled adult classes.

These exciting classes are geared to get an early start on language learning while helping children enjoy and appreciate a different culture. This is the best time for them to learn a foreign language. The younger the learner, the better they are at mimicking new sounds and adopting pronunciation. The brain is open to new sounds and patterns in preadolescence.

Young children have the luxury of taking in a new language naturally. A child's brain is like a sponge, soaking up new vocabulary, sentence structure, words stress, pronunciation, and everything that makes up language quickly, easily—and, most importantly, without explicit grammatical instruction.

When you're an adult, learning a new language takes a bit more effort!

Little Linguals Classes

Young children have time to learn through play-like activities. Language lessons can be informal. Children's minds are not yet cluttered with facts to be stored and tested. Before children become self-conscious, they can try out their newly acquired languages without fear of embarrassment.

Children who grow up learning about languages develop empathy for others and a curiosity for different cultures and ideas. They're better prepared to take their place in a global society. In later years, career opportunities increase for those with additional languages to offer.

Studies by Harvard University confirm that learning additional languages increases critical thinking skills, creativity and flexibility of the mind in young children. Moreover, pupils who learn a foreign language outscore their non-foreign-language-learning peers in standardized verbal and math tests, indicating that learning additional language is a cognitive—and not just linguistic—activity. The brain, like any muscle, functions better with exercise. Learning a language involves memorizing rules and vocabulary, which helps strengthen that mental muscle.

Travel Classes

Travel Classes

Our Travel Classes are designed for those who are planning a trip and want to get more out of their travel experience. These classes are held twice a week for one month. They are language classes focused on travel conversation, pronunciation, and culture.
