King Salman Global Academy for Arabic Language (KSGAAL) announced the initiation of the in-person study program for non-native speakers at its Abjad Center for Teaching Arabic Language in Riyadh on January 15th.

The program has brought together 150 students from 41 nations worldwide, aligning with Saudi Vision 2030’s Human Capacity Development Program. The educational program underscores the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s commitment to spreading the Arabic language and culture globally through providing quality education within an attractive cultural environment.

Each level spans two months and has 160 educational hours or 20 hours per week. It also features cultural enrichment activities.

The program features a curriculum with integrated learning modules that combine linguistic elements and skills based on the European framework for teaching foreign languages. By the end of the program, learners will be able to process concepts related to the Arabic language structures, vocabulary, sounds, and spelling, use Arabic language skills and elements in speaking and writing, and recognize the most important aspects of Arabic and Saudi culture. They will also be able to communicate with others in different situations and contexts.

Designed according to the best international standards for language teaching, the program supports KSGAAL’s goal to spread the Arabic language and Saudi Arabian culture globally by introducing learners to the Kingdom's heritage, customs, and traditions and helping them recognize its tourist and archaeological sites. Various enrichment activities and excursions are integrated to promote the learning process and provide learners with ample opportunities to explore Saudi culture.
