Arabic Classes, London & Online

The British Omani Society runs Arabic Classes in our Sackville Street offices and online. Our classes, which are designed for a variety of abilities, from total beginner to confident conversationalist, have won high plaudits from participants.

Our courses cover both written and spoken Arabic and focus on Modern Standard Arabic, although our teachers have good knowledge of various dialects, and can therefore explain different dialectic translations, depending on students’ interests.

Courses run for 10 weeks and consist of 2 hour classes. Any material (courses roughly follow the Gateway to Arabic books) required for the course will be provided via email PDF. However, we recommend students purchase the Gateway to Arabic books if they are able to. There is no requirement for how much work students do between lessons, but we highly recommend putting some time aside each week to revise vocabulary, spelling and grammar etc. The more work you put into your studies, the more you'll get out of the course. 

Our next term starts w/c 25th September 2023. All classes are currently run on Zoom.

Our courses are open to all and cost £200 for each 10-week course. If you are interested in joining our classes, please email us at
