At a time when the need for cultural exchange, open-mindedness, and a willingness to understand societies, politics, and cultures other than our own is greater than ever, Dubai is becoming a popular choice for students who want to learn about the Middle East. One of the best ways to experience true cultural immersion, of course, is to learn a language where it’s widely spoken, so many students choose to study Arabic in Dubai.
It’s worth noting that the peculiarities and complexities of the Middle East are not restricted to or represented by a single country within its vast geographical area. As such, the experience of learning to speak Arabic can vary widely depending on where you do this. Whether it’s in a city where tradition influences everyday life such as Cairo, one where the society is very liberal such as Beirut, or one that has found a comfortable, if hard to digest at first, balance between the two, such as Dubai -– the Middle East is a dynamic region, and your experiences within it will likely be equally dynamic.
