Learning Arabic has never been so fun - thanks to Palestine!

Al Salam Alikum! Ana "أنا" Samantha :) I am from the USA. I had the incredible opportunity to participate in the intensive Arabic program, and it was truly a life-changing experience. This program is not a typical language course, it's an immersive, one-on-one program that takes place in the beautiful country of Palestine.

I had the pleasure of working with Nadine, my amazing teacher who provided personalized instruction and helped me build practical language skills in speaking, listening, and writing Arabic. With one-on-one instruction, I was able to make significant progress in a short amount of time and feel more confident in my abilities.

But the program wasn't just about language instruction – it also included unforgettable day trips to the refugee camp in Hebron and Bethlehem, giving me the chance to understand the Palestinian culture and society. I even had the chance to stay with a host family, which allowed me to truly immerse myself in the local culture and practice my language skills with the locals.

I recommend the Arabic intensive program to anyone looking for an immersive, memorable and unique experience. Not only will you build valuable Arabic language skills, but you'll make unforgettable memories. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity!

Study Shami Arabic in Palestine

I stayed in Hebron for one month with a Palestinian host family and completed the intensive Arabic course at Go Palestine. I cannot even begin to describe my time here in Palestine, and how happy I am that I chose this experience. During my stay, I have traveled to Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Jaffa, Ramallah, and of course, Hebron. I have been invited to and attended weddings, other parties, and simple dinner and tea/coffee invitations. I have met so many lifelong friends, both from Palestine and other internationals at the center. I’ve had the opportunity to learn more about the occupation and Palestinian daily life through visits to several organizations, museums and refugee camps and, along with massively improving my Arabic skills.

A wonderful experience in learning ِShami Arabic

I had a great opportunity to study Shami Arabic online with Go Palestine. Scheduling the classes with my lovely teacher has been easy and pleasant. All in all, I very much appreciate the teacher appointed to me, her knowledge and passion for the Arabic language, and all that she gave me. She labored on written materials just for me which is exceedingly generous.

I appreciate her teaching methods and am filling in some blanks and reinforcing basics I had acquired in Fus'ha, and now applied to Shami dialect.

Studying Shami Arabic with Go Palestine was such a joy. I am thankful for what they and their teachers provide!

Arabic online

My tutor Dua'a has been fantastic! Bearing in mind I am learning as a complete beginner (as well as learning online which presents is own set of challenges) my tuition has been fun, engaging, challenging and rewarding in equal measure.
My tutor has been exceptionally accommodating and supportive of my Arabic language journey. Arranging lessons was always easy and straightforward, and the content was always at just the right level to challenge me, but remain fun.
I look forward to having more lessons in the future.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If I could, I would come to Hebron in person! I hope to do so one day.

Strongly recommended

My name is Francesco and I am a Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Derby, England. I decided to come to Palestine and Hebron particularly because I am interested in the politics of the place as well as the Arabic language. I had also visited Palestine on previous occasions and I was impressed by its friendly people and beautiful cities. Despite the negative stereotypes you might have heard about Palestine and Hebron in particular, it is a really safe place and an ideal environment to study Levantine Dialect.
My experience at the Palestinian centre has been very positive. I have taken the Intensive Arabic Course and I have seen great improvements in my language skills. I have spent only 2 weeks in Palestine this summer, but I would like to return later on for a longer period. The centre organizes interesting activities every day, so the programmes are also a great chance to learn more about the people of Hebron, Palestinian-Israeli relations and life under occupation. As someone that works in education, I am convinced that Go Palestine and the Excellence Centre offer a great formative experience for those interested in the Arabic language and in the culture, politics and history of Palestine
