Come to Palestine if you're looking to learn Arabic

Marhaba, I'm Daniel from Connecticut in the USA. I'm pursuing a master's degree in Middle Eastern Studies, and I was always curious about Palestine, especially Hebron. I wanted to understand its politics and learn Arabic.

Despite what you might hear about Palestine and Hebron, it's actually a really safe place. Perfect for studying the Levantine Dialect. I'd been to Palestine before and loved the friendly people and beautiful cities, so I decided to come back for a longer stay.

My time at the Palestinian Centre was incredible, despite the ongoing conflict in Gaza. I enrolled in the Intensive Arabic Course for just two weeks, guided by my amazing teacher, Ms.Duaa. Without a doubt, she was a highly skilled language instructor, and I observed significant improvements in my language skills. The Centre organizes fantastic activities every day, not only aiding in language development but also offering a closer look into life in Hebron, Palestinian-Israeli relations, and the challenges of living under occupation.

I think Go Palestine offer an amazing experience. If you're into learning Arabic and want to explore Palestinian culture, politics, and history, this is the place to be!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Palestine is entirely different from the image people often have. It's a lovely place to be.
Pros
  • Very skilled teacher
  • Convenient schedule
  • Warm and welcoming Palestinian people (as always)

A great way to learn more about Human Rights situation in Palestine

This internship allowed me to gain a first-hand experience in the field of Human Rights and I was able to learn a lot about the life in Palestine. If you want to discover Palestine, understand the ongoing conflict, learn about how regular people and organisations deal with different difficulties you should definitely come to volunteer with GoPalestine, because their offer is very interesting and the staff is super nice and helpful. The center is also very conveniently located, on the main street in the city center. The apartment I was staying at was not even 10 minutes away, which was also very convenient!

Definitely the best option to learn Arabic and discover the country!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Be open minded, receptive of the new culture surrounding you and you'll learn and a lot and have an amazing time.
Pros
  • Very helpful staff
  • Hebron is a city with a rich history and probably the best place to learn about the occupation
  • The schedule is full of interesting activities
Cons
  • The only disadvantage is that at some point it ends. It's an amazing experience.

Great experience

I had a great experience studying Arabic here. Go Study Arabic was very communicative and helpful throughout the entire process including helping me several times with documentation that I needed to share with my university.
Dua'a is an amazing teacher! She made learning fun and I felt like she really cared about me as a person as well as a student. She adapted the lessons to what I was most excited about and what was most relevant to meeting my language goals. Thank you so much Dua'a and Go Study Arabic!

Arabi Fi Falastine - I'm very thankful for the experience

My time in Hebron was a really special experience that I am so thankful for. I took a super intensive Arabic course at Go Study Arabic in Palestine - Go Palestine, and it was a decision that I will always treasure. During the month I was there, I had the chance to explore Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Jaffa, Ramallah, and, of course, Hebron itself.

I had a great teacher named Duaa who helped me a lot. She gave me lessons tailored to my needs to help me get better at speaking, listening, and writing in Arabic. With her help, I made a lot of progress in a short time and now I feel more confident in my language skills. Duaa was an amazing teacher, and I'm really grateful for her support and expertise.

While I was in Palestine, I was warmly welcomed to different social events like weddings, parties, and small gatherings for tea or coffee. These experiences allowed me to make deep connections with local Palestinians and other international participants at the center. I know the friendships I made will last a lifetime.

Aside from the social aspects, I also visited various organizations, museums, and refugee camps, which gave me a better understanding of the occupation and what life is like for Palestinians. These experiences not only opened my eyes to new perspectives but also helped me improve my Arabic skills.

It's hard to put into words how much this journey in Palestine meant to me. I am incredibly grateful for the chance to be fully immersed in Palestinian culture, make meaningful connections, and learn so much about the region. Choosing to have this experience was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Pros
  • Brilliant Instructor
  • Friendly Staff
  • Chance to visit Refugees Camps

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!

Pros
  • Personalized, one-on-one instruction
  • Immersive cultural experiences
  • Effective language learning

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.

Pros
  • Better your Arabic skills
  • Meet new people
  • Learn about Palestinian culture, history, struggles

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!
