Learn Arabic with our Expert Tutors in Birmingham

Get Started and Learn Arabic

Birmingham is a multicultural city that brings together people from all around the world. These inhabitants have all kinds of backgrounds and speak many different languages, including Arabic; according to the 2011 census, more than 1,500 people who speak Arabic at home live in the city. Arabic is the official language of over 20 countries with more than 375 million native speakers, according to the BBC. These people are largely concentrated in the Middle East, but there are minority groups of native speakers all throughout the world. Arabic is also an official language of the United Nations, the Organization of Islamic Conference and the African Union. So, sign up for a language course today and gain new insights into this ancient culture, boost your employability and connect with the Arab, Lebanese and Egyptian people living in Birmingham today.

Why Study Arabic in Birmingham

Learn Arabic for Work: Learning Arabic can also open up new business opportunities in the city. For example, many international companies are extending their business to the Arabian Peninsula, and for that, they need employees who can communicate with their new clients and/or partners. Businesses like Michael Page, Opta, Pertemps Network Group and even the University of Birmingham are always looking for fluent Arabic speakers to add to their teams, so take advantage of these opportunities and sign up for an Arabic course today! If you are actively job-seeking, you can also get in touch with the Arab Agency that partners with the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Harborne Road. Established in 2002, the Agency organises events in which investors, exporters and business people, in general, can connect. So, whether you are interested in finding new markets to sell your products, business leads or networking opportunities, there will be an event that suits you and your business.  Many of these events allow delegates to meet with government ministers, diplomats and senior business executives, as well. Why not attend these meetings and use all the Arabic you learn with us at Language Trainers to impress some people?

Learn Arabic for Social: Those who would like to connect with other Arabic speakers and put their skills to use outside of the classroom can join the Birmingham Arabic Meetup. This is a group for anyone who wishes to learn and practise Modern Standard Arabic, though other dialects are welcome, as are speakers of all levels. On occasions, they to go to Lebanese and Egyptian restaurants and even attend cinema screenings. The group also keeps an informal and flexible approach to what is covered in each session. Also, if you want to connect with the expat Lebanese community in the city, you should join the InterNations group for Lebanese in Birmingham. InterNations is the leading platform among expatriates and global minds in all countries around the world and, in this case, brings together people who would like to practise Arabic while learning more about the culture of the Lebanese people.

Learn Arabic for Culture: Birmingham offers a lot of possibilities to experience the different cultures of Arabic-speaking people. For example, you can go to a hookah bar, such as Sahara Shisha Lounge on Erskine Street. There, you will be able to smoke flavoured tobacco from a hookah pipe, a widespread practice in the Arab world. This bar, in particular, has more than 90 types of tobacco to try and will even lend you a glass pipe, if you need one. Choose your favourite flavour by reading the menu in Arabic after taking some lessons with us! Also, some organisations, like MARSM, offer immersion trips to historic cities, such as Nizwa. You will delve into the fascinating Arab culture by visiting historical sites, museums and exhibitions and, of course, by communicating with the locals. If you would like to take this type of trip, learning some Arabic with us at Language Trainers can ease the experience and help you communicate with everyone during the journey!
