Arabic in Dublin

Ireland and the Arab Peninsula have long-standing ties thousands of years old. Scientific findings conclude that the ancestors of prehistoric Irishmen hailed from near contemporary Levant who migrated across the southern Mediterranean, making the modern-day Irish genetic cousins of Arabs. It would appear little has changed as this migration still endures and, according to the 2016 Irish census, there are more than 60,000 Arabic speakers living in Ireland, almost 40% of whom reside in Dublin. But this migration exists in reverse as well, as the number of Irish expats living in Dubai and Abu Dhabi amounts to over 10,000 people. So, whether you are planning to move to the Arabian Peninsula or would like to connect with the Arab community living in Dublin, learning Arabic is a useful skill. Just contact us at Language Trainers and we will prepare a personalised course suitable to your specific needs!

Sign up for our online lessons today in Dublin! Schedule your lessons whenever you want them, so you can always find time to study, regardless of your timetable or location. You don’t even have to leave home to meet your teacher!

Why Study Arabic in Dublin

For Work: Learning Arabic will help you broaden your professional horizons, especially now that business relations between the Arabian Peninsula and Ireland are thriving. According to Business Insider in 2017, around 450 Irish companies export regularly to the Middle East, 150 of which have a permanent presence there. Irish firms are selling everything from IT services to agri-tech and food production solutions. So, if you are working in any of those fields, signing up for an Arabic course with Language Trainers can give your career a boost by opening you up to new and exciting opportunities at home and abroad. And if you are looking to connect with fellow entrepreneurs, you should not miss the annual Arab-Irish Business Forum, a convention attended by speakers from the Middle East and Persian Gulf. Why not try to impress them with your Arabic and build long-lasting business relations which may benefit you in the future?

For Culture: The Arab culture is very much alive in Dublin, too. For example, you can visit one of the many Hookah bars around the city and enjoy the night like a true Arabian. One of the most popular bars is VIP Sisha Lounge on Porters Road, where you can sit on pillows on the ground around the hookah pipe with friends and enjoy an exotic experience that will transport you to Arabia. And after taking a reasonable number of lessons with us, you can peruse the Arab version of Dublin’s web page, where you will discover news and articles relevant to the community. Put your reading skills into practice and keep yourself posted about important and exciting events in the city!

For Social: Those looking to use their skills to meet people with a similar interest and passion for Arabic can join Habibi, an online meeting place for Irish Arabs. Whether you are looking for Irish-Arabs worldwide or to connect with those in your local community, Habibi will help you! Get in touch with native Arabic speakers and improve your skills with a new friend! You can also take part in the events organised by the Arabic Culture Dublin Meetup, a hub for Irish nationals and internationals to meet and enjoy Arabic-related gatherings to enjoy arts & cultural events, food, discussion and more. Take advantage of this opportunity to meet new people while putting your language skills to use in a relaxed, friendly environment.
