Arabic in London
Arabic is the official language of more than 20 countries, meaning it is an important language to learn for doing business in the Middle East. In 2017, the British Council rated Arabic as one of the top 5 languages Britons should learn, as it opens up doors when it comes to international affairs, global politics and business in general. Furthermore, it is spoken in the United Kingdom, and according to the 2011 census, 0.03% of all immigrants in London speak Arabic. Start studying Arabic today to take advantage of these opportunities to connect with the Arabic-speaking community that lives in London while broadening your professional horizons! Contact us today and we will design a course tailored to your needs and requirements!
Why Study Arabic in London
For Work: As the Middle East steadily becomes an important region of trade for the UK, knowledge of Arabic is an increasingly valuable asset for individuals and organisations. Considering the wealth and importance of the Arab markets, knowledge of their language will be crucial for tapping into their economic potential. An analysis conducted by search engine Adzuna in late 2016 found that those who spoke Arabic earn an average pay of £34,122 per year, making it the second-highest paying language behind German. But knowing Arabic is also an asset for Londoners at home, as there are many companies with offices in the capital that are always looking for bilingual speakers, such as Digital Streamers, Tableau or Arab Investments Ltd.
For Culture: If you would like to experience the Arab culture like a local without ever leaving London, you can attend the BBC Arabic Festival which celebrates Arab film and journalism through award-winning documentaries which focus on the Middle East. Similarly, other institutions bring together Arabic speakers and local Londoners through community events, such as the Arab British Centre at Gough Square, founded in 1977. Contemporary Arab culture is also widely celebrated via events such as the Shubbak Festival — ‘shubbak’ meaning ‘window’ in Arabic. As the biggest biennial festival of contemporary Arab culture and founded in 2011 by the Mayor of London himself, it features the most popular Arab films, music, theatre and dance performances. Beginning Arabic classes in London will enable you to interact with and understand this ancient, fascinating culture at a deeper, more meaningful level.
For Social and Travel: If you are interested in making friends who share your interest in Arabic, you can find some language exchange groups in the city. The most popular of them is the London Arabic Language Meetup, a group of people who get together to practise their Arabic and socialise with other speakers of the language. All backgrounds, ages and levels of proficiency are welcome! They usually get together at restaurants that sell traditional Arab food, such as Magic Falafel at Camden Market. Impress your new friends and order delicious dishes using your flawless Arabic pronunciation! And learning Arabic can also help you make the most out of your trips to any of the Arabic-speaking countries. With hundreds of flights connecting London to Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the UAE, an authentic Arabic environment is more accessible than you might think.
