Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of online vs classroom learning?
Our online programs offer many benefits, the most important of which is FLEXIBILITY! You can choose when and how long you want to study, thus moving through the courses at your own pace. Our interactive exercises incorporate listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar components, producing effective language learning results. You can also seek and receive individual teacher attention whenever you are having difficulties.
How does your online program work? Do you have a demo I can see?
We can schedule a live demo session for you with one of our student advisers over Skype. This will allow you to experience our award-winning platform for yourself. To schedule your demo session, simply fill out the form on the right.
How do I write in Arabic if I don’t have an Arabic keyboard?
You do not need to have an Arabic keyboard to use our program. Our program provides you with a virtual Arabic keyboard to use. If you want to use your own keyboard, then you will need to buy stickers with the Arabic alphabet, or a keyboard that has Latin/Arabic displays on the keys. You can order these from Amazon.
What is the language of instruction, and to what extent does Arab Academy rely on language-to-language learning?
While explanations for our coursework are sometimes given in English, most instruction is delivered in Arabic, using pictures and animation to help you learn and understand the material, without relying on another language as a medium of transferring information.
Is a student’s progress monitored?
Our system is fully automated, scoring tests and online activities. Upon successful completion of each course, our system issues detailed progress reports, as well as a transcript or certificate of completion/language level.
Once I complete a course, will I get a certificate?
Yes, upon completion of one of our courses, you can order an electronic certificate for free at any time. Electronic certificates are issued within 4 working days. You can also order a hard-copy certificate which we will mail to the address of your choice. However, we do charge administrative fees for this in order to cover the cost of our mailing expenses.
