Why Should You Study Arabic in Palestine in summer 2018: Learning a new language can be as daunting as it is rewarding. It can open up a wealth of new possibilities and potential experiences. You can immerse yourself in new cultures and peoples in new and profound ways. But online and mobile applications can often only offer so much as rudimentary grammar and basic words and phrases. Professional classes can offer a greater depth but are still limited in your ability to practice and use your new language skills.
Studying Arabic in Palestine in summer 2018 with the Excellence Centre will not just provide you with the opportunity to learn a new language from trained and talented teachers but will also provide you with endless opportunities to use your new knowledge.
Day to day, you will have endless opportunities to use your skills and teachings in practical ways. Language theory can only achieve so much. Practical experience is important to further hone and develop your skills and knowledge. Options to engage in basic conversation or rudimentary exchanges such as food or taxi transactions are abounding for anyone wishing to come Palestine to study. The people are all too willing to engage with internationals regardless of their knowledge of Arabic, and will happily provide helpful feedback and practical tips. Practical experience can help you hone your skills in line with how the language is actually used in a real-life environment, not based on the instructions of a textbook.
