The Levantine Institute of Tripoli offers high quality Arabic courses for foreigners, and Arab expats teaching both Levantine Dialect and Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). The Institute also provides volunteering opportunities to teach French, English and/or participate in different programs related to education in partnership with local NGOs in North Lebanon. The purpose is to live and learn the Arabic language as a whole, through its culture, history, anecdotes and actual connections and communication with the context and the humans who populate it. The LEVIT considers that classes only give you the keys to express yourself and a great deal of the work needs to be done outside of the classroom. This is why we chose Tripoli: it is a place where any student can easily practice what they learned during the courses. Through partnership with local NGOs and the Maan Center for children located within our premises, we strongly encourage students at the LEVIT to volunteer and interact as much as they can with the local community. Besides private lessons, the LEVIT offers two programs: vThe Levantine Immersion program takes the students from the day-to-day basic conversation and vocabulary to more complex subjects depending on progress. The teaching also focuses on using the origins of the words, the similarities and differences between the colloquial and the literal and an explanation of the grammar rules that structure the dialect. You will learn how to speak the Levantine and get background information on the formal shape of the Arabic language. Advanced classes tackle socio-political subjects of our region as well as culture, literature and media. vThe MSA (Modern Standard Arabic) program for all levels based on the same interactive philosophy. Starting with beginner classes, our MSA program brings the basic of Arabic literacy all the way to specialized subjects focusing on journalism, politics, international relations and sociology for the more advanced levels. To meet international standards of MSA, the LEVIT relies mostly on “Al-Kitaab” book.
