If you’ve newly arrived in Oman and are still marveling at the way the local populace speak to communicate things that are not meant for your ears, you probably are wondering how to learn Arabic in Oman as a sure way of being able to communicate with locals with greater ease.

Arabic is said to be the fifth most widely spoken language with over 300 million native speakers and a rich literary and cultural heritage. And the good news is, that you, too, can learn to speak in Arabic even if you do not have any knowledge about it at all.

There are many institutes in Oman which regularly conduct Arabic classes to enable interested individuals to explore the language and the culture in a fulfilling manner.

Foundation courses

Foundation courses in Arabic are also provided in different levels for complete beginners and the focus is on learning conversational skills across a variety of everyday situations and building up a basic vocabulary. One learns greetings, simple conversations, ways for finding oneself around town in different situations as well as a good working knowledge of the Arabic script.’

Some institutes concentrate on ‘Omani Arabic and the classes are dedicated for teaching the Omani dialect and culture. The classes are interactive sessions and equip the learner with skills for listening, understanding and speaking Arabic the way the Omanis do in varied situations. Classes are conducted as part-time evening programmes and directed at individual learners as well as corporate batches.
