Learning a language has become dramatically easier in the age of the internet. Aspiring polyglots no longer have to endure in-class instruction or travel abroad to immersion. So, perhaps you should make this the year you learn a new language. Which one will it be? Do yourself a favor and think beyond Romance or European and check out Moodlerooms’ E-Learn Magazine’s showcase of their Egyptian client Arab Academy, an online provider of Arabic language training, tutoring and certification.
Arab Academy boasts 90,000 learners from all over the world. While most of them join the virtual service with practical interests (e.g. they have professional or diplomatic assignments) the Academy embraces everyone interested in Arabic. For example, a common scenario is ethnic Arabs or Muslims looking to reconnect with the culture of their ancestors.
Arab Academy is very interested in being an affordable option, with most courses under USD 100. Further, the Academy knows that learning Arabic, especially for complete novices, can be daunting. As such, they also offer services to help students figure out their interests and goals, such as what style or dialect to master.
Finally, as with all modern LMS online learning offered through Moodle or Moodlerooms, the language learning experience is flexible, interactive, customizable and personal.
