Modern Standard Arabic Evening Classes

Arabic is one of the 5th most spoken languages in the world, as well as one of the official languages of the United Nations. 

Learning Arabic can be challenging but exciting, as you are introduced to the various dialects and forms of Arabic and get to understand more about this Semitic language.
