Full-time Level 1 Summer Intensive (in person in Camden Town, London)



The original Ibn Jabal three week summer intensive programme is certainly not for the faint-hearted. It is arguably the most intensive Arabic course in the world. In just three weeks this course will cover the equivalent of the first year of an Arabic language degree at most British universities. Students will be expected study for at least ten hours every day. 

By the end of a Level 1 course, students should: 

  • Be able read a classical text like the Qur’an and understand up to 70% of it. 

  • Have a good understanding of all the common areas of Arabic grammar. 

  • Be capable of reading, writing, and speaking using up to a thousand individual Arabic words. 

  • Be capable of basic conversation in common situations. 

  • Be familiar with the ten forms of the Arabic verb and be capable of using a traditional Arabic dictionary by identifying the trilateral or quadrilateral roots of Arabic words.

  • Have an insight and appreciation for English grammatical concepts.

What’s included:

  • Four 3.5 hours classes per week

  • Digital course materials

  • weekly one-to-one sessions with the instructor to review completed homework

  • A certificate of completion (subject to completing 80% of homework and sitting final exam)

For this course, students are expected to:

  • attend all weekly classes

  • dedicate at least 10 hours studying every day during the course. 



  • Although it is possible to do this course as a complete beginner to Arabic, this course is suited best for students who are familiar with the Arabic script.
