Arabic in CalgaryStart Learning
Calgary’s culture is as varied as its population, expressing itself throughout the city via its art, food, fashion, dance, film, festivals, celebrations, literary programs, powwows and more. There are over 120 languages spoken in the city, with Arabic one of the most widely spoken. The 2011 census reports almost 26,000 people of Arab origin living in the city and most of them come from Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt and Kuwait. While each of these nations have unique and fascinating cultures, what these people share is the Arabic language, or Modern Standard Arabic, to be specific. Learn how to communicate with them on a whole new level and take advantage of every opportunity the city has to offer to bilingual speakers by starting a language course! Contact Language Trainers today to make it happen.
Why Study Arabic in Calgary
Learn Arabic for Studies: Those who would like to pursue higher education in Arabic will find plenty of options to do so in Calgary. For example, the University of Calgary on University Drive offers a bachelor’s program with a major in Arabic, where you will not only learn more about the language but also about the arts and culture of the Arab peoples. For example, you will read comparative studies of Muslim civilizations from Africa, the Arab and Persian world, Asia, and the West, focusing on the developments of the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Plus, you will be able to explore aspects of the Arabic language through classical and modern sources. The university only asks for prospective students to have a basic understanding of Arabic, so contact us at Language Trainers and we will adapt our Exam Preparation course to help you achieve the accreditation you will require to enrol.
Learn Arabic for Culture: But all work and no play will make Jack a dull boy, so be sure to use your new Arabic skills to enjoy the many Arab culture experiences around Halifax. For example, you can sharpen your listening skills by listening to Calgary Arabia, a weekly, 2-hour radio show that showcases Arab art and cultural heritage in the city. It airs live interviews with prominent figures from all walks of life in Calgary, Canada, and the world, while discussing local Canadian and Albertan social, economic and political affairs. And you can also take part in the Calgary Arab Film Nights Festival, organized by the Calgary Arab Arts and Culture Society on 1 Street. This institution contributes to Calgary’s cultural scene by promoting Arab cinema, comedy and visual art that showcase the rich history and diversity of Arab culture.
Learn Arabic for Social: You will also be able to meet new people using your Arabic language skills around Calgary. For example, you can attend the annual Calgary Arab Festival, a two-day event held every July at Olympic Plaza. This is a free, family-friendly event that encourages locals to indulge in Arabian traditions, such as folk dance, traditional music, food, customs, arts, and much more. Why not go and practise your language skills by speaking to the attendees in Arabic? You can also join the Arab Calgary Facebook Group, a non-political, non-religious page that was founded to connect Arabs living in Calgary. The idea is to get together to communicate and exchange views and ideas using Arabic. They welcome all language levels and abilities, so don’t hesitate to join them, even if you are just starting your Arabic lessons with us at Language Trainers.
