Arabic in Edmonton

Edmonton is fast becoming one of Canada’s most linguistically diverse cities, with more people speaking foreign languages, such as Punjabi and Arabic, than ever before. In fact, the 2011 census data shows that more than 31% of the population speak a language other than English or French, and Arabic is one the fastest growing immigrant languages in Edmonton. Today, more than 23,000 Arabic speakers live in the city and the language is having such an important influence on the city and its surrounding regions that the Alberta government has been offering an Arabic language curriculum across the province since 2018. This is primarily to help people take advantage of the increasing number of job opportunities and cultural benefits that can be best enjoyed by speaking Arabic. So, don’t get left behind! Sign up for an Arabic course in Edmonton and gain insight into this fascinating culture while learning how to communicate with the Arab community living in the city. Contact us at Language Trainers and we will prepare a personalized course that suits your skills and schedule.


Why Study Arabic in Edmonton

Learn Arabic for Studies: If you are looking to study Arabic in higher education establishments, you will be glad to know there are some reputable institutions in the city that offer programs. For example, the University of Alberta has a Middle Eastern Studies BA, a course aimed at students interested in the critical study of social, cultural, historical, religious and political themes related to the Middle East, Islam, and Muslim communities. Also, Dartmouth University has a similar program in Middle Eastern Studies, where you will learn much more than the Arabic language; You will have the option to travel to an Arab country for a semester. Both institutions require prospective students to have at least a basic understanding of Arabic, but don’t let that discourage you. At Language Trainers, we can help you get ready for this exciting opportunity and take your Arabic to the next level with our tailor-made courses.

Learn Arabic for Culture: With a little knowledge of Arabic, you can enjoy a multitude of Arab cultural events that take place in the city on a more meaningful level. For example, every year, the Canadian Arab Friendship Association of Edmonton on 144 Avenue organizes a variety of events, such as the annual Heritage Festival, a celebration of differences and recognition of diversity in Edmonton. Attend and taste delicious cuisine, enjoy displays of artifacts and watch the Arabian Knights folklore team perform Dabke (a folkdance native to Lebanon, Syria and Saudi Arabia). And if you would like to learn how to belly dance, do not hesitate to take some lessons in one of the schools available throughout Edmonton, such as Bedouin Beats. They have a class for every age and body type and no experience is necessary. You will feel as if you were in Arabia without ever leaving Edmonton.

Learn Arabic for Social: Practise makes perfect, so sign up for an Arabic course and you will be able to make new Arabic-speaking friends and communicate with the Muslim community in the city. If you are looking to make new friends, for example, you can attend the weekly meetings organized by the Polyglot Social Club. There, you will meet other language learners looking to put their foreign language skills into practice, including Arabic. Don’t miss out on this chance to put to use everything you learn with us at Language Trainers in a friendly, welcoming environment.
