Arabic in Toronto

Canadians of Arab origin make up one of the largest non-European ethnic groups in Canada. In 2001, almost 350,000 people of Arab origin lived in Canada, representing 1.2% of the total Canadian population, and the number has increased in recent years. According to the 2016 census, there are more than 900,000 people who now claim Arabic is their mother tongue living in the country—an increase of over 250%—and 50,000 of them live in Toronto. Most of these immigrants come from very different countries, such as Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Morocco and Iran, but what they all have in common is the Arabic language. And though most of the people of these communities are able to converse in English, you will be able to connect with them on a whole new level by learning to speak Arabic.

Why Study Arabic in Toronto

Learn Arabic for Work: If you are looking for a new job in Toronto, then learning Arabic can help you stand out, especially when compared to others who only speak one language. If you would like to connect with entrepreneurs of Arab origin, you can get in touch with the Canada Arab Chamber of Commerce, an institution founded in 1999 to serve as a network for Arab and Canadian companies and to promote friendly business relations. Another institution that can help you is the Canadian Arab Institute. Established in 2011, it offers a unique perspective on the issues faced by Canadians who want to establish a business in the Arabian Peninsula and vice-versa. To fulfil its aims, the institute organizes talks and seminars about doing business in the Middle East with a focus on renewable energy and security and defense. If you work in those fields, then studying Arabic is a wise move to ensure you can interact with Arabic-speaking partners and clients.

Learn Arabic for Social: And if you are not actively job-seeking but would like to make new friends instead, you can use your new Arabic skills to socialize around Toronto. For example, why not join the Toronto Arab Meetup? This language exchange group welcomes anyone who would like to learn about the Middle East. Take advantage of this great opportunity to put what you learn in your lessons to use in a real-life setting. All their meetings take place in themed restaurants or bars, so you will be able to show off and use your flawless vocabulary and pronunciation to order food and drinks in Arabic!

Learn Arabic for Culture: Social and work opportunities aside, if you want to explore the various cultures of the Arab peoples, you can find many instances for doing so in Toronto. Music lovers, for example, can attend the annual Festival of Arabic Music and Arts. It features a number of international artists and the work of the impressive Canadian Arabic Orchestra. Enhance your enjoyment by learning Arabic to understand the lyrics of the featured songs, or even sing along! And those more interested in parties and celebrations can attend the annual Ramadan Festival in Toronto, where you can find anything from Arab clothing and food vendors to face painting, story times and handmade-crafts workshops. Impress the attendees with the language skills you learn with us at Language Trainers and have a great time!
