New- CAC Online Arabic School

About

CAC online Arabic program offers one of the most versatile, cost effective, and innovative language programs in the nation.

Regardless to the geographic location, students will develop proficiency in reading, writing, and speaking Arabic. Our program focuses on active-learning strategies and student-centered pedagogy, accommodating 21st century learners from all backgrounds and age groups (Grade 2-5, Grade 6-8, Grade 9-12, college age learners, and adults).

In designing our program, the curriculum team focused on important concepts from the classical approach of learning languages, in addition to the educational standards of American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) and the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).

Our Arabic classes are small and engaging, averaging six students per class. This allows for extensive opportunities for conversation and participation. We provide hands-on learning; rather than simply perfecting grammar and vocabulary, we go beyond the textbook to activate learning.

The CAC curriculum team designed the curriculum and enhanced it with instructional videos, educational games, 2.0 tools, and cultural concepts from all over the Arab world. Students will enjoy learning about the Arab culture while experiencing exciting virtual cultural tours of Arab countries to highlight their history, traditions, and customs.

CAC online Arabic courses are built in Canvas learning management system (LMS), allowing students access to the content 24/7.

Learners and teachers meet synchronously twice a week in “Zoom” virtual classroom.

We offer a semester-based program for fall (October 5- January 13), spring (January 25-April 28), summer session I (May 3-June 16), and summer session II (July 7-August 16) to accommodate your specific scheduling needs.

The program consists of SEVEN levels of proficiency, starting with beginners and progressing up to more advanced levels. These levels are set according to the standards of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) and the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
