Saudi language complex launches immersive course for non-native Arabic students
  • Program aims to improve students’ communication skills to help integration into society
  • Project entails activities, excursions to supplement the learning process

RIYADH: The King Salman International Complex for the Arabic Language has launched a language immersion project which offers unique short courses for non-native students.

The project aims to help students improve their communication skills to integrate them into Saudi society, while learning about its heritage, culture and customs.

The initiative is in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 Human Capability Development Program, which aims to disseminate and promote pride in the Arabic language. 

The language immersion program offers a variety of courses that include activities and excursions to supplement the learning process. 

The complex is set to launch an “Arabic for Tourism Purposes” course in Jeddah, which is aimed at visitors interested in learning about the Kingdom’s archaeological sites.

It will start an “Arabic for Cultural Purposes” course in Jeddah in the second quarter of 2023 targeted at international students learning Arabic as a second language in universities and language teaching centers outside Saudi Arabia, who want to learn in its native environment. 

The complex has announced that the program will allow students to register for courses that include tuition, housing, and transportation costs.
