Arabic for Non-Arabic Speakers

in the digital age


Since its creation, the International Center for Pedagogical Training, also known as CIFOP has established itself as the European leader in the field of teaching Arabic language. the center contributes to the improvement of the education quality in general and to the quality of teaching Arabic for non-Arabic speakers particularly.
We work in several fields of competence, mainly:

  • Teaching Arabic to both younglings and adults.
  • Teachers training.
  • Teaching innovation and support for educational projects.
  • Design and production of educational resources.


It is a reorganization of courses, designed to stimulate the learner to build his own learning process, in-line with his personal pace and time availability, while taking advantage of a variety of additional texts and exercises traditional courses do not allow.

  • It’s a fact: digital is part of our life. It is an unavoidable teaching tool.
  • Every day, we use computers, smartphones, pads and many other connected tools to surf on the web, search for information, communicate…
  • We want to teach our children to make a moderate and appropriate use of the tools for an educational objective, playful and supervised.
  • The Z generation has new habits, new automatisms, and traditional learning methods are no longer adequate.

We have added the level A0 (which doesn't exist in the CEFRL scale), to distinguish those who are new to the Arabic language and have never learned it.
Based on a playful approach, the introductory level aims to make the characteristics of Arabic letters familiar to children, to get them used to correcting their pronunciation, and it aims also to make them discover new forms of writing through having fun, playing games, addressing and paying attention.
This level also teaches the conversion of a sound into a written letter (writing) and conversely (reading). The child can read only the letter or the whole word then he can memorize a new vocabulary that will give him basic language knowledge that is essential for the next level.


LEVEL 1 - A1.1

In this level, we continue preparing the learner to obtain the fundamentals of the Arabic language, depending on the following objectives:
• Improve the learner's pronunciation and familiarize him with the sounds of Arabic letters, so that he can tell apart between them when he speaks, writes and listens.
• Develop a basic linguistic and lexical knowledge that the learner is able to exploit correctly (expressions).
• Start with words to form sentences.


LEVEL 2 - A1.2

This level enhances the acquired skills. The learner is able to read the letters and use them in short, simple words or sentences.
He learns to distinguish the letters with similarities in both spoken and written forms.
He continues to expand his vocabulary, which allows him to understand what he is told and to express himself with simple sentences.


LEVEL 3 - A2-.1

Learning is like a building game.
This level is intended to stabilize the achievements of the previous years and to control the reading skills in a better way: articulation, phonetics and respecting the connection and distinction rules between sounds and words.
The learner is able to form sentences and read correctly. He learns the basic rules of grammar, conjugation and spelling, in order for him to build a strong foundation that allows him to continue expanding his knowledge of the language.


LEVEL 4 - A2.2

At the end of this level, the learner can read a text correctly, in a continuous and meaningful way while respecting the punctuation.
He expresses himself properly, in both oral and written forms, and he knows how to describe in an accurate and detailed manner.
He continues to discover the rules of grammar, morphology, conjugation, spelling, and learns to use them in conversations and while writing.


LEVEL 5 - B1.1

At the end of this new stage, the learner reads Arabic texts correctly, understands their different meanings and knows how to reformulate them.
Both the themes and the types of discourse in this level (descriptive, narrative) were chosen to achieve these objectives.


LEVEL 6 - B1.2

This level equates to a switch in learning. At this point, the learner is able to translate his thoughts into spoken and written language.
The development of expressive skills will be an important part of this program, thanks to the themes that are specifically chosen to make learners focus on communication and on the frequent use of the literal Arabic language.
