The Arabic studies' program is one of the programs at Excellence Center that offers international students the opportunity to combine the study of the Arabic language with living the Palestinian daily life.
You want to study Arabic in an environment that brings together modernity and tradition? You want to get to know youth culture and a society with a rich tradition? Hebron/Khalil is the place to go! It is the biggest city in the West-Bank located south of Jerusalem and features two universities – the Hebron University and Polytechnic University. Khalil is one of the oldest and continuously inhabited cities of Palestine and famous site of Abraham's tomb. The city is one of the holiest places for all three world religions – Islam, Judaism and Christianity. This makes it particularly appealing for Israeli settlers who have taken over half of the city. For this reason you will also be able to get your personal impression of Palestinian-Israeli relations.
Maybe you are coming directly from the university and want to improve your theoretically acquired language skills or planning to conduct fieldwork? Are you preparing to conduct business in the area or even planning to live here? You are parents are from Palestine, but your stay abroad has alienated you from Arabic a bit? Or are you just fascinated by learning new languages in different countries – and don't have knowledge of Arabic yet? Whatever your motivation or level of Arabic we offer the right courses and group constellations for you. It's difficult for you to study in big groups? – you have the choice of studying Arabic in a group of (10), (5) or on a one-on-one independent study basis. We are looking forward to having you in our class!
