January in Oman Short-term Study Abroad
Center for International Learning (CIL)
|Program description||The January in Oman program is hosted by the Center for International Learning (CIL).
Whether you are a beginner or more advanced Arabic speaker, there is a level to suit you. The program focuses on key learning areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking. The course is 100 hours in total, comprising a minimum of 25 contact hours per week. This is broken down into five hours per day, five days a week, over the four-week program.
Learning about Omani and Arabic culture will be integrated with your study of the Arabic language. The class sizes are small, with typically 5-10 students per class, facilitating a more interactive learning environment and allowing greater participation. You will also have access to a library and / or language lab if you require a study space for additional independent learning outside of the classroom.
