Here is my ongoing list of reputable Arabic programs for study outside of college classrooms (summer study, independent study). Please feel free to comment if you have experience with these or other programs that should be listed.
Egypt (Unfortunately, political unrest may render Egypt a poor choice for study abroad this year. Syria is not currently listed for the same reason. May Egyptians and Syrians be granted more political stability and civil rights.)
- Alexandria American Councils for International Education Arabic Overseas – This option provides intermediate level instruction. For U.S. or Canadian residents.
- Arabic Language Institute – This option provides instruction at multiple levels to people of any nationality
- Center for Arabic Study Abroad – This option provides the most advanced level of Arabic instruction to American citizens or permanent residents.
- Meknes AALIM
- Tunis CET Arabic Program
- California: Middlebury Language School – This option is best for beginner to advanced students who want to focus on Modern Standard Arabic.
- Maryland: Here is another option for beginner to advanced students who want to learn spoken Arabic alongside standard Arabic, and who are unable to study abroad in the summer.
- Texas: UT Austin provides another option for beginner to advanced students (qualified high school and college students) to study Arabic in the summer without traveling out of the United States.
- Wisconsin: Here is a program of which I would appreciate any news and reviews.
