One of the oldest Arabic language schools on this list, the Arabic Language Center has long been an institution in the city. It teaches beginners to A-levels, one of the few schools that proudly do so in this day and age. With a limit of 12 students per class, they continuously encourage them to speak the language, get used to the phonetics, and familiarize themselves with the grammar in order to really absorb it first-hand. They take pride in their extremely interactive approach to teaching Arabic, citing it as one of their key secrets to becoming one of the best of their kind.
Though the Emcan Educational Institute is more of a traditional primary school, it does take pride in its Arabic language courses. In fact, they even teach their other courses in the language as well, even with international students. For them, Arabic is already a part of life, something that must come naturally to those living in the city. And so they approach the language in a more intrinsic sense, incorporating them into daily activities to help the students get used to speaking it. But at the same time, they also teach it the traditional way in the classroom too. Because that's always been effective as well.
You can learn Arabic in EF International Language Center in two ways, the intensive way or the online way. Yes, the school offers online courses as well because they understand that not all students follow the same schedules. Their digital offering allows students to maintain their lifestyles while still catching up with their lessons and learning at their own pace. While the intensive Arabic classes, on the other hand, will drill into you all you need to know to speak Arabic well, conversational, and fluently as if you were a local yourself. And it helps that their tuition fees are pretty much affordable.
Eton Institute is a giant in the world of language schools. It has long taught different languages in different major cities around the world. And here in Dubai, it's more or less the same. They offer up their Arabic Intensive Group Course, a class of a maximum of 20 students taught by native speakers over the course of three weeks. You will complete over 30 hours of learning the language immersively, interactively, and as the name of the class suggests, intensively. You'll get drilled into speaking Arabic as if your life depended on it. And this school wouldn't have it any other way.
Don't stop at just speaking Arabic, at the Golden Age Institute, they'll also teach you how to read and write it. Because what good is speaking the language if you can't even understand it on paper.

One of the best parts about enrolling with them is that they give you control over your own time and to learn at your own pace.
Just like the EF International Language Center, the Headway Institute also offers online courses in learning Arabic. And it makes complete sense since what they aim to teach is more or less the communicative properties of the language. Both through your in-person or online courses, you get to converse with your professor about everything there is to learn about the language. They provide a comfortable space for students to keep an open mind and to absorb everything that's taught to them. But at the same time. students are also encouraged to incorporate what they've learned in normal and day-to-day situations too.
