What is the price of learning A1 Arabic?
Arabic is a Semitic language that first emerged in the 1st to 4th centuries CE. It is now the lingua franca of the Arab world. It is named after the Arabs, a term initially used to describe peoples living in the Arabian Peninsula bounded by eastern Egypt in the west, Mesopotamia in the east, and the Anti-Lebanon mountains and Northern Syria in the north, as perceived by ancient Greek geographers. The ISO assigns language codes to thirty varieties of Arabic, including its standard form, Modern Standard Arabic, also referred to as Literary Arabic, which is modernized Classical Arabic. This distinction exists primarily among Western linguists; Arabic speakers themselves generally do not distinguish between Modern Standard Arabic and Classical Arabic, but rather refer to both as al-ʿarabiyyatu l-fuṣḥā (اَلعَرَبِيَّةُ ٱلْفُصْحَىٰ “the eloquent Arabic”) or simply al-fuṣḥā (اَلْفُصْحَىٰ). Modern Standard Arabic is an official language of 26 states and 1 disputed territory, the third most after English and French.
Arabic is widely taught in schools and universities and is used to varying degrees in workplaces, government and the media. Arabic, in its standard form, is the official language of 26 states, as well as the liturgical language of the religion of Islam, since the Quran and Hadith were written in Arabic
At the A1 CEFR level, a language learner:
- Can understand and use very basic expressions to satisfy concrete needs.
- Can introduce themselves and others, ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he/she lives, people they know and things they have.
- Can interact simply as long as the other person speaks slowly and clearly.
In A1 level courses students generally learn about the basics of the language in which Arabic grammar is designed for absolute beginners. Then you will learn a clear and comprehensive grammatical foundation for acquiring a basic knowledge of the Arabic language.
Fee Structure for A1 Arabic courses
It depends on the location i.e., where you want to learn a language and the school you choose to learn. The course varies based on the reputation of the school and the course duration.
If you want to hire an individual Arabic tutor, then the course fee would be on an hourly basis. In my opinion, it will be ranging from 9000-15000 ₹ per month.
whereas it is different in the language schools, where you can learn 5 to 6 hours daily. These are language schools so the fee structure would be high. It will range from 25000-30000₹ per month.
The Fee of Arabic Courses Increases with the Teacher’s Experience
You will learn Arabic fast if you work with an experienced Arabic teacher who can guide you when you are struggling, and correct you when you make mistakes.
To lower the cost of your Arabic classes, here is something to take into account: the more experience and longer the reference list of your Arabic teacher, the higher his or her fees will be. It’s completely logical.
So the fee for Learning Arabic with an experienced teacher is slightly more than that of a normal teacher.
Because someone said so right that if you want quality learning you have to pay some more.
You can also opt for home tutors to learn Arabic. You can either call a tutor at home at your convenient time or you can visit the tutor’s place. The average fee is ₹500-₹2000 per hour for the first option and ₹500-₹1000 per hour for the latter.
Nowadays there is an online learning platform, known as Multibhashi, that offers a wide range of online language learning as well. The average fee is ₹4599 for 30 classes. The duration of the class is 30min. Here the trainer will guide and interact with the learners virtually in a webinar group class. And the other option is one to one class. The fee for this class is higher than the other one. But you will need a computer or a smartphone as well as good internet service in order to learn it online. So it will be the course fee as well as the internet bill. You can choose from either of the two according to your preference and convenience.
Arabic tutors are not as expensive as you think. If learning a language is important for you then you will not look at the cost. You just learn. So I would suggest you choose classes at your convenience.
So don’t think more but start learning.
All the best!!!
