About Us

“Indeed, We revealed it as an Arabic recitation so that you can comprehend” إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ قُرْآنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ

Our Mission Statement

The Arabic Language Institute (A.L.I.) is an educational facility that certifies students in both Classical and Modern Standard Arabic. The primary function of A.L.I. is to meet the global demand of the Arabic language by providing students with innovative tools and techniques allowing them to attain a level of proficiency in the Arabic language based on the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) guidelines.

The similitude of the Arabic language resembles a house that is made from sugarcane and whose door is made of steal. It is difficult to enter; however, once in everything else is easy.

إنَّ العربية كمثل بيت من قصب وبابه من حديد

يعني أنّه صعب الدخول؛ لكن إذا دخلتَ سهُل عليك كلّ شيء
