Private Classes for Adults

Arabic is one of the most widely recognized languages in parts of Asia and the Middle East. At Hills Learning, we teach MSA (Modern Standard Arabic) for reading and writing and Egyptian Arabic for Spoken in our group classes. For private classes, multiple dialects are possible.

Arabic private classes can be held in a specific time frame with customized goals. Hills Learning’s curriculum for Arabic comprises both language and cultural instruction. For each class, we follow our SWIRL methodology, developing at least three of the five language skills per class. Our main goal for Arabic private lessons is to develop conversational skills, but we also specialize in teaching heritage speakers, business or other specific goals.

Within this basic framework, Hills Learning’s staff develops curriculum and assessments based on student needs and goals.

Private Classes for Kids

Are you (or your young teen) interested in learning about the Arabic language and culture? How about you have children that would like to learn Arabic, either to develop skills to communicate with family or learn Arabic to get credit at school?

Hills Learning offers a unique opportunity for teens and kids learning Arabic in private lessons. We can not only teach them the basics of the Arabic script, reading, writing, and conversation, but it’s also possible that the classes your teen is taking with us can be transferred to their respective high school or college for credit. Please see for credit for further information.

Arabic Online Lessons give you the opportunity to learn Arabic with us even if you cannot commute to our center in New York City. Students can attend Arabic classes through the comfort of their own home using a handheld device or a desktop / laptop computer. We have options for students to take Arabic with us either in a private lesson format or a group lesson format. 

For private lessons for online students, we arrange a schedule like we would with regular Arabic private lessons, matching the student availability with the teacher's. We usually skype or zoom for online Arabic lessons but there are other programs that we are also open to using.

There is also an option for taking Arabic group classes in NYC through online.  What will happen is, subject to availability, you might be able to take any one of our group classes listed under the group class section by joining remotely. We'll setup a computer with an HD camera that allows students to interact with their classmates and teacher, like they would in a regular face to face group class. We'll also administer assessments via online and send any relevant homework for the classes.  

Please CONTACT US  for more information on the online classes. 

Hills Learning is next to multiple businesses that are headquartered near Grand Central Station in New York. We've worked with multiple companies to offer language lessons for corporate employees. Since we are a fully accredited institution, it is usually easier for prospective students to get reimbursement for their classes through us.

For classes for business at Hills Learning you can choose to take classes here through our regular group class offerings, or sign up to private Arabic lessons where we can tailor the curriculum to fit yours and your company's needs. We can teach Arabic and formal business Arabic, or just go through regular language acquisition for clients. 

There is a possibility for classes for business purposes to come and teach at your office. We also have classrooms available at our Grand Central location (usually business hours 9 to 5 are open, after hours you'd need to contact us). 

Please CONTACT US  for more information on our business programs. We look forward to hearing from you and discussing your business needs. 

Hills Learning offers courses for credit for Arabic. Since we're a fully accredited institution we have the ability to partner with either a college, university or high school to put together a program for transferring credit.

How the program works is you'd contact Hills Learning and ask about our programs for credit, mention that you're interested in learning Arabic. We'd then need to speak to a school administrator from your host school to see what their requirements would be for credit transfer and then discuss how either taking a group and / or private class here would help fulfill those requirements.

Taking classes for credit at Hills Learning is a great way to take your language of choice and have it count for credit. Too often we see schools not having Arabic classes to offer students. 

Please CONTACT US  about the Arabic classes for credit.

Hills Learning offers Arabic classes for kids. Our regular programs on our website are for adult students so if you're interested in classes for your kids to learn Arabic we usually teach kids in a private or a semi-private setting.

All classes for Hills Learning students are generally recommended to take place at our center, however we do also have the opportunity to send teachers to student homes for teaching. We understand especially with younger kids it's sometimes difficult to commute to our center.

Our lessons for Arabic for kids teach with a specific curriculum that is fun and engaging. We usually teach with videos, songs and interactive activities for the students to learn Arabic.
