The playful way to learn the Arabic language and culture

Teaching Modern Standard Arabic to children since 1994 in France, the US and Online

Alefb programs

Alefb, multicultural center for children, offers Arabic language and culture workshops to children aged 3 to 12 years old.
Our teachers are professional educators, trained by Alefb in our playful instructional approach. They are all native Arabic speakers.

With more than 25 years of experience, Alefb has developed a unique program for teaching Arabic as a foreign language to children.
The overall goal is to familiarize the children with the language and the culture through games, stories, songs, Arabic music, instruments and dance, cooking workshops and sample tasting of typical food, performance arts, arts and crafts, outdoor activities, cultural field trips and more.
The program places emphasis on communication and total physical response techniques. 
Our instructors strive to develop each student to their full potential with an individualized motivating instruction, they will gradually bring them to read and write in a fun way.
Your children will be guided by Alefb teachers, through a journey to the heart of the Arabic Language and Culture.
Students will be able to understand, speak, read, and write in a warm and nurturing environment.

Prior knowledge of the language is not required; groups of 5 to 10 kids will be set up according to level and age (3 to 5, 6 to 9 and 10 to 12 years old).

We run three types of programs:

  1. Onsite After school Arabic classes are implemented in Paris area, Washington-DC area, New York Area, and the San Francisco Bay area
  2. Whether you represent an organization (a school, a PTA, another organization) or an individual, Alefb will be happy to assist you setting up your own Alefb classes.
  3. For teachers, we developed professional training modules and a continuing education program.
