The coordinator

Each program has a coordinator with a long history of experience in the field of Arabic Language Pedagogy for Nonnative Speakers. The coordinator is appointed by the administration to make a weekly calendar for the educational process and review plans and goals to ensure the best results for the programs at MALIC. The coordinator’s office is open anytime.

Placement Tests

Each student at MALIC undergoes a placement test before the start of their program. The placement test lasts for four hours and it focuses on the four skills. This test is held by the program coordinator in which he/she determines the student’s level in all the skills of the language to draft the goals to achieve. It includes correction to mistakes in pronunciation, grammar, fluency, syntax and sentence structure, spelling mistakes, and reading comprehension. 

MALIC also deals with special cases of students and we are fully aware of all the requirements of the educational process. The administration at MALIC supports any suggestion offered by the faculty and the coordinator to ensure a full success of the programs and so that students achieve all their goals in an entertaining, useful and comfortable studying environment.

The Tailor-Made Program gives students the front seat in the decision-making process of their own education, determining the program length, goals, priorities, scheduling, content, material and methodology  “Min al-Alif lil-Yaa”. The flexibility and versatility of the Tailor-Made Program makes it an excellent choice for individuals or small groups with professional commitments, allowing them to build their program around their preexisting work or study schedules, while allowing them to engage in a targeted curriculum that meets their specific needs.
