Our Courses

Shaam Center owns all of its own material: We create our own textbooks, homework and curricula. They are offered exclusively through enrollment. A brief sample of the lesson is available below.

Unified Arabic: Fast Track to Fluency

Embedded within languages are emotions, humor, mannerisms and cultures – ultimately, successful learning should result in cultural competence. Successful interaction with an Arab world whose global importance grows with each passing day entails a mastery of Arabic.

In order to supplement students’ academic success, we facilitate:

  • Externships with NGOs and companies within the Syrian community
  • Finding native conversational partners
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Transcripts for academic credit
  • Recommendation letters
  • Supplementary test prep and ACTFL proficiency prep

Shaam provides a contemporary experience that no other Study Abroad can match: learning in the heart of global migration. Our students transform their careers by spending all their time in Arabic-speaking settings, and enjoy an opportunity to interact with a side of German and Syrian society that most other students rarely see.
