Arabic classes for adults (see below for classes for children)

Welcome to our small, friendly classes that focus on Palestinian dialect. Our classes have been going for years and the feedback is very good. The classes support the charity CADFA - find out more at CADFA.org

Since Covid, our main classes have been going very well online and this continues. This year, in addition, we are planning to have a conversation class for adults on Saturdays at the Cafe designed particularly to provide speaking practice. Let us know if this is of interest to you.
