Information About Us
This website, arabiconlineschool.com, is owned and operated by Arcana S.P.C, a company registered in Bahrain.
This website offers access to online language learning courses for Arabic. The CEFR levels match up well to the Modern Standard Arabic course but for the listening and speaking skills only. CEFR levels are recognized across Europe. The Foundation courses equate to A2 (with some B1) and the Intermediate courses equates to B1 and B2. It is a good grounding for A Level BUT reading and writing also need to be learnt separately. Registered users can select between Gulf Arabic and Modern Standard Arabic.
