“My teacher is kind and includes each of us”
“I am delighted. It helps me a lot to speak on topics I thought I was incapable of.”
Have you taken classes in a structure where speaking was not practiced enough?
Or perhaps you have focused your learning on grammar and written expression due to a lack of a partner to practice speaking?
You have learned vocabulary lists, but this vocabulary, so hard memorized, seems stuck in your mind when you want to use it to speak Arabic?
You understand more and more of what you hear in Arabic, but you feel like you’re not progressing in speaking?
You can’t formulate your sentences… And it’s starting to get frustrating and maybe even becoming a complex?
This is undoubtedly a huge disappointment.
To speak Arabic fluently, there’s no secret… You have to speak…
Yes, but not just in a random manner.
You have to practice on a variety of well-chosen topics to allow you to cover a wide range of everyday vocabulary.
But not everyone has the opportunity to regularly practice with an Arabic speaker.
And even if you had this option, without a clearly defined goal and a framework to guide your learning, exchanges will soon be limited and you will quickly realize that your problem is still not solved…
We often notice among new students (who register to start classes with us) that there is almost always an imbalance in their knowledge.
And this imbalance is, most of the time, oral practice.
They could have an excellent level of grammar, but they were not able to hold a conversation adapted to their level.
So we wanted to fill that gap.
That’s why we created a structured oral expression program to take you step by step to a level of mastery.
We present our oral expression program “Takallam!” which means “speak!” in Arabic.
📌 The “Takallam!” program: These are our famous 100% language practice workshops.
They are essential for loosening your tongue and finally speaking Arabic fluently.
Put into practice the vocabulary you have learned to avoid blockages.
Immerse yourself in real-life situations with live interactions to improve your speech.
Develop your comprehension through different dialogues to get used to different situations and intonations.
“I really appreciate working through audio and written materials, the interaction is very present and we always learn new vocabulary and expressions“
📌 LIVE CLASSES
Live classes (via Zoom) to immerse yourself with an experienced Arabic-speaking teacher and unlock your language by practicing the vocabulary buried in your memory and the new vocabulary presented during the session.
📌 ADAPTED DURATION
45-minute sessions. A convenient duration that fits into your daily schedule. Enough to practice and not too long to avoid burnout and boredom.
📌 SUSTAINED PACE
Keep motivated with a sustained training rhythm without being invasive. The training lasts 15 weeks at a pace of 2 sessions of 45 minutes per week.
📌 COLLABORATIVE ENVIRONMENT
Practice in small groups of 4 students maximum to promote interaction and conviviality.
📌 RECOGNIZED FRAMEWORK
Place yourself on the standard reference grid of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) in academic and professional situations. Or, quite simply, for your knowledge of how far you have come and how far you still have to go.
📌 STRUCTURED SESSIONS
No longer be stuck without knowing what to say with our program that structures the session.
📌 MEASURED PROGRESS
Measure your progress with an end-of-course assessment. This will keep you motivated and focused on reaching your goal
📌 UNLIMITED CORRECTIONS
Benefit from unlimited corrections of your homework. The more you practice, the more you will progress. Receive feedback from your teacher on all the assignments you submit.
📌 ONGOING FEEDBACK
After each class, receive a detailed report of your progress during the session, as well as a summary of the tasks completed and to be done (homework).
📌 PERSONALIZED ASSESSMENT
Know where you are and if you are on the path to success. Your teacher will send you a personalized mid-session assessment of your strengths and areas for improvement.
📌 CELEBRATE YOUR SUCCESS
Your efforts will be rewarded by the sending of a certificate of success, mentioning your final grade, and a special mention.
Access to the collective sessions of the “Takallam!” program is open only 3 times a year. The next session will start on 17/04/2024
To join the students who will attend the sessions, you must meet the following requirements:
✅ Be ready to seriously commit to the immersion method (100% Arabic classes): This is THE essential method to master spoken and understood literary Arabic.
✅ Be ready to take charge of your success (attendance, homework, revisions, etc.): Of course, we are not looking for the perfect student, but to make your investment (time and money) worthwhile, it is crucial to put in place the necessary means.
✅ Commit for the entire session, which is 15 weeks. Places are limited (only 4 students per group), so if you are not ready to finish the session, don’t start it.
✅ Be 16 years of age or older.
If you take classes in a structure where oral expression is little practiced, you will need, depending on your profile, 4 to 6 months to reach a CEFR level for oral expression.
This will cost you on average 350 to 500 euros in study fees.
With the Takallam! program, you focus on oral expression to reduce the time of acquisition of levels and the cost of study.
The 15-week training is priced at 122€

The “Takallam!” speech program is for English speakers (Men, women, and teenagers over 16) who want to unbind their tongue and speak in Arabic.
You need to be able to read Arabic (with vowels).
The courses are conducted exclusively in classical Arabic. We are convinced of the benefits of immersion and have developed our controlled immersion method.
Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have shown that “immersion learning creates brain connections similar to those of native speakers. However, it is essential that the audio material is authentic, i.e., coming from people whose language is native.” (Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience – M.I.T).
To effectively learn the Arabic language, it is, therefore, crucial to immerse yourself in this language in the company of a native speaker.

Each session lasts 3 months (30 sessions), with 2 45min-sessions per week.
A session corresponds to one level.
To know your level of oral expression and receive a personalized report, you must pass a level test with one of our professors.
Each group includes between 2 and 4 students.
We use a support tool that we have created.
The training takes place entirely online, live with a native teacher via Zoom.
The schedule is determined according to the registered students.
The schedules are sent 3 weeks before the start of the courses so that you can choose your group.
The next sessions will take place on the following dates, insha Allah:
– July 15, 2023
– November 4, 2023
– April 20, 2024
The training costs €122. There are no registration fees. The support tool is offered.
We offer a preferential rate only for students from the previous session.
Thus, if you register for the next session at the normal rate (€122), you can continue your training at the next level at a preferential rate.
We do not offer discounts in other cases.
Payment in two installments is available to facilitate your registration.
It is a program focused on oral expression and comprehension (to speak you must also understand).
You will learn vocabulary that you will immediately put into practice. You will listen to dialogues and do simulations.
Obviously, you don’t speak fluent Arabic after just one level of the Takallam! program.
However, you will gain fluency level after level bi idhniLlah
Our complete program (the Al Kaamil program) covers the 4 skills of acquiring a foreign language (so it covers oral expression and understanding).
You don’t need to register for the Takallam! program.
Our students who follow our curriculum evolve in a balanced way in the 4 skills.
However, if you want to progress more quickly orally, you can register for the Takallam! training in parallel.
It will allow you to practice more often outside your classes. This can only be beneficial.
The “Takallam!” program is studied in group lessons only.
In private lessons, you can study oral expression “freely” (without material).
