Detailed and exquisite poems from the pre-Islamic period to classics such as the 1,001 nights and even modern Egyptian works such as those by Naguib Mahfouz are all integral parts of Arabic literature. At Sibawayh, you can either choose to focus your literature studies on a particular period or author, or sample with our teachers a range of different eras, learning the defining elements between each.
Currently in its eighth year, the Sibawayh Center is an Arabic language center based in the Nasr City area of Cairo, Egypt. The center was created by a group of Arabic teachers who wanted to spread the knowledge of Arabic and Islamic Studies to those around the world with qualifications in teaching the language to non-native speakers in addition to degrees from the renowned Al Azhar University.
As we have built our reputation, we have come to understand that teaching Arabic is much more about understanding the vocabulary, grammar, and syntax of the language. Rather, the best way to learn is through the application of your skills by participating in conversation, religious studies, and literature.See all Sibawayh Center courses
