The Mainstream Program is a general, all-purpose program for students interested in a well-rounded learning experience in a group setting that is founded on MALIC's original internally-developed curricula. Participants in the Mainstream will commit to a full 15-week semester of Arabic studies whose in-class sessions include 6 hours of MALIC's Al-'Arabiyya Al-TawaaSuliyya series (Modern Standard Arabic), 6 hours of the Media Arabic series, and 4 hours of the Levantine Colloquial Arabic series on a weekly basis. Each of these series contains six books for six different levels that provide the appropriate fit for any Arabic learner, from beginners to near-native speakers (except for the Levantine Colloquial Arabic series which is currently composed of only 3 books). Students with previous experience in Arabic are first evaluated for placement in an appropriate level for each series.
* The 15-week Mainstream Program is offered twice a year:
- once in the fall (from the 1st Sunday in September to the 3rd Thursday in December)
- once in the spring (from the 1st Sunday in February to the 3rd Thursday in May).
* Enrollment is considered on a rolling basis. However, the deadline for registration in the Mainstream Program for the fall and the spring is one month prior to the academic semester's first day of classes. Notification of cancellations are also required before this date.
The students accepted for this program, and who will take the same classes should be at the same level . There might be one student, two or 3 students at the same level, to the maximum of 5 students in one class.
