Speak Like a Local With Eton Institute’s Emirati Conversation Course
Dubai expats can now truly appreciate the UAE culture and the native language by taking a unique Arabic conversational course that focuses on the Emirati dialect.
The widespread and influential language of Arabic is made up of countless regional dialects, hence learners realise the importance of language immersion. Taught by a native-speaking Emirati instructor, the 16 hour course gives learners a deeper understanding of the Emirati way of life, including a cultural experience at the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. Whether you wish to strengthen professional relationships, or to make new friends, the course equips you with the local slang and etiquette required for any situation in the UAE.
Moaz Khan, Marketing Manager at Eton Institute commented: “You can now pass-off as a local while ordering hummus or strike up a conversation with an Emirati friend by learning the Emirati dialect. From the local slang to cultural do's and don’ts, this course will get you speaking and appreciating the language and culture of the UAE in no time.”
A FREE demo Emirati Conversational class will be held on Saturday, 28 May at Better U – 2011, a FREE community event organised by Eton Institute every year with the tagline ‘A great day to learn something new!’ Attendees can participate in over a 100 free activities on the day from dance classes ooprc to language lessons, self-defence and life-coaching.
