CLARIFICATIONS ON COURSE LEVELSIf you wish to register for the Language Center courses and you have studied Arabic at some prior time (in any sort of educational content, regardless of whether it was official), you must take our placement test.
If you have studied Arabic, but you only know the Arabic alphabet (letters and sounds) and a few basic notions (greetings, introductions, etc.), you should directly sign up for level AME I B.
If you have studied at the Language Center before and less than one year has gone by, you need not take the placement test (you can register for the level subsequent to the last level you successfully completed). If more than one year has elapsed, you must take the placement test.
PRACTICAL INFORMATIONThe classes are given at the Casa Árabe headquarters in Madrid.
In order to create a group, a minimum number of eight students must register, and a course will only begin if the required number of students sign up.
Once the Language Center has confirmed that the group will be created, there will be no refund of any registration fees.
If the group which you initially requested is not formed, then you may select one of other groups that has been created or ask to have the full registration fee refunded.
