A BEST SELLER NOW AVAILABLE FOR ENGLISH SPEAKERS
The gates of Arabic language The reasons why we feel attracted to a foreign language are always quite personal; they depend on our own story and on our own background. Learning a language may at first sight look complex, demanding and time consuming. That is why Dilap has come up with the idea of having several points of entry to the language, called gates.

DILAP didactics : Learn the difference

1- Teaching Arabic as a foreign language - with appropriate techniques - to Western students that are not native speakers. Educational research in Europe and particularly in France now enables one to learn Arabic as one would a western language. The process for teaching Arabic to a Westerner is radically different from that one would use with a native speaker. 2- Arabic as a language of communication with goal-oriented pedagogical choices and modern teaching tools. To create an effective teaching program it is not enough to use the most sophisticated technology (microphones, CD's, phonetics software.). Teaching methods tested in actual conditions are even more important. ​
