Sabla is an intensive language and cultural immersion program for American undergraduate and graduate students. Each summer, students from across the U.S. can study Arabic at SQCC in Washington D.C. on scholarship.

APPLICATIONS DUE 29 MAY 2022

The word Sabla in Omani Arabic dialect refers to a place in each community where people gather and receive hospitality. Sabla also serves as a meeting place to discuss important public issues.

The Sabla program aspires to be a hub bringing together students from across the U.S. for a dynamic linguistic and cultural exchange. The program hopes to enable students to become active learners and to form a community to cultivate a lifelong Arabic language learning experience.

The program is an intensive summer language experience designed to benefit current university-level students and recent graduates. Courses are offered at four different levels: Advanced Beginning, Low Intermediate, High Intermediate and Advanced. The program emphasizes the instruction of Modern Standard Arabic or MSA (fusha).

The Sabla program runs for five weeks each summer, from Monday to Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Experienced instructors use a proficiency-based approach that emphasizes all five skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing and grammar. Arabic is the main language of instruction. Classes are held in technologically advanced classrooms. The program offers formal instruction in a language that is enriched by immersion in an authentic cultural context. Cultural activities include weekly lectures on topics related to Arab history, society, and culture with a special focus on Oman.
