At Noor Majan we recognize that successful language acquisition comes from repetitive application of concepts and knowledge in real life situations. Thus, to support language growth we pair students with local Omani language partners for two hours every week. These individuals are given training on intercultural communication and strategies on how to support students studying Arabic. They encourage students to speak Arabic freely and to be confident in their language abilities. More than often language partners become students’ friends and serve as a mentor in engaging in the local culture. Friendships between language partners often leads to students being invited to their homes or to family events.
