Kuwait, 16-28 January 2022

The French National Institute for Oriental Languages and Civilizations (INALCO) and the French Research Centre of the Arabian Peninsula (CEFREPA) are organizing an intensive linguistic and cultural course on contemporary Gulf. The course combines classes in Standard Arabic, Gulf dialects, as well as human and social sciences (history, geopolitics, artistic and archeological patrimony).

This course is intended for trainees (students, researchers, company and administration professionals, etc.), French or otherwise, who have already obtained the level B1 (Common European Framework of Reference), or its equivalent, in Classical Arabic, or a minimum of 200 hours of education.

The intensive course will take place over two weeks for a total of 60 hours of classes on-site at CEFREPA in Kuwait. The host country stands out in the region for its Arabic-speaking welcoming environment, an ideal location to immerse oneself in the language outside of class.

Terms of enrollement :

The course is intended for a limited number of students : only 12 seats are available for the 2022 session. The accompanying registration form must be completed and sent to the following email address by 15/12/2021 :


Enrollment fees : 380 euros. Fees must be paid by 03/01/2022 through transfer to CEFREPA’s account. The bank details will be provided to the selected candidats.

The reservation and price of a plane ticket are at the responsibility of the participant (around 300 or 400 euros for a low cost flight). The CEFREPA cannot give any scholarship for this course, but can offer free residence in shared rooms (not mixed) for participants who request it.
