We believe language & culture are better shared than taught

Our story:

Sharek Centre is a new, London-based, holistic language instruction centre for Arabic language learning, Arabic teacher training and the development of understanding of Arab culture.

A leader in Arabic language instruction, offering a range of programmes—from language courses for all levels of proficiency to business language solutions to professional development training for teachers, as well as virtual learning programmes for UK-based and international learners—we pride ourselves in being a global provider of immersive Arabic language study.

Sharek Centre is hub of Arabic language and culture built upon the principle of sharing and mutual exchange. We take a new interactive approach to teaching, which ultimately encourages experience of Arabic language and Arab culture in an immersive and participatory way. As well as hosting events and providing a range of services, we are home to an Arabic library, bookshop and a publically accessible café that celebrates Arab cuisine.

With a dedicated staff of experts in the field of Arabic language and teacher training, we place emphasis on personalised attention to foster students that are able to communicate effectively with Arabic speakers. In addition to the spectrum of courses on offer, we allow for flexible timetables and customisable programmes uniquely tailored to suit each learner’s needs. Understanding the importance of the practical use of language, at Sharek Centre, we provide a comprehensive and immersive method of learning by shared experience.
