Communicate better with your Arabic speaking counterparts and customers. Delivered by a quality assured trainer, this one day course will introduce you to the basics of the Arabic language and give you an insight into cultural attitudes and behaviours.

By the end of the session delegates will better understand:

Basic Language
• Meeting and greeting
• Numbers
• Emergency Arabic - 'I'm sorry', 'Do you speak English?' etc.
• The basics of Arabic writing

Social & Business Etiquette
• Introducing yourself
• Meeting culture
• Manners - dos and don'ts
• Eating out

Why attend?

In business, great communication and customer care skills are essential to your success - so exporting to countries where English is not the official language and where cultural norms may be quite different can seem daunting. DIT has years of experience in helping UK exporters overcome the barriers around international communication - and our workshops provide a fantastic opportunity to tackle some of these barriers head on.


This exclusive workshop is only available to companies from the East Midlands region. Attendance costs just £50 (+VAT) per delegate and places are expected to go fast, so secure your place today.

Please note: no refunds will be given for cancellations received 3 working days or less prior to the event or for ‘no shows’ on the day.
