The Taa Marbouta Language Centre has three classrooms, each showcasing the calligraffiti of Blech Esm, a local mural art company. The three rooms are named after three significant Arab writers of the twentieth century: Abulqassem Al-Chebbi, Mahmoud Darwish, and Nawal El-Saadawi. Our centre also has a kitchen and bathroom, a beautiful balcony, and sits next to the ancient Punic Port in historic Carthage, a UNESCO world heritage site on the Mediterranean Sea.
The Taa Marbouta Language Centre is driven by flexibility, which means our classes are able to start with just two students. At the same time, progress and effective learning is of the utmost importance to us, and so we limit classes to a maximum of eight students.
Evening classes last 90 minutes and take place after typical working hours, with the aim of fitting into the busy schedules of working professionals and others. Intensive classes generally last for four hours per day and take place in either the morning or afternoon, with short breaks built in to keep everyone fresh. While groups classes take place at our language centre in Carthage, online sessions can be arranged via Zoom for private study.
We provide study materials for all classes; students are just asked to bring their own notebooks, pens/pencils, and an open mind.
While the majority of our classes take place in Carthage, we try to organise regular study visits in line with the content that students are studying. This will include historical and cultural sites around Tunis, and occasionally visits to other parts of the country. This helps enable students to apply what they are learning and truly live the language.
