The AL-ARABIYYA-INSTITUTE was founded in 2011 by Eckehard Schulz, Professor at the Oriental Institute of the University of Leipzig. It has many years of experience in the Arab world. It focuses on offering students and teachers services and also sees itself as a center for the development of teaching materials, not just academic Arabic lessons:

Arabic Learning

The textbook “Modern Standard Arabic” by Prof. E. Schulz has been a standard textbook for years, even far beyond the borders of Germany. With the online version of the textbook, the AL-ARABIYYA INSTITUTE has been able to set new standards for academic Arabic teaching.


Arabic Exams

The AL-ARABIYYA-INSTITUTE offers a standardized Arabic language test based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for languages. The AL-ARABIYYA-TEST, which has been on the market since 2011, offers a transparent review of Arabic language skills. The test also provides comparability of the language level reached in different Arabic teaching institutions  because the AL-ARABIYYA-TEST is independent of the language acquisition background.

With the introduction of the TOAFL in 2017, the AL-ARABIYYA INSTITUTE offers another option for self-assessment of the language level. The e-TOAFL-TEST can be understood as preparation for Arabic language examinations of any kind.
