V) Arabic Listening-Translation Trainings
The development of simultaneous interpretation and consecutive interpretation skills and to become a qualified interpreter depend on the development of "listening" skills. A language cannot be learned only through reading and writing without exposure to language and listening to dialogues and texts in that language. Language training cannot be provided only through grammar and reading and writing. Therefore, in Akdemistanbul, four basic language skills are developed equally and those who want to become interpreters and those who want to become translators in the field of simultaneous and consecutive interpretation are intensely provided with listening-translation courses. In these courses, audio and visual materials related to all fields of life are offered from easy text to difficult texts, especially news videos are listened, and various exercises related to them are performed, so, trainees are supported to acquire knowledge by listening, to be fully exposed to that language through listening and thus to become the top quality interpreters of the market. Trainings have been planned as 60 hours.
VI) Classical Text Readings
Arabic literature is very deep in terms of its history and is a very rich literature in terms of the products it revealed. The Arabic poetry tradition, which started after Jahiliyyah and also continued after Islam, is a depth in itself. Our course "Classical Text Readings" reads and reviews the texts of sciences such as tafsir, hadith, fiqh and kalam, that are the main sources of Islam, and also examines other literary texts, especially Arabic poetry which brings rhetoric into the forefront. Those who want to have a grasp of the richness of Arabic and also to get the pleasure of studying the texts of the classical period embroidered with literary arts are recommended to attend the” Classical Text Readings“ course. Our courses are provided at two levels and have been planned as a total of 120 hours, 60 hours for each level.

Lots of trial exams are held and the solutions of the questions are given in the trainings conducted in the form of knowledge of words and sentences, grammar summary, reading techniques, focus on question types.

Our trainings aiming at carrying over the quality of education of Akdemistanbul Language Education Institutions to different institutions continue with increasing demand in Istanbul every day. Our institutional trainings, practiced with plenty of practicality and plenty of activity through the "non-mediating language education" method, show that Arabic is a language can be learned while having fun. Our institution, which provides human resources in different course hours determined by the demand from the institutions, follows the courses regularly through an academic coordinator on the field and finds solutions to the possible problems that may be experienced by immediate and on-site intervention. In our institutional trainings where different curricula are followed according to different age groups, common exams and activities are organized and the language learning process of the students is reported to the institutions at certain periods. Akdemistanbul provides services at more than thirty points throughout Istanbul, for about two thousand students. Thus, students who cannot attend the classes in our branches can also be offered the same quality of service with our expert and experienced training staff.
The importance of foreign experience in foreign language education is indisputable. Seeing the culture of the language learned, outlook of people on life, the meaning given to words and language personally and in the geography where the language is used is important in terms of grasping the logic of the language. Acting from this reality, our institution organizes training programs in Jordan, which is the closest location where Arabic is the spoken language in daily life, in two separate periods a year. In our trainings practiced as 4 weeks in mid-term break and 6 weeks in summer period, our students getting an education at the Ewan Language Education Center in Amman, which is our contracted institution, as well as a full program consisting of field courses, field trips, extracurricular activities and tourism trips.
