2018 STARTALK Arabic Program

Applications are now open! We are looking for students who are anxious to study and learn the Arabic language while participating in cultural activities.

What will I do?

  • Fun, interactive learning experiences
  • Hands-on cultural experiences, including delicious food
  • Build proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing
  • Get a jumpstart on Arabic in college
  • Learn valuable study skills
  • Earn up to a year of first- or second-year high school Arabic credit (univ. credit also an option).
  • Increase your chances of funded overseas study
  • Make great friends from all across the U.S. and the Arab world


  • All students who participate in the program are required to live according to the BYU Honor Code. We have found that this is good training for students bound for the Arab world, that they become sensitive to respecting the beliefs of others.

Attend Arabic STARTALK Day Camp!

Youth ages 10–18 years old have the opportunity to join us for a day of Arabic classes and activities on June 28. Registration is now open!
