A New Chapter in Levantine Language Education

At Nasma of New York Culture Center, we are thrilled to announce a groundbreaking initiative that marks a new chapter in our journey of promoting Levantine Arabic language and culture. After more than 11 successful years of offering Levantine Arabic classes in New York City, we are excited to introduce Lebanon’s first and only kids immersion program. This summer, we are bringing our expertise and passion to Lebanon, offering diaspora children a unique opportunity to reconnect with their linguistic and cultural roots.

A Homecoming for the Diaspora

For children of the Lebanese diaspora, maintaining a connection to their heritage can be challenging, especially when living far from their native land. Our new immersion program is specifically designed to address this need. By immersing children in the Levantine Arabic language and Lebanese culture, we aim to strengthen their sense of identity and belonging. This program is more than just a language camp; it’s a cultural homecoming, a chance for children to embrace their roots in an engaging and supportive environment.

Why Choose Nasma’s Immersion Program?

Program Highlights

Our two-week immersion camp, running from July 15 to July 26, is packed with activities that are both educational and entertaining. Here’s a glimpse of what’s in store:

  • Cultural Activities: Children will explore Lebanese folklore, participate in traditional dance lessons, and learn to prepare classic Lebanese dishes like manakish and hummus.
