Where You Can Learn Sign Language In The UAE
Updated on 23 September 2020

For many around the world, language is more than a tool to communicate. It is a way to express your innermost thoughts and feelings that ultimately shape your experiences and relationships in life. But often times, it is easy to forget that not all communication needs to be verbal. 

As we observe the International Day of Sign Languages today, we’ve rounded up a few places in the UAE that teach sign language, so you can learn a new skill while opening yourself up to a whole new world. 

DUBAI

Pomegranate Institute 

Located in Al Barsha 1, Pomegranate Institute offers you a chance to learn American, British or Arabic Sign Language. There are three types of sign language courses–Basic, Independent and Proficient–available for both adults and kids. You can choose to go for group, semi-private or private sessions. 

Location: Rasis Business Centre, 1st floor, Al Barsha 1 | Contact: 04-2211216 / 054321 8337

Eton Institute

Eton Institute offers American Sign Language (ASL) classes for both individuals and businesses. Learning courses range from intensive to regular, and you can also opt for virtual or weekend classes. You’ll also have an option of choosing either group sessions (with a minimum number of four students) or one-to-one sessions with an instructor.
