Fanar Qatar Islamic Cultural Centre (www.fanar.gov.qa) offers Arabic lessons, complete with Qatari accent. For other languages, a good place to start is the embassy and national groups; most will be connected, either with organised groups or individuals teaching private classes. For example, L’Institut Francais (institutfrancais-qatar.com) offers French lessons.
