I know it's a long shot posting on here, but I'm looking for a decent Arabic Language centre in central Riyadh and am having some difficulties finding them through a web search and most expats I know can't be arsed.
Thanks if you can help.

That's a good question. Even here it's a bit difficult to find language schools as they don't really advertise, you need to ask around. I checked on the net for Riyadh. there are a couple of links, but they're a couple of years old.
Riyadh Institute Offers Arabic for Non-Arabs
Here's a link from a forum. Not sure how helpful it is. arabic language course in Riyadh - any advice? : British Expat Discussion Forum
Worst case scenario, you could do what I did - pick up a home study course that has a CD and book and do it on your own time at your own pace. Let us know how you make out.
I'm on the independent study buzz already and my own students and a couple of Jordanians in the office a helping but I really need an interactive classroom immersion going on if I am to get off to the right start. Left to my own devices I will get bored and end up studying other things of interest of you know what I mean.
The BC way out in the DQ zone is a long way from where I am so I will just keep on asking around. Shukran!
...some compounds offer survival Arabic lessons as an extra for bored housewives...a company I worked for paid for a Syrian to give us the basics and I used that to move on to reading, writing, and getting to know the guy behind that bush...my contacts with local color gave me amazing insights into local dialects, slang, and how truly bored everyone is...
...majestically enthroned amid the vulgar herd...
I knew some guys back in the day that took lessons at the first place Nat linked. They seemed happy enough with it.
