Arabic language lessons in Manama - recommendations?

I don't see any recent threads on this topic, so I will ask for updated info on options and opportunities to learn Arabic in Manama.  I have found two schools - Berlitz and Global Institute, but I've seen no reviews on these schools.  Berlitz quoted me 240BD for 36 hrs (9 wks, two classes per week, 2.25 hrs ea).

I would like to learn to both speak and read/write.  I am a visual learner, so learning to read/write will make it easier to learn to speak.
