Our curriculum focuses on 4 key skills.
WritingA key skill in learning any language is the ability to write in that language correctly, take relevant notes in that language and have the ability to apply what one has learnt in order to author something useful. For example, something like a letter, CV, have a conversation and more.
ReadingThe ability to read fluently and understand what one reads is probably the most important of the 4 skills as it is directly related to our relationship with the Qur'aan. Our ability to read and understand it. A large part of our curriculum is to develop ones ability to quickly identify meaning of words, phrases and sentence structures.
ListeningDuring this level, each student will develop the ability to recognise Arabic words and phrases primarily by listening. This is the first step to successfully having an engaging conversation in Arabic.
SpeakingIt is very important for any student of any language to practice what they learn regularly, both in and outside of class. We give a lot of emphasis on practicing the vocabulary, the use of the words in sentences and the various different ways of expressing oneself.
At the first part of this level, you will learn the very basics. Below is a video that will summarise the types of sentences that will first be required to learn.
Additional LessonsFor those who are also unable to read the letters, they still will be able to join but will have to attend the additional reading classes
These lessons begin with you learning how to recognise the letters on their own, then at the beginning, middle and end of a word. Once you master that, you will be able to put them together and read words and sentences.
Once you have a good ability to recognise the Arabic letters you will then move on to reading, with the aim of applying the rules of Tajweed. The purpose of Tajweed is to give each letter its due right, making them comprehensible to the listener.
