Description


This is a 1 year course where the student will achieve an intermediate level of the Arabic Language and will be ready to sit and pass a GCSE exam. Since 2002 when we first began teaching Arabic,our primary goal was to educate the pure and pristine language as spoken by the Prophet Muhammad. Our primary focus was to develop a strong foundation in the core Arabic sciences, such as Nahw (Grammar), Sarf (Morphology) and Balaaghah (Eloquence).

We were given, by the permission of Allaah, the opportunity to work with the official governing body for qualifications on the new GCSE and A-Level curriculum and saw a means for standardisation of the classical way of study.

From this we developed our curriculum.
A classical ethos with a modern accredited method.
Requirements

This level is directed at those who understand basic Arabic grammar, and the difference between an Arabic noun and an Arabic verb. Each student must show adequate knowledge of all three verb tenses. For those who have studied the Madeenah Arabic series, you need to have completed half of Book 2.

Our Curriculum

Throughout this Key Stage 3 course the student will cover the following topics:

  • Ordinal Numbers
  • Comparative and superlative
  • Non-Past Tense Verbs
  • Order Verbs
  • Counting All
  • Introduction to Arabic Grammar – Verbs
  • The wonderful world of أنْ
  • Affirming & Negating actions
  • كان and her sisters
  • Sentence analysis – Nominal vs Verbal Sentences
  • And much more…

At the end of this course, the student will develop a good understanding of Arabic and have the ability to understand a large part of the Qur’aan and more complex Hadeeth as well as be able to initiate and take part in conversation.

Our curriculum focuses on 4 key skills, in line with the methods of assessment at GCSE Arabic.

Writing

At this stage each student is required to develop their writing abilities. This will be achieved by practicing letter writing, writing speeches, short stories, CV’s and more.

Reading

For this level, each student is require do read plenty of both classical works and modern writings. Classical material such as select passages of the Qur’an, Hadeeth, Classical poems and short stories. They will also be required to read modern materials such as conversations, public speeches, letters and much more.

Listening

It is required at this level to have plenty of exposure to the Arabic language. We have therefore prepared for each student hours of Arabic conversations, poem recitals, and more in order for each student to train their ears to recognise the Arabic language.

Speaking

A large focus for KS3 is for each student to become fluent in speaking and dialogue. The student needs to be able to respond spontaneously to questions, engage in conversation and ask questions of their own. We will also focus on developing the ability to describe what one seems in imagery or express their feelings about various topics.


Key Concepts Of Key Stage 3

Lesson Focus

  • Phrases that describe the state someone or something is in
  • Two types of sentences
  • ‘Mubtada’ and ‘khabar’ in-depth

Names Of Things

Lesson Focus

  • Names for the ‘doer’ of actions (i.e. the subject)
  • Names for people or things actions are being done to (i.e. the object)
