Description

A1 Basic Arabic

It is an obligation for every Muslim to learn and understand the Qur'aan and the language of the Qur'aan, Arabic. Allaah the most High said: "Do they not contemplate the [meaning] of the Qur'aan? or are their hearts locked up?"

During the A1 level, you will begin a journey of discovery, learning the very basics of the language and laying the necessary foundations for studying the language and Islam. There are no requirements necessary to enter this level and by the end of the year you will be able to engage in rudimentary conversation and interactions.

A typical student will be one of two people.

For those who have not yet learnt how to read Arabic Characters properly and need to start from the absolute beginning, we have an additional 12 week class to help you get up to speed. This additional class, along with the main Arabic class will give you the foundation you need to study Arabic, from learning how to read and write, to speaking and listening.

Our curriculum

Throughout this Level, the student will cover the following topics:
  • Nominal sentences - Which are basic Arabic sentences.
  • Counting from 1 to 10
  • Masculine & feminine nouns

  • Fluency in reading and accuracy in writing

Our curriculum focuses on 4 key skills.

Writing

A 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.

Reading

The 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.

Listening

During 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.

Speaking

It 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.
