Learn In a Community of Care

We are focused on what is important, you.  The journey of Qur'aanic Arabic fluency is one that requires patience, care, and concern for the learner and the language, which is what we focus upon at ILI.

Getting to the Root of the Issue

The Arabic language is based in a root word structure that allows a reader to take a single root and formulate many different words with various shades of meaning.  The study of Morphology allows you to understand those patterns and thus expand your understanding of Qur'aan.
