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.

The Power of the Pen

Languages are preserved through both speech and writing.  In order to gain greater Qur'aanic Arabic fluency it becomes necessary to understand the structure of its written form and how it relates to the formation of common vocabulary found in Qur'aan.
