Young Scholars Beginning Arabic - Level 1

With over 100 minutes of enthusiastic instruction weekly, students will grow learning the 28 letters of the Arabic alphabet using Imam Qasim Ahmed’s unique family system method. Vowel marks are incorporated early to enable reading practice as students continue building their knowledge of the Arabic letters, while learning the functions of Sukuun, Shaddah, Madd letters, and Tanween. In-class practice is emphasized ensuring each student has a strong comprehension of the skills taught to advance to Level 2.
