Spoken Arabic Classes


For those who would like to learn Arabic beyond basic words and phrases, the ‘I Can Talk Arabic’ classes may be of interest, and will be held beginning the week of September 15, 2012. Hadeel Alabbasi sent us the following information on the classes she conducts.

My Life

An interactive class where participants are divided into four groups depending on their level. Every group has a group leader who leads the group through the activities. The class’s content is driven from everyday life situations. Participants learn the content together, apply it in the form of conversations, and then present what they’ve learned to the other groups.
Participants do not need to read or write Arabic to attend this class.
Timing: Sunday evenings 7pm-9pm starting Sep 16th. And/or Monday mornings 10am-12pm starting Sep17th.
Fees: 20 Riyals per class.

Book Club

Every month we assign one book. The books, at this point, will be children’s books for a 2nd grade reader level. We would be using a technique used to analyze books from a philosophical stand point. This method has proven to be very affective and it will help participants with their conversation, comprehension, and thinking skills.
Participants need to know how to read and comprehend at a second grade level.
Timing: 3rd Sunday of the months of Sep, Nov, and Dec. 10am-12pm.
Fees: 20 Riyals per class + Book fees.

Learning Arabic

My Qur’an

This unique class is divided into two sections. In the first section, we would be introducing Tajweed “How to read the Qur’an properly” using storytelling that is fun and interactive. The second section would be reading, understanding, and applying Soorat “Younus”.
Participants can vary in their Arabic level. Participants who do not know how to read or understand Arabic are welcome. The class will be a mixture of Arabic and English.
Timing: Tuesday mornings 10am-12pm starting Sep 18th.
Fees: 20 Riyals + material fees.

My Grammar

The objective of this class is to make the Arabic grammar as easy, understandable, and enjoyable as possible : )
Participants need to know how to read Arabic at any level.
Timing: 4th Sunday of the months of Sep, Nov, and Dec. 10am-12pm.
Fees: 20 Riyals + material fees.

Media

An interactive class where participants watch, comprehend, learn, and discuss a piece of media. The class is divided into four groups depending on participants’ levels. Towards the end of the class, participants share what they have learned with the rest of the groups.
Participants do not need to read or write Arabic to attend this class.
Timing: Sunday evenings 7pm-9pm starting Feb 2013. And/or Monday mornings 10am-12pm starting Feb 2013.
Fees: 20 Riyals per class.

Skype sessions are also offered and will be announced at the start of the classes. Field trips will also be offered.
