This programme incorporates modern and classical Arabic as well as grammar. It is one of the most comprehensive coverages of classical Arabic and grammar available. Students who are looking a focussed study of Arabic in order to access the language of the Quran and Hadith should seriously consider completing the whole programme.
Our Arabic courses are based upon the popular Al ‘Arabiyyah Bayna Yadayk’ books which are used all over the Arab world to teach non-native speakers the Arabic language. The Al ‘Arabiyyah Bayna Yadayk’ curriculum covers all 4 modes of communication: reading, writing, listening and speaking. It is divided into progressive stages starting from Level 1 (beginner) to Level 14 (near-native), with each Level comprising of several Chapters of the 2014 edition of the Al ‘Arabiyyah Bayna Yadayk’ series of books
This is an Arabic course covering the classical text in Arabic grammar: Al Ajurramiyyah by Ibn Aajaroom (d.723h). Al Ajurramiyyah is the quintessence of Arabic grammar, its status is largely unchallenged as an excellent introduction to this first field of learning, which every scholar must master before delving into other Arabic literature. Hence, we find much attention has been paid to it amongst Arab scholars over a considerable period of time.
Up until now, this text is taught across the world in traditional institutions and is recognised as a key stepping stone to studying detailed grammar. This course is not designed for beginners, but for students who have already studied at least Arabic Level 2 or equivalent and are ready to tackle grammar in an intensive way. It is hoped by the end of the course that the student will be able to understand the basics of grammar and thus be able to deal with more advanced texts in grammar and literature
All students will be provided with class notes, which consists of a translation of every noun and verb found in the course book being studied. The Al ‘Arabiyyah Bayna Yadayk’ books will not be provided. Students would therefore need to purchase the book for class
