Umar ibn Al Khattab (r.a) said, “Learn Arabic, for it makes a person more logical and wise, and increases his chivalry. Learn grammar as you learn the sunnah and shares of inheritance. Learn I’rab al-Qur’an (syntax) as you learn to memorize”.
Arabic is a highly rewarding language to learn and understand. Being an essential language for understanding the Holy Qur’an, Arabic can also benefit professional development and academic scholarship.
A primary objective in teaching Arabic as a Second language at SFHIIA is to enable students to communicate with verbal and written competence in Arabic according to their respective levels. The student is moved gradually from Nursery to higher grades towards this objective through the four basic language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. The curriculum presents teaching Arabic as a Second language in an integrated manner where all four language skills are systematically integrated.
To make Arabic fun and easy for students SFHIIA follows the Madina Arabic Reader series.
