Umar and Sara are your average Arabic students. Every year, usually around Ramadhan time, a desire to understand and connect with the Quran rekindles and therefore learn the Arabic language. They might join a one-hour-a-week course that starts with many eager students and bold objectives. Fast forward a couple of months and attendance has dwindled, classes are once every couple of weeks, and they question whether the current engagement is worthwhile. Not seeing the benefit, they drop out of the class, only to repeat the process the following year.
The Qur’anic Arabic Intensive program aims to reverse that trend. This course has been carefully designed after a comprehensive review of Arabic language curricula and focusing on implementing practical methods and abandoning those that aren’t.
The goal of the course is clear: to allow students to intimately connect with and gain a fundamental understanding of the Qur’an in its native Arabic language. To achieve this, students will embark on a three-year journey, starting with building the foundation of Arabic language learning in year one and spending the bulk of the second and third years applying that understanding toward a translation of the entire Qur’an, cover to cover.
