Classical Arabic Immersion Programs
Our “ Immersion” program is our center’s "Trade Mark" and the first in California. It is directed towards children (age 2 & up). During each session, children will be introduced to the Classical Arabic language through the “total immersion” method where language is acquired through a Play-Based Curriculum that includes; conversations, language games, free play, storytelling, songs, and lots of fun activities.
We have 6 levels in this program:
Classical Arabic Mommy & Me
This unique program allows little tots to be exposed to Classical arabic at a very early stage of their lives, which makes them learn it even faster than older children because they are uninhibited by the fear of making mistakes, which is sometimes an obstacle for older beginners..
Arabic level 1
Arabic (101) is your basic and second step to learning the Arabic language. The program focuses on the four basic language arts (listening, Speaking, reading, and writing) with a stronger emphasis on listening and understanding at this stage.

It is also a pre- requisite for any other advanced Arabic program.
