Charter Schools: Our Arabic Immersion programs are available for Charter Schools and do not contain any religious material. Charter School programs are completely secular.
Classical Arabic Immersion Program
Our “ Immersion” program is our center’s trademark 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, arts & crafts, 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 toddlers to be exposed to classical Arabic at a very early stage of their lives, which allows them to learn it even faster than older children because they are uninhibited by the fear of making mistakes, which can be 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. The class is conducted through the immersion method using a variety of nonconventional techniques that keep children engaged and challenged. It is also a pre- requisite for any other advanced Arabic program.
This program is offered Monday - Friday for 3-4 hours from (8:30:am- 12:30pm.)
Arabic levels 2 & 3
In each of these levels, our highly skilled instructors use these immersion techniques in order to build on the students knowledge of the Arabic language with a stronger emphasis on all four basic language arts (listening, speaking, reading, and writing). These programs are offered for 3-4 hours a day, Monday - Friday (8:30am -12:30pm).
Arabic Levels 4 & 5
In each of these levels, our instructors focus more on the activities that lead to advanced language production and understadning. They also focus on the skills that teach students how to be self-directed learnersof the classical Arabic.
These programs are offered Tuesday & Thursday for 3-4 hours from (8:30:am- 12:30pm).
