Adults Arabic Programme

"I have learnt so much from the Arabic language class to the extent that I now understand small pieces in Arabic, especially when I am reading the Qur'an".

Course Summary

We have established our curriculum using the popular Arabic Language series, most commonly referred to as the ‘Madinah Books’ series, with the hope of facilitating the Arabic language to all of our learners. Classes will run one day per week and are approximately 1.5 hours per session. Students will be expected to complete a number of exercises outside of the classroom (quizzes, writing and vocabulary exercises, etc.)

The course material within the Madinah Books series is utilised in a number of institutions across the world to educate non-Arabic speakers, with the intention of developing their fluency in writing, speaking and understanding.

The Madinah Books series comprises of 3 levels. Students will begin with Level 1, and may be supplemented by resources provided by the Lewisham Islamic Institute.

Madinah Book 1 – Sundays, 11 am – 12:30 pm

Madinah Book 2 – Sundays, 1 pm – 2:30 pm (Winter timings) or 2 pm – 3:30 pm (Summer timings)

We hope to start with a new cohort each year; however, this cannot be guaranteed.

Students must be a minimum of 16 years old to enrol on the course.

The cost of the course is £225 per annum.
