Teaching methodology plays an important role in transmitting knowledge and skills to our students. The
effectiveness of both knowledge and skills depends greatly on the methodology used. At Studio Arabiya we teach Arabic language and Quran using cutting-edge academic and pedagogical methods in language education.
Thousands upon thousands of ‘students of knowledge’ benefited and succeeded with our revolutionary teaching methods. Classroom audiovisual facilities, interviews with class guests, and lectures are among the techniques used to enhance learning proficiency. Studio Arabiya provides an environment that allows students to ‘live the language’ and encourages activities for communication inside and outside class. Students are strongly encouraged to become involved in self-directed co-curricular activities that put them in direct contact with local people and immerse them in the culture.
The skills students acquire at Studio Arabiya give them the confidence and proficiency necessary to function efficiently in any Arabic cultural environment throughout the Arab World.
What is the most effective method of teaching Arabic? According to the scholars’ testimonials, teaching Arabic has historically been conducted by teaching the language through the Arabic language. This is one of the easiest and most effective ways. It enables the student to use the Arabic language from the beginning and immediately start practicing the language, in different contexts and social situations. Doing so will only speed up your learning and instill the language into your life. It also solidifies your knowledge of the Arabic language and makes it easier to obtain and hold on to after completing the immersion program.
Each class meets 3 hours day, five days per week over the course of the recommended period of 12 months. There is no restriction however, to participate in this program for one whole year or for as long as you can otherwise if unable to commit for one year. You can also take our private classes, for 8 hours a day, five days a week, for as long as you would like. We accept students year-round and students can come to the institute at anytime (once they received their letter of acceptance). If you’re joining a group, you should plan to come before the first of the month, so you can join at the beginning of the level.
Classes are conducted in a comfortable and welcoming institute with carefully configured settings and tables ideal for interactive dialogue. We encourage every student, whether in level one or five, to regularly participate in class. Our group classes are generally small, allowing you and your classmates to progress smoothly and efficiently. Group classes are mixed gender, however, seating is sectioned to allow sisters to sit with sisters and vice versa. Private classes are almost always with the same gender teacher.
