There is no previous knowledge of the Arabic language required. The Arabic program is built to tailor to all student language levels.

The Arabic curriculum that will be used was built in house by Al-Madina Arabic instructors. It will concentrate on giving students the 4 basic skills needed to master the Arabic language (reading, writing, speaking, comprehension) as well as grammar.

Yes! This is a live in-person interactive program with native Arabic speaking instructors. All classes will be delivered live over Zoom.

The program consists of fourteen weeks of Arabic language instruction.

Full time students will have class four days a week, part time students will have class two days a week and students enrolled in the Saturday or Sunday program will only have class one day a week.

Classes for ages 6 to 7 will be fifty minutes.

Classes for ages 8 to 16 will be conducted in two forty-five-minute sessions with a fifteen-minute break in between.

6 to 7 year olds enrolled in the Sunday program will meet for one hour and forty-five minutes including multiple breaks in between.

8 to 16 year olds enrolled in the Sunday program will meet for two and a half hours including multiple breaks in between.

Yes, the daily schedule is as follows:

  • Full time students ages 6-7 will have class for 40 minutes, then a 15 minute break followed by 30 minutes of class time.

  • Part time students ages 6-7 will have class for 40 minutes then a 15 minute break followed by 40 minutes of class time

  • Full time and part time students ages 8-16 will have class for 45 minutes, then a 15 minute break followed by 45 minutes of class time.

Each private tutoring session is 60 minutes.

In the event that you are unable to attend a private tutoring session, kindly contact the instructor no later than two hours before the scheduled session.

In order to further assist students along their journey through the Arabic language, students will be given the opportunity to review and practice key language concepts they learned in the previous weeks. These weekly sessions are very useful for students at all levels and especially those who need further help understanding previous lessons.

For a class to commence there must be a minimum of four students. Each class size will not exceed eight students. Early elementary classes will not exceed five students.

This program is suitable for children ages 6 to 16 years old.

Classes will be based on both age and Arabic language level. It is important that children be placed in a class that addresses both their age and their level. A team of Arabic teachers will assess the students and place them in the most appropriate class.

Each student will be assessed by our Arabic language staff to see where their current placement is. The assessment will consist of an online interview. Once your level is assessed, you will be placed in the class suitable to your language needs.

There is a 5% discount for each additional child.

50% of the tuition will be refunded prior to the start of the program. No refunds will be given after the start of the program unless circumstances warrant consideration. All refund requests must be sent to samer.amous@almadinainstitute.org for further processing.
