The Al-Mad­i­na Ara­bic Pro­gram is amaz­ing! I had the blessed oppor­tu­ni­ty to take the Al-Mad­i­na inten­sive Ara­bic pro­gram this sum­mer and it has def­i­nite­ly enhanced my Ara­bic. The teach­ers are very informed and make each class inter­est­ing by pro­vid­ing dif­fer­ent ways of learn­ing. They real­ly moti­vate you to grasp the lan­guage and they pro­vide cre­ative instruc­tion so each class is engag­ing. The Al-Mad­i­na Ara­bic Pro­gram has def­i­nite­ly exceed­ed my expec­ta­tions and I hope to con­tin­ue my Ara­bic stud­ies with this amaz­ing program!

- Pari Ansary

The Al Mad­i­na Ara­bic Online pro­gram is a great resource for those who are inspired in tak­ing a clas­si­cal approach to Ara­bic learn­ing . I enrolled in an online one on one pro­gram with Ustadh Abdul­lah just over a month ago and I have already felt tremen­dous improve­ment in my con­fi­dence in learn­ing and prac­tic­ing my Ara­bic . One thing I have learned through these class­es is that Ara­bic is a spo­ken lan­guage and it needs to remain the liv­ing lan­guage of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Being able to prac­tice it with a teacher in a con­ve­nient , flex­i­ble and friend­ly envi­ron­ment is tru­ly a bless­ing . I pray that I con­tin­ue to ben­e­fit and appre­ci­ate this bless­ing and hope the same for all those out there seek­ing to learn this most beau­ti­ful and fas­ci­nat­ing language 

- Muni­ra Abbasi

I have thor­ough­ly enjoyed and ben­e­fit­ed great­ly from Al Mad­i­na Institute’s Sum­mer Ara­bic Pro­gram. The instruc­tors in this pro­gram are deeply skilled in teach­ing Ara­bic and care tremen­dous­ly about our growth as stu­dents. Com­ple­ment­ing great teach­ers, the pro­gram also pro­vides excel­lent study mate­ri­als to facil­i­tate our learn­ing. I could not rec­om­mend this pro­gram enough!

-Waleed Awwan

There is a strong link between lan­guage and iden­ti­ty. Hence the jour­ney of learn­ing Ara­bic with Al-Mad­i­na Insti­tute became more than just learn­ing a lan­guage. Every day it is a means of form­ing a new per­son­al­i­ty, thought and under­stand­ing that adds fas­ci­na­tion to its gram­mar and vocab­u­lary, inter­est in gen­er­al con­vers­ing, and pre­dom­i­nant­ly in try­ing to under­stand the Quran, the lin­guis­tic mir­a­cle that unites all Mus­lims. I found Al-Madina’s cur­ricu­lum to be unique in its abil­i­ty to pro­ceed to dai­ly con­ver­sa­tions with­in a few weeks and under­stand pri­ma­ry texts. The instruc­tors eas­i­ly inte­grate with the lat­est tech­nol­o­gy in the newest teach­ing method­olo­gies to make lan­guage learn­ing eas­i­er, more acces­si­ble, and more enjoy­able to peo­ple worldwide.”
