The Quranic Arabic curriculum at Fawakih caters to students of all levels. Those who are familiar with reading the Arabic script at the Introductory Level 1 with little background, if any, in grammar or reading comprehension of the Quran and who may not be able to produce Arabic in writing or in speech; who are able to read straightforward texts at the Intermediate Level 2 with the regular use of a dictionary, can identify grammatical parts of speech; who are proficient at reading challenging texts at the Advanced Level 3; and who are proficient at reading nuanced texts at the Advanced Level 4; and those who can begin to analyze tafsir and classical Arabic texts at Advanced Levels 5 and 6. The Program is structured around the required textbooks and employs a skills- based approach to language acquisition. In addition, the course will emphasize parsing and morphology in theory and in practice and translation as a primary method to ensure comprehension at every stage. Through mastery of Arabic grammar, morphology, reading, and vocabulary, the course facilitates language acquisition through both active and passive engagement.
