Will speaking Arabic help you to understand Al-Quran?

How is it possible to learn and speak Arabic once a week?

It would be very difficult to learn any language, if the only exposure is once a week.  Students who are taking the Speak Arabic Today course, are therefore encouraged to practise the words and sentences covered weekly - on a daily basis.  Audio and video materials will be made available to help with this process.  It has been proven that if one listens and repeats the same sentences (with understanding) a few times, this helps a lot with communication.  Furthermore a number of oral and written exercises will be done weekly (which should be revised daily).  This ensures success.

Speak Arabic in 2013

Assalaamu Alaykum Everyone

Initially I intended not to start a new Conversational Arabic Course this year (2013), since I had intended to rather concentrate on the existing students and improve their skills.  I must say: Al-hamdullilaah the students who started the Speak Arabic Today course last year, did very well.  They've managed to complete 6 lessons, covering 600 sentences in Arabic.
