Read Arabic Today

The response to last night's class was wonderful.  People came from far and wide to learn how to read Arabic and Al-Quran.

We started with the First Lesson and managed to complete most of it.  Next week we'll revise for the sake of those who missed the first session.  I just hope they can still squeeze in, since the class was already quite full.

As promised, we started with only five letters of the Arabic Alphabet (ا ب ت ل ن ) and then immediately continued to read short word combinations using the three short vowels in Arabic  (ـَ  ـِ  ـُ ).  At the end of the Lesson the participants were amazed that they could read a few short sentences in Arabic and understand the meaning.
