What will I be able to do after completing the Classical Arabic program?
Our Online Classical Arabic program is taught over five core levels to move students towards mastery in Arabic.
The first three levels are foundational in that they focus on “linguistic mobility”, meaning equipping a student with the necessary skills in grammar and morphology, (nahw and sarf), and to excel in the reading, understanding, analyzing, translating, and interpreting of classical texts. Levels 4 and 5 represent a unique milestone in the student’s Arabic development and a transition from learning the language to using it as a tool to access classical texts. These courses are comprised of rotating special studies modules focusing on both classical and contemporary subject matter.
By the end of the program, successful students will be able to critically engage an authentic Arabic text through the use and application of the grammatical and morphological concepts and principles that they have acquired in previous levels. Students are expected to reach an Advanced-Mid level of proficiency by the end of the entire program that builds their fluency in the four skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing.
