Weekend Arabic/Quran for School Age Children
More than just vocabulary, it’s an entire Arabic curriculum!
Children of the World offers a well-structured course designed to teach Arabic to students in a non-Arabic speaking environment. We offer four levels of classes from beginner to advanced. Instructors are all native speakers, have prior teaching experience and a passion for what they do. Their qualifications range from certifications in Nourania and Tajweed, to B.A. degrees in Linguistics and Sharia.
Our Program Offers...
Qualified teachers will coach your child in learning the Quran in Arabic. Our focus will be to correct pronunciation and recitation with Tajweed according to his/her appropriate level and capacity.
We invite children and parents at the end of the school year to celebrate the students’ achievements by attending the graduation event at the end of the program, where they can receive recognition for their hard work and shine by reciting Quran.
