Goals of the Arabic Program
Conversation: Give the students the necessary tools to acquire oral expression through dialogue and conversation- a process that involves a considerable amount of class-time.
Reading: Students acquire the necessary tools to reach a satisfying level of reading through various methodological ways; repetition, mocking, and practicing aloud.
Writing: Students learn the correct spelling of Arabic words. Students also use the vocabulary learned in building sentences and short paragraphs with careful attention to punctuation marks.
Listening Comprehension: Give the students the keys to understand what they hear and listen-to through listening to audio and video CDs.
Library: Use of the resources available at the school library. Our library is full with books and stories for all levels and trends.
Qur’anic Reflection: Arabic Department takes pride in an outstanding connection between the Qur’an and the Arabic language through relating every-day words to Qur’an (if applicable). Verses in The Noble Qur’an are taught to prove a grammatical point or use a moral lesson found in a chapter.
Literary “Tasting”: Teachers explore the areas of beauty, simile, and figurative expressions that enhance the general literary taste at the students to further appreciate the text before them.
Educational Wealth: the texts used in our BHA books handle a variety of life situations. The outcome of studying these texts is a wealth of educational concepts about life in its colorful aspects, and additional knowledge about life, and appreciation of the creation and The Creator.
