Regardless of the curriculum any child follows, Arabic is a living language and after completing all arabee levels, users are able to easily converse in Arabic on many subjects such as family, animals, cultures, explain their emotions & feelings and more.
How can I tell if arabee is a good programme for learning Arabic?
All children have different learning patterns and a different pace in absorbing information. arabee provides a variety of mediums to appeal to all learners. Like all educational subjects, learning a language requires regular study and revision. Exposing your child to language media such as Arabic news or cartoons will assist them with their learning and they will begin to pick out words and structures. How much your child learns and retains will depend on how much time he/she spends studying and using Arabic. We have made the arabee programme fun with games to reinforce the concepts, this makes learning enjoyable for children and they don’t pay attention to the time.
As a non-Arabic speaker how will I know when my child is proficient in Arabic?
Like any language when someone is able to hold a conversation in Arabic, they are proficient to a specified level.
