Foundation Course for learning Qur’an or Arabic language – Starting January 2022

This course is for those who have no previous experience of knowing the Arabic alphabet, its correct pronunciation and the basics of recitation. 

All classes on this level have the same syllabus but will be taught at different paces in accordance to level of ability. 

Students will learn to recognise and read the different letters of the alphabet with the correct pronunciation of Arabic letters and vowel sounds. This will be followed by recognition and recitation of the formation of words and groups of words. This course will help towards meeting the entry requirements for our Learn Qur’an, or Learn Arabic classes.

The classes are currently running on the following dates. Once these classes are fully booked, we will open new classes and inform you of the dates.
