Our home-schooled children have been constructing sentences in the Arabic Language.
There are two ways to form sentences in Arabic: You can manipulate definite and indefinite nouns and adjectives, or you can pull together nouns, adjectives, and verbs.
The children have also been practising spellings which is important because it aids in reading and increases their vocabulary.
Enrol your child on our brand new private immersive Arabic sessions, taught by a former Al Ibannah Institute teacher‼️
