The particle inna (ان) is known as an accusative particle because of its effect on the case ending of its subject.
Like the verb kāna (كان), an accusative particle will take a subject and a predicate although with different case endings.
Because of this similarity, these particles are considered to be verb-like.
Students have been learning verbs and particles during their Arabic lessons at Tuition Club
Last week in our study skills workshop we learnt about how the brain works. Identifying whether a student is a left- or right-brain thinker can help them work to their strengths. Understanding how memories are formed can also assist the learning process. Join us for our next session tomorrow where we will be learning how to study effectively!

Our home-schooled students have been using nets to create 3D Shapes.
3D shapes such as cubes, cuboids and pyramids were made.
The children were taught how to recognise, describe and build simple 3D shapes, including making nets.
They were shown a cube and cuboid and then given some squared paper on which to make a net which helped them make an identical shape.
This activity involved knowing what shapes are needed to make the net and knowledge of how it will all fit together.

Germs are tiny organisms. They are so small that they are not visible to the naked eye and can only be seen using a microscope.
Many germs are useful and keep our bodies healthy. Some types of germs are even used to make food like bread and cheese, or as medicine like antibiotics.
Occasionally, germs can make us feel poorly. Only certain types of germs can have this effect.
There are Read more [...]
