This course was a perfect intro to Arabic. Upon completion, I was more confident in my speaking, listening, and comprehension skills. I can listen to khutbas and read Quran with far greater understanding Alhumdulillah


Previous student 2022

I have never been able to make an online Arabic course work for me except this one. Alhamdulilah I can feel the difference in my knowledge of the Arabic language, and my comprehension has vastly increased as well. I recommend this course to anyone who is seeking the keys to Islamic knowledge. MashAllah!
