Introductory Arabic 2


The second step in a multi-year Arabic program will take students with no knowledge of Arabic to a high level of proficiency. Introductory Arabic 2 will build on the first part of this series and will delve further into grammatical states; verb forms


  • The second level in a series of courses designed to take you from no knowledge of Arabic to a high level of proficiency
  • The biggest goal of this course is to teach you how to understand more complex sentence structures and how to use a dictionary
  • Consists of both pre-recorded lecture sessions twice a week and live hands-on tutorials twice a week
  • Special online tools will help you practice forming sentences and learning vocabulary
  • Comprehensive exams will help you track your progress


During the course, you will do formal sentence breakdowns (i.e. comprehensive grammatical analysis) of 12 hadiths. You will be required to memorize these hadiths and their analyses so that by the end of the course you will understand these hadiths completely.

This course is inspired by the classical approach to teaching and learning Arabic at institutions of religious education located in non-Arab lands. This classical approach has been slightly modified in light of modern language-learning techniques adopted by universities in the West and Arabic language institutes in the Middle East. The combination of ancient and modern makes this course the first of its kind in the English-speaking world. The method of this course is similar to the “grammar-translation method” of learning a foreign language—focusing on grammatical rules, the memorization of vocabulary and conjugations, translations of texts, and written exercises.

Weekly live sessions for this course will allow you the opportunity to put into practice all of the theories discussed during the pre-recorded sessions. Weekly tutorial sessions will be conducted by your qualified teacher. These tutorials will be highly interactive. Beyond the lessons, several very important special features will enhance your learning experience.

  • Successful completion of Introductory Arabic 1. Students are strongly encouraged to take Introductory Arabic 1 before this course, even if they have some Arabic background. This is a new approach to Arabic learning with many new technical terms; thus, most students will find it difficult to adapt to Introductory Arabic 2 without the first-semester course. If you strongly feel that you should take this course without Introductory Arabic 1, then please apply after registering.
  • The 40 Hadith of Imam Nawawi is a recommended complementary course.
  • You are required to have a copy of The Hans Wehr Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic edited by J.M. Cowan.
