Ramadan Arabic worksheet

Bismillah,

Ramadan Mubarak to all Arabic Adventures fans! ūüôā

r

Last week’s lesson for the older girls focused on reading on Ramadan in Arabic and reviewing Arabic grammar concepts using the text. It was a lovely exercise to go through because the girls recognized a lot of the words. An example of how you can use the text is below:

  • ¬†Highlight the words you recognize from previous knowledge. (Help students at this stage by reminding them of similar words they may know).¬†
  • Ask students to circle any detached/attached pronouns. The ones which are not on the text, write them down at the back of the page.
  • The same task as above but with demonstratives, prepositions, sound plurals and verbs.
  • Give students the new vocab that are in the text and they don’t know from before.

Please note this text was taken from the Mawdoo3 website. It’s an Arabic wikipedia of sorts. The original article can be found HERE.

How to choose the right Arabic course!

Bismillah,

So you decide that you want to learn Arabic and proceed to enrol yourself on a course, buy textbooks and¬†audio CDs/DVDs. Two three weeks into the course you realise you still can’t hold a conversation with your Arab friend or read the Qur’an and understand it in its original Arabic like you had hoped. So you quit disappointed and put off learning Arabic for another year.

The above is a classic case of what many enthusiastic Arabic learners go through. To avoid getting disappointed and wasting precious time, ask yourself this ONE question:

What do you want to use your Arabic language skills for?

  • Is it to read and understand the Qur’an in Arabic?
  • To hold a conversation with your Arab friends without getting laughed at for sounding like a news reporter, order a shawarma in Lebanon or qahwa in Cairo?
  • To write a formal letter to the head of a company in the Gulf or become an Arabic translator?

Based on the answers to the above, go ahead and choose the right type of Arabic course that will help you achieve your goals, allow you to enjoy your Arabic learning journey and save you time and money!

Here’s an infographic on the kinds of courses you might find out there:

Arabic Grammar Lapbook – free pack

Bismillah,

We are currently on our spring break for two weeks. I’m using the extra time available to plan and create more resources for the coming term. We had a very fruitful Arabic staff meeting and Alhamdolillah as a result we feel like we know where we are heading as a team and a department.

The first lesson back after a long break is usually where we spend time reviewing the grammar concepts we have covered so far. The 3rd term is insha Allah where I am going to prepare the girls for their end of year exam. So reviewing is going to be a major theme for us this coming term iA.

Here is the free 10 page PDF of the Arabic Grammar Lapbook

So, this is what the girls from my 3 classes will be making for themselves. If hey ever leave Al Barakah school they have a hands on resource with all Arabic grammar in one place. I’ve left things blank for them to fill out in their own words and style.

You will need a document folder cut open or you can use any folder you have available. I am going to go for the cheapest option as I will be getting all 3 classes to be making one each.
